Why Corporate Scorecard?
With the growing uncertainty around global economic conditions, organisations need to take extra precautions to safeguard themselves against risk. There’s a long, winding and potentially perilous road ahead, so more care than ever before is required in mapping out the potential impact of procurement & credit decisions and dealing with unknown entities. Procurement Managers would have all heard the war stories of project delays, legal costs, subcontractors not being paid, all due to contractors who have failed and suppliers who make commitments beyond their capacity. Credit managers all know how easy it is to accumulate bad debt. So to navigate smoothly through these hazardous times, effective risk management is critical to keeping you on track.
We are able to provide an extensive range of Services, extending from on-line ABN verification as well as ASIC and property searches to Credit Rating Reports and Forensic accounting services. We specialise in providing financial viability assessments for procurement, grants and credit decisions and we are the only mainstream provider of Australian Business information with an ASIC license to provide independent Credit Ratings. All services are either available online or can be ordered online and are supported by a leading edge transaction and order management platform. With 20 years experience and a proven track record, Corporate Scorecard provides significant benefits.
