Like Peter, NCI sees the advancement young credit professionals through training and education as vital to our industry.
We have been lucky enough to be supporters of the award for many years, throughout this time there have been many advancements in trade credit and the way in which businesses go about managing their risks.
At NCI, we have also adapted in the way we operate and the products that we offer. For some time now we have been offering commercial reports, debtor monitoring, electronic credit applications and commercial collections. Products such as these ensure that our clients have the best possible access to the right credit management tools when they need them.
Trade credit insurance is becoming more prevalent as insolvencies are tipped to rise around the country as a result of Covid-19, with the IRD now actively liquidating businesses that owe money.
Our recent client survey tells us that many businesses are facing challenges to do with:
- COVID-19 and ongoing associated issues
- Obtaining the required credit insurance cover
- Getting paid on lime
While there is an increase in risk, businesses can use the newest resources available to ensure they remain protected. These young credit professionals are the ones who will develop and use this technology to better the industry and overall practices into the future.
