CRIF for the real estate and construction sector
CRIF supports the owners of real estate and pension funds, as well as administration departments with new lettings and address management systems.
In the construction industry and the ancillary building trades, deliveries against invoice carry disproportionate risks because of the above-average rate of failure and the high turnover rates. CRIF has, over many years, developed a market-leading pool of experience on payments in the construction industry. CRIF currently supports over 500 customers from the construction and ancillary building trades.
CRIF offers numerous products to assess the risk of defaults on payments by corporations and private individuals. Create the optimum match between products, prices, payment terms and credit limits.
Increase the prospects for the success of your debt collection measures by using products developed especially by CRIF for the debt collection function.
As well as new customers, existing customers also need to be checked on a regular basis. CRIF offers many professional solutions in this area, allowing for efficient portfolio management.
CRIF collaborates with leading international partners to offer solutions and services to recognize fraud in applications or transactions.
Dealing with foreign customers and suppliers should not become a barrier to your international growth. CRIF will provide you with well thought-out solutions.
