E-bcm strikes alliance with ICC

Tie-up will enable resellers to obtain risk and credit information on UK businesses

Online checking and financial management service e-bcm has entered into an agreement with ICC to give its customers access to the risk and credit information provider’s database.

The alliance will enable e-bcm subscribers, including IT resellers, to receive updates on UK businesses and directors. The web based service will allow e-bcm customers to obtain reports and information on company directors, with a credit scoring system to indicate risk levels.

Subscriptions start at £2.99 for small businesses looking to gain information that usually only large organisations would have access to, to reduce the risk of late payments and huge debts.

Dennis Scott, commercial director of e-bcm, said: “ICC has an excellent reputation amongst credit and finance professionals for providing the most up to date and accurate information available in the UK. The quality and depth of its services is unrivalled in and we’re delighted to be working with them to meet the needs of e-bcm customers.

“ICC’s database is useful to companies in all walks of industry and commerce. The company is particularly well known in the accounting and finance profession and is used by practices throughout the UK as an authoritative source of information on registered companies, small independent businesses and the individuals responsible for running and administering companies.”

Ian Goodenough, managing director of ICC, said: “ICC is delighted to be working with e-bcm to help them to provide a fast, accurate and reliable source of business-critical credit risk information. As with any financial service, the devil is in the detail and that is where ICC concentrates its efforts.”

Goodenough added: “We pride ourselves on delivering timely information that is verified and accurate to our customers and our partnership with e-bcm will help many smaller firms from all business sectors to make use of our information to give better protection to their businesses from bad debts and late payments.”
