NACM Preferred Partner HighRadius brings the power of industry credit reports directly into credit management to automate manual work, streamlines processes and reduce risk.
Columbia, MD: May 8, 2014‚ÄĒHighRadius Corporation, a leading provider of financial supply chain management (FSCM) solutions, and the National Association of Credit Management (NACM), a leading resource for credit and financial management information and education, are proud to announce the completion and go-live of HighRadius‚Äô extensive integration of NACM‚Äôs commercial credit reporting services.
This innovative integration automatically parses incoming NACM data and pulls it directly into credit workflows, allowing members to isolate, weigh, score, track and trend virtually any variable they require. No longer is the member looking at a simple credit report, rather, they are leveraging the collective experience of their fellow NACM members within their industry group, across the United States and in growing numbers internationally. Key integration functionality includes account monitoring, alerts, batch processing of credit scores, full reports and, most recently, data reporting to NACM‚Äôs National Trade Credit Report (NTCR).
‚ÄúHighRadius raised the bar with the wide array of information our members can obtain through automation and use to directly drive their credit management activities,‚ÄĚ said Bill Meeker, Chairman and CEO of NACM Tampa, Inc. ‚ÄúThe deep integration with HighRadius‚Äô configurable products reduces not only the time and cost of incorporating NACM information into credit workflows, but also the resources needed to share data with the National Trade Credit Report database.‚ÄĚ
A longtime NACM Tampa member and early HighRadius adopter, Tech Data Corporation, was the driving force behind these enhancements, driving the integration beyond typical standards. HighRadius also developed a call-out module for Tech Data that easily retrieves data and images from NACM to feed the company‚Äôs SAP risk management system. According to Scott R. Tillesen, CCE, CICP, Vice President, Credit & Customer Care, The Americas at Tech Data, ‚ÄúThe efforts of HighRadius helped streamline our approach to gathering agency data for both automated and manual risk analyses.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúBusinesses are spending too much time manually collecting the various pieces of information they need to make decisions such as credit reports, financials and historic data. These low-value activities introduce delays and increase exposure to risk. Our partnership with a market-leading credit data provider, such as NACM, is a great complement to our ability to eliminate low-value manual tasks and focus resources on making critical decisions and reducing risk. This focus is key to strengthening our leadership in credit management and automation,‚ÄĚ said Sashi Narahari, CEO and President of HighRadius.
