We know your needs, so the solutions we offer are sensitive to the trade and the stage of development of the market in which a company operates – we are flexible and we will adjust to your needs.

By implementing our solutions, your company gains an effective and multi-level debt collection process:

  • A preventive stamp of ERIF BIG S.A. on invoices or bills you issue makes them a priority as you notify the payer of the consequences of being in arrears.
  • Sending a request for payment is a confirmation of the intent to take action and to report the debt and the details of the debtor to ERIF BIG S.A. An official reminder often results in repayment of the full outstanding amount for fear of the consequences of a negative report in the economic information bureau.
  • Reporting a customer or a counterparty to a database and thus making the details of its debt publicly available is a strong incentive for them to repay the outstanding amount. Details of the debt available in ERIF BIG S.A. can severely hinder the use of financial services (credit, loans, instalment plans), or signing agreements with ISPs, cable or digital television service providers. If an entity conducts business activities, it may be an obstacle for him/her to concluding agreements with counterparties and to obtaining trade credit.
  • Sending a notification that the details have been reported to ERIF BIG S.A. is official confirmation that the negative data is available in the Register database and every market participant can access it. Being aware of the fact that every potential customer or counterparty can obtain the information on debt results in the payment of overdue amounts in order to quickly remove the negative report from the economic information bureau.
    The faster you react to the payment gridlock on the side of your customers and counterparties, the greater the chances that the debt will be paid.
  • Constant monitoring of the counterparty will enable you to keep track of their financial situation. Automated tracking of ERIF database resources is a guarantee that you obtain current information when the company you are working with is reported in ERIF BIG S.A. It will be a warning for you indicating the risk that even the amount due to you may not be paid on time. If you are aware of this in advance, you have a chance to take preventive measures to ensure the financial security of your business.
