The telltale signs of impending failure have not changed over the years; the combined experience of my senior staff helps us to identify serious problems and alert our clients before it’s too late.

Accounts Receivable Management Solutions (ARMS), sister company of Information Clearinghouse, Inc., continues to gain industry recognition for its predictive success in spotting bankruptcies and minimizing its subscribers’ bad debt write-offs. The newly designed ARMS database and its predictive measuring tools have accurately provided early warning signs of over 10 industry bankruptcies and/or business closings in just its first six months of operation. With the economic downturn certain to result in more business failures, ARMS has already identified a number of weaker privately held companies that may be forced to reorganize in the near future. Chief Executive Officer Lawrence Sarf commented: “I have been involved as a court appointed trustee and was a recognized expert in all insolvency matters for over 25 years. The telltale signs of impending failure have not changed over the years; the combined experience of my senior staff helps us to identify serious problems and alert our clients before it’s too late.”
