Most customers today require credit terms in order to buy goods and services. A reluctance to offer credit can place suppliers at a distinct competitive disadvantage. Furthermore, with competitors often having trade credit solutions of their own in place, can companies afford not to level the playing field with a trade credit solution of their own?
Despite the uncertainties in today’s marketplace, granting credit can mean the difference between missing out on opportunities and successfully securing competitive tenders and maintaining the ability to secure sustainable and profitable growth in both new and mature markets.
