The Barrett Steel Group has teamed up with Experian, one of the UK's leading credit reference agencies, to offer an exclusive credit checking service to its customers. The pay-as-you-go facility, which is not available from any other steel stockholder, offers instant and concise information to evaluate companies' credit worthiness.
Neil Atkins, Director Group Credit & Risk at Barrett Steel, explains:
"In these challenging economic times it is vital to minimise credit risks. It could mean the difference between success and failure.
"The service accesses clear, concise and up-to-date detail, so that informed decisions can be made. Our customers will have the opportunity to evaluate the credit worthiness of existing or prospective clients and download a report instantly. They can take advantage of a pay-as-you-go system, which is not usually offered by Experian. Available online it has no hidden costs or contract fees - customers simply pay for what they use."
Barrett Steel has an introductory offer of 30% off the first order. Customers can also sign up for ongoing monitoring, with alerts sent via text or email.
The credit checking service represents the latest provision in Barrett's customer focused approach, which includes high quality materials, processing facilities and business innovations.
