Credit Management Event – Where it’s been, where it is and where it’s going
18 June @ 10:00 - 15:00Free
Atradius, Onguard and the CICM invite you to join us at a dynamic and practical seminar on: ‘Credit Management – where it’s been, where it is, and where it’s going’.
To say we are in a period of economic uncertainty is probably somewhat of an understatement. There has never been a more relevant or crucial time for credit management procedures to be 21st century. The era of Credit Management that we are accustomed to is coming to an end, and in many cases, businesses throughout the UK are utilising strategies based upon legacy systems and antiquated practices. Automation of simple tasks is key to increasing efficiency so that the real focus can be put on complex tasks and customer care.
Join us in Cardiff, for the opportunity to receive insight from top specialists in the field of Credit Management.
During our seminar, Atradius and Onguard will discuss how big data and analytics can be used within credit risk management. Philip King, CEO of the Chartered Institute of Credit Management will open the seminar. Philip will share his thoughts on the Credit Management industry and where it is heading. Atradius will then share their experience.
After a networking lunch, Onguard will talk about how a sophisticated software system in Credit Management can bring major benefits to credit and finance departments. What are the possibilities and advantages of dedicated software over the use of Excel? What impact will Artificial Intelligence have on Credit Management Software? Our experts will answer these questions and more during the session. Furthermore, we will invite the audience to share their opinions of credit management in the 21st century and beyond. Why is this important? Because your input is key as to how 21st-century credit management will evolve alongside the likes of Onguard and Atradius expertise.
