In-Person Experian Business Information Forum

Stay one step ahead. Ensure you strike the right balance between offering better terms than your competitors and limiting your credit exposure. Making the right credit decisions based on up-to-date accurate information will ensure that you are competitive while safeguarding your business at the same time.

Join us on Wednesday, 14 August at Emperors Palace for a half-day session where we’ll discuss some of the challenges and success factors related to navigating the business credit landscape in today’s economic climate.

Businesses held back by legacy processes will lose out to more efficient rivals. Making faster and more accurate credit decisions has become a critical differentiator.

Data is crucial for well-informed decision-making and the starting point when developing a modernization strategy.

During the session, subject-matter experts and industry guests will examine the value of combining the right data, predictive analytics, and technology to grow your customer base quickly, safely, and profitably.
