In this age of easy credit and ample liquidity, granting credit and obtaining credits is too easy!
Does it mean that credit management is no longer important? On the contrary, it has become ever more essential for business to survive and stay competitive. To make a quick decision on whether credits should be and limit to be granted is no longer just a scientific calculation, but also involve the art of intuition, connection and possession of adequate market information. Credit can make or break an organization, especially the smaller ones. Knowing when to give and how to give credit require professional skills, personal experience as well as in-depth knowledge of the market.
