A credit group is a group of companies, often in the same industry, that join together to share credit information on mutual customers. Industry credit groups, also known as 'credit interchanges' are usually monitored and managed by an outside party, like ABC-Amega, with the expertise to ensure the information shared is factual and in compliance with all antitrust guidelines.
We currently manage groups in a variety of industries such as: paper and printing, media, giftware and home décor, chemicals and more. Interested in setting up a group for your industry? Please contact us – we welcome the opportunity to help you get started.
