CMA’s anscersX report now offers up to four domestic credit bureaus, Dun & Bradstreet, Equifax, Experian, Ansonia Credit Data, and a comprehensive International report spanning 18 countries on demand. No contracts or minimum purchases required.
September 18, 2018 – Las Vegas, NV – In response to requests for easier access to information and a growing preference for transactional reports over credit reporting contracts, Credit Management Association™ (CMA), in partnership with Trade Information Exchange (TIE), has enhanced the anscersX combined Commercial Credit Report. The report will now include otherwise difficult-to-obtain results from small- to medium-sized businesses from Ansonia Credit Data, complementing data from the big three bureaus. An additional international report option is also now available, with data from 18 countries.
“Since it was launched in 2012, the anscersX Credit Report has been among the most popular of CMA’s member benefits. Many of our members, which are small to medium-sized companies, have told us that they prefer to pull reports on a transactional basis without having to sign a long-term contract. Larger companies, with contracts with one of the bureaus offered, can take advantage of the on-demand access to one or more of the other bureaus (if extra due diligence is warranted),” said CMA President and CEO Kim Lamberty, CAE. “This adds to the overall array of benefits that CMA offers its members and transactional customers by allowing them to select the specific bureaus they need on a case by case basis. Prices for the reports can fit any budget.”
Combining data from D&B, Equifax, Experian, CMA and Ansonia Credit Data is a unique approach developed by TIE. “The main advantage of the anscersX Report is that it combines data from up to four major providers giving them a more complete picture of their customers on one report. We put a lot of effort into combining the data from multiple data sources in an easily understandable way. The anscersX reports provide the data and scores needed for most credit decisions,” offers Robert Shultz, the TIE Managing Partner.
The new international anscersX report spans companies in 18 countries, including detailed company information, complete financial statements, key ratios, credit score and contact information for companies: United Kingdom, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxemburg, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Cambodia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, Mexico, and Afghanistan. Since the report is web based, companies with offices throughout the world can access anscersX as well.
The anscersX Report is helping credit departments with limited time and resources gather credit information quickly. “It is worth it to get an answer in minutes as opposed to calling all the trade references on a credit application,” says anscersX user Mary Donaldson, Office Manager, Worthen Equipment Inc.
Judy Bennett, Credit Manager, Brown-Strauss Steel,also likes the ease of use, “I have pulled several anscersX Reports and have been pretty happy with the results. We will continue to order anscersX Reports.”
“CMA members and customers tell us that maintaining multiple contracts with providers can be time consuming and expensive. We needed to make access to information easier and less expensive by offering a one-click combined report,” shares Lamberty. “anscersX Combined Business Credit Report attempts to solve that issue.”
