Why do businesses participate in the Trade Exchange Program?

Credit professionals have long relied on the experiences of their peers to make informed decisions and minimize credit risk. They have always engaged in a collective, community approach. Creditsafe brings a credit community approach utilizing the Web and thus delivering the kind of insight not possible with traditional credit bureau approaches alone.

Today’s credit industry is built on a contributory model and companies have been securely sharing this data electronically for over 40 years. Businesses share this A/R data because:

  • Sharing rewards your ‘prompt payers’ and changes the behavior of your ‘slow payers’ (sharing will get you paid faster!).
  • It is safe, secure and confidential. Your company name and information are never revealed.

The power of your 3D Ledger comes from combining your customer payment information with our national database of businesses. That’s how we can tell you:

  • Unique insights and changes to YOUR customers because we know how critical they are to you.
  • Quickly identify customer issues that are most important to you.
