aBILLity integrates with Creditsafe
Union Street Technologies has announced that the soon to be released, version 2.6, of its aBILLity™ billing platform will feature out of the box integration with Creditsafe, a leading supplier of company credit reports. Union Street claims that this integration will enable its channel partners to more effectively conduct risk management of their customer base by providing access to detailed company credit reports, and tools to continually monitor the credit status of both existing and prospective customers.
According to Union Street, aBILLity presents data drawn from Creditsafe’s database in a familiar traffic light structure, allowing users to assess clients’ credit worthiness at a glance when browsing customer lists in aBILLity. Credit score information for the entire customer base can be automatically monitored for changes on a 24 hour basis, and email notifications can be configured to alert users in the event that a change in score is identified.
Other company data held by Creditsafe, including registered company address, full credit history, and director contact information can be viewed and automatically populated into aBILLity. For resellers that use Microsoft Dynamics CRM, this functionality has also been made available in Union Street’s CRM solution and is available as part of the aBILLity integration or as a stand-alone CRM solution.
Vincent Disneur, Head of Sales for Union Street commented, “By integrating with Creditsafe, aBILLity is able to offer powerful business information in a low-maintenance, easy to use package which our clients and channel partners will already be familiar with. In addition to managing existing customers, this integration is particularly beneficial when bringing on new business. Giving Billing Platform users access to credit checking facilities ensures that new prospects can be vetted as they are added to the system. “The simple to use interface opens this facility up to any member of staff with access to aBILLity or Microsoft Dynamics, and no longer just your financial department.”
