The Aftermarket Supplier Credit Group (ASCG) is a national group of manufacturers who supply the aftermarket segment of the motor vehicle industry. ASCG’s objective is to maintain a robust network of forward thinking aftermarket suppliers for the purpose of providing accurate, timely and industry-specific credit data, while sharing ideas, insights and best practices with industry peers.
The group provides its members with regular opportunities to network, share ideas, and provides access to education that supports informed decision-making to avoid credit risk.
Making good credit decisions is dependent upon having the best information available. ASCG members can access the latest customer A/R data from creditors, receive expert educational training, and network with like-minded credit professionals. Benefits of membership also include:
Access Information On-Demand
ASCG’s web-based interchange system, GoAmega, contains A/R experience on thousands of customers, including major national retailers, warehouse distributors and buying groups. You see exactly how the customer pays creditors in your industry as well as in related industries. ASCG member-owned data is timely, not months-old as often is the case with generic credit reports.
Networking and Education
Group meetings and events always include roundtable account discussions and workshops to develop credit, collection management, and leadership skills. Whether meeting in person or virtually, one of the greatest benefits of ASCG membership is the ability to network and develop relationships with professionals in similar industries.
ABC-Amega also sponsors a free webinar series with programming presented by topic experts in credit, collections, bankruptcy, business operations, the economy, global trade and more. These programs provide members with additional opportunities to stay on top of industry trends and learn applicable skills from experts in the field.
Discounted Collection Services from ABC-Amega
ABC-Amega provides a broad range of B2B accounts receivable management solutions at special rates for ASCG members, including third-party global commercial debt collection and first-party accounts receivable outsourcing. Our certified collection representatives work as an extension of our members’ A/R departments to achieve the highest rate of return on the accounts they place, without jeopardizing the relationships they’ve built with their clients.
If your business is in the motor vehicle industry and sells to warehouse distributors, wholesalers, retailers/etailers and mass merchandisers, consider membership in ASCG. It can support informed decision-making and mitigate credit risk to help your company thrive and grow.
