Great Neck, NY (PRWEB) April 25, 2013
Accounts Receivable Management Solutions (ARMS), an affiliated company of Information Clearinghouse, Inc. (ICI), announced the expansion of its coverage to include Canadian businesses. The extensive ARMS database now covers all of North America, offering subscribers access to critical b2b information on companies of interest as well as the ability to launch new credit investigations. Subscribers receive unfettered access to over 20,000 North American company credit files across more than 20 industry segments, including real-time alerts, Chapter 11 coverage, layoff and store closing activity, credit scoring, delinquency activity, and the new portfolio-based Payment Scoring Report for quick identification of deteriorating payment trends. All aspects of the database are accessible to password holders and are customizable through a Q Methodology “Dashboard” portfolio, enabling users to quickly and easily narrow their focus to specific companies, industries or geographies.
Commenting on the coverage expansion, Lawrence Sarf, CEO of ARMS, stated: “The depth and breadth of our ARMS service is literally evolving daily driven by our commitment to technology. Quite recently a number of our national manufacturer subscribers made mention of the perceived deficiency in reliable trade credit tools with respect to Canadian retailers. Inasmuch as trading opportunities to the north allow for most U.S. manufactured goods to be shipped into Canada without a great deal of difficulty and since there are not huge cultural differences that might effect consumer behaviors, our American clientele was looking for a means to extend credit to those retailers without setting up a separate or duplicative function. Simplifying matters even more is the fact that these transactions, when shipped from south of the border, are often billed in U.S. dollars.”
ARMS’ product offerings and database continue to grow exponentially, further establishing ICI’s leadership in the financial analysis, trade credit and bankruptcy expertise fields through its three principal operating companies: F&D Reports (http://www.fdreports.com), Creditntell (http://www.creditntell.com) and ARMS (http://www.fdarms.com).
