Make Credit-granting Decisions Easier with Current Credit Information for Your Industry

What is a Credit Group?

A credit group, or credit interchange, is a group of companies that join together to share credit information on mutual customers. An outside party (like ABC-Amega!) monitors and manages the groups to ensure the information is factual and in compliance with antitrust guidelines.

We have been managing credit groups since 1965. We offer businesses a complete range of credit information services geared to the needs of specific industries including paper and printing, media, giftware and home décor, chemicals, motor equipment and more. As an ABC-Amega credit group member, you can access credit information in real-time to make informed decisions quickly and easily to minimize credit risk. All of our credit groups are member-driven, where members facilitate the exchange of credit information on common customers, support account information discussions, and discuss the latest developments in credit management. Members play a role in determining the direction of the group by participating as a board member or on one of the group’s committees.

Membership Benefits

Making good credit decisions is about having the best information available. As an ABC-Amega credit group member, your company has access to resources for improving credit processes, reducing the time needed to reply to credit inquiries, and minimizing risk. Timely information provides your company with a competitive advantage.

Members facilitate the exchange of credit information on common customers, support account information discussions and explore the latest developments in credit management. Training and networking opportunities also take place at regularly-scheduled group meetings and annual conferences. We provide members with access to all ABC’s webinars and e-newsletter.

Credit information is provided each month by members, for members. You can be confident that it’s accurate and current. Urgent information like bankruptcy, change in ownership, or accounts placed for collection are posted daily. Members are automatically notified within minutes of posting.
