Learn best practices in making effective credit decisions without breaking the bank with the credit report costs.Many companies have adapted the practice of running a credit report for every new customer that is looking to buy from them. Those reports serve a purpose, but at a fairly high cost. Does your company need to run a credit report for all new accounts? What if you found other ways to get information and eliminate the cost of credit reports would you and your boss be interested in hearing about this? This topic will help you learn how to evaluate the best ways to gather your credit information and learn about your potential new customer by obtaining information from your sales team, the intranet, the customers' website, trade groups all at very little or no cost to you. You can effectively make credit decisions with these other tools and impress your boss with cost savings. You will learn to partner with your sales team as well as your customers and those relationships will help you be more successful in your credit role.
