Our unique database translates to more relevant information, which translates into you making better credit decisions and making more money. Many businesses find that Ansonia’s core business credit report is the only credit risk decision tool they need.

Our Data
is Fresh

What would happen if you gave a customer a large amount of credit, only to find out too late that the report you had didn’t cover the latest stomach-churning drops in the company’s credit history? You may have a sudden, looming realization that you might never get the money for that sale.

Ansonia to the rescue! Unlike many other credit reporting companies, we continuously update our database 24/7, ensuring the freshest data possible. And with a click of a button, you can get the latest judgements and public records. This is our expertise — to lessen your anxiety over future credit decisions.

We Do Not Buy
Our Trade Data

There are some business credit reporting companies that buy, repackage and resell other credit reporting companies' data. We collect our own up-to-date and reliable data and don't sell it to other companies. Nor do we buy data reports from other companies. Our database is unique and secure.


We Do NOT Own or Partner With A Collection Company

It's the only thing we do and we do it well. You can depend on us to ALWAYS give you accurate information that will benefit your business.

Match Factors

Members who provide data receive up to a 40% discount on their business credit reports.





No Finance Degree Needed

Have you noticed that reports from the other business credit report companies are extremely hard to read? You need to learn about a customer's credit worthiness fast. But you're stuck wasting time trying to figure out a report that is full of numbers, but doesn't tell you much.

It's difficult to tell a good customer from a bad one. There may be a note the customer was 90 days delinquent on a payment, but you are not told if that was years ago with just a single slow payment, or if the customer is delinquent all the time. And hey, if you can't find out what you want to know NOW, the report is worthless. You might as well flip a coin.

This hurts your business. You may take a chance on a customer who winds up burning your company. On the other hand, you might pass on somebody that would be a great customer — and you lose the sale.

Ansonia saw this problem and fixed it. Our reports are extremely easy to read. We go the extra mile to make sure ALL the numbers make sense. And we are sticklers for assuring you have the exact stats you need when you need them.


No Pre-Paid Contract Required

Annual contracts are devised to lock people in long term. Other business credit reporting companies encourage you to give everyone in your company access to their information — the more employees running reports, the better.

And when contract renewal time comes, they pull out a 10 pound stack of all the invoices you pulled to support why you can’t live without them. Oh, and buy the way, your price goes up.

Often they will offer a business a three-year contract with price escalations. So they lock you in, guarantee themselves a nice revenue increase each year, all while selling the exact same report.

Why should you agree to pay 3-5 percent more over a period of 3 years for the exact same report? If it’s the same report, why should you have to pay more from year to year? Are the reports giving you more value? We offer you a better solution.

With Ansonia, you only pay for what you use. No long term contracts. No escalating fees over time. And to top it off, members who provide data receive a discount of up to 40% on their business credit reports. You get the accurate, easy-to-access credit reports you need at a dramatic savings.

Additionally, members who provide data receive up to a 40% discount on their business credit reports.

You Can't Go Wrong with Ansonia

When Transwest Capital first started out we were using another credit data company to verify the credit-worthiness of our debtors. While we were not unhappy with the company, we did not know what we were missing until we signed up with Ansonia Credit Data. After switching to Ansonia, we started to realize that the information we were previously using was not as fresh as advertised. With Ansonia, we know we are receiving the most up-to-date and in-depth look at a debtor’s credit-worthiness. In a word, we had become complacent with the previous company, trusting that their data would help us protect our receivables. It did, to a point. Now, we feel as if we have a partner watching our backs 24/7. Coupled with the customer service the staff at Ansonia provides, you can’t go wrong with Ansonia Credit Data.”

—Brian Cummings, Operations Manager
Transwest Capital



We Can Integrate With Your Software

We welcome special programming requests. Have you ever tried to get a customized project with one of our competitors? One of our current clients signed a contract with our competitor to provide a customer-facing online credit application.

Our client worked with that company for over an entire year, and failed to receive a working product. We took this project on from scratch, and had the entire process ready to go in just two months.

Businesses run lean shops. Employees are generally expected to do more and more in a finite number of hours per day. Automation/integration is the key.

With our 21-st century, state-of-the-art technology, we easily integrate with any software. We can “push” data intelligence to our customers to help them streamline their processes. These kinds of tools mean you don’t have to pay someone to sit at a desk and look at credit app after credit app and run one report at a time.

Live People Answer Our Phones

This really shouldn’t merit a mention. After all, it’s common sense that a company would take calls from their clients so they could help them and provide great customer service. Right? Wrong.

Most calls to our competitors seem to be sucked into a pit where voicemails go to die, leaving you stranded and without help. Fortunately, that’s not how we operate.

It’s a point of pride for us to pick up the phone when you call and to give you as much help as you want. So if you don’t want to feel like you’re alone in the dark, give us a call now at 1-855-267-6642 to let us shine some light on your situation.

How To Check Credit Score For Business Articles

 

5 Tips for Improved Accounts Receivable Analysis

Here are 5 tips to improve your process today.

1) Stay on Top of Things

Stay vigilant and keep on in front of your accounts.

Accounts receivable analysis is something that should be done on a constant basis taking into consideration that the tides can turn quickly with a debtor that might be over-extended or affected by seasonality or industry.

Protect the bottom line of your company bottom line with automated credit monitoring tools and set up alerts to notify you of significant changes in a debtor account and behavior.

By regularly monitoring significant events like bankruptcy, fraud, judgments, or slow payments; you can start solving problems proactively before things get out of control.

2) Screen your Business Accounts

Obtain up-to-date business credit reports on your debtors before extending credit or authorizing additional transactions.This will help minimize or prevent collection and legal issues before they even start. Screening potential clients will help identify high credit risk accounts before you can get burned. Yeah, easier said than done, right? Obtaining updated reports on all of your debtors could give you hundreds of extra reports to read every week, further bogging down the credit approval and review system.

The answer is to have the credit information of your debtors and trending updates provided by a push technology through a vetted accounts receivable management software.

3) Know your Limits

No one on the outside will understand your business as well as you do. Define your own limits for allowable account size and days to pay.While there are of course industry standards, these might not pertain to your business. Depending on your industry you may require shorter terms therefore increasing your cash-flow, or your customers may require extended terms for which you have made concessions.

Define special criteria to make the most of loyal customers and prevent bad credit risks from going too far. If using automated monitoring, make sure you can set custom filters to set custom filters to match your threshold.

4) Share the Responsibility

It is easier said than done, but delegate different analysis tasks to different employees.

Analyze your accounts for your important notification events, and have more than one person on the receiving end of the reports. Not only will this save you time in accounts receivable analysis, but it will provide an extra few sets of eyes to catch any potential problems. Additionally, this is a great way to spread responsibility for vacation and sick days, making sure your assets are always monitored.

Remember, sharing is caring.

5) Use a Customizable Report

Utilizing an accounts receivable management report can provide you with the analytics and overview you need for a quick and effective review of your risk saving both time and money in identifying potential issues.

This reporting should show not only your trending experiences, but also compare to the industry and creditors experiences.

When looking for ways to improve your accounts receivable analysis, remember these tips to keep your cash flowing. Automatically monitor credit events to identify potential problems before they can get exponentially bigger. Screen your debtors to identify potential problems with an aggregate system to identify poor credit risks before business begins. Set custom account limits that work for your business needs, not arbitrary guidelines based out of text book. Add an extra set of eyes to the reporting process by sending notifications to different department personnel. Lastly, use an accounts receivable management software to improve timely identification of debtor trends and flags.

Accounts Receivable Fraud Schemes You Need To Know

Accounts receivable fraud has long been on the radar of the Securities and Exchange Commission, and with non-financial corporate receivables at $2.3 trillion in Q3 of 2010, it is easy to see why: that is a lot of potential revenue, and the fact that AR assumes some uncertainty as to when (and whether) it will be paid allows unscrupulous employees room to manipulate the data.

Mark Beasley, in a report published in Accounting Horizons, found that receivables and inventory were the most misstated asset accounts. And with single instances of fraud averaging about $180,000, knowing how to recognize and prevent accounts receivable fraud can mean the difference between a healthy revenue and accounting system and a dangerously compromised one.

Here are several types of AR fraud to be aware of:

The Most Prevalent Accounts Receivable Fraud Schemes

Lapping Accounts Receivable (or Hiking)

Lapping of accounts receivable is one of the most common forms of AR fraud, and one of the more difficult to detect. Lapping describes an employee recording payments to incorrect accounts in order to conceal a theft. If Company A makes a payment, an employee with access to payment processing can steal the funds, then record the next incoming payment from the account of Company B to to the account of Company A. This can continue indefinitely, with each subsequent payment covering the missing funds in an earlier account.

Ironically, one of the signs that an employee is lapping accounts receivable is that they seem to be too dedicated to their work: coming in every day, possibly showing up early or working late, and refusing to take vacations. That is because the scheme never ends: the fraudster has to show up every day to continue the misdirection

The blog feature a full article on lapping of accounts receivable, and how to prevent it.

Sales Data Manipulation (or Skimming Fraud)

A skimming fraud occurs when the same employee handles both invoicing and payment processing. The employee presents an invoice to a customer for the full cost of service and records a lower invoice or payment, pocketing the difference. This causes a discrepancy in goods or services rendered and revenue received, but can be difficult to detect if these two data streams are not well reconciled.

Fraudulent Delinquency of Accounts

If an account is marked as delinquent, it may be included in the allowance for the company for doubtful accounts and removed from gross receivables. When this happens, payments on the account may no longer be accounted for to the best ability of the company. An employee with access to the accounts classification system can mark a current account as delinquent and begin pocketing the payments.

Diversion of Delinquent Payments

Similar to the above, an employee with access to payment processing can divert payments that come from delinquent accounts, knowing that these accounts may have been written off and may not be well-monitored.

Shell Collections Companies

When an account is turned over to a collection company, there is often no guarantee that a payment will be collected in full. Exploiting this uncertainty, an employee with a relationship to a disreputable collection company may receive kickbacks in exchange for turning over delinquent accounts, which the collection company can collect on and under-report to the company holding the account. Thus, the company loses out on money that was paid in order to settle the receivable debt, while the dishonest employee and the shell company both profit.

Employees receiving kickbacks from shell collections companies can also choose to assign current accounts to the company, ensuring a steady stream of diverted funds.

What Can You Do?

Supervision, separation of duties, data reconciliation, account monitoring, and audit controls are all important in the prevention of accounts receivable fraud. Among other strategies, your company should:

  • Ensure that no employee has access to the whole invoicing, collecting, and recording process for payments on accounts receivable,

  • Require that employees within payment-related departments rotate through specific tasks,

  • Implement mandatory vacation days, so that all employees must take all their vacation in a given year, disrupting any opportunities for long-term fraud,

  • Conduct random audits using an outside professional,

  • Reconcile bank deposit details against invoicing and A/R posting regularly,

  • Periodically review delinquent accounts and accounts sent to collections, or require that changes in account classification be approved by a supervisor who has no access to payment processing,

  • Encourage employee whistleblowing on cases of suspected internal accounts receivable fraud.

    Accounts Receivable Portfolio Management

     

    Analysis is at the very heart of portfolio management. It is through analysis that Credit can provide a wider framework for both quantifying credit and collection decisions by establishing norms and consistent risk classifications. This results in consistency across the receivables portfolio and offers justification for decisions. However, in the world of manual collections, decisions of the collectors are often based on their own intuition and experience.

     

    When dealing with individual accounts, some collection professionals are capable of operating at a consistently high level based on both historical activities and a measure of precedence. Of course, when it comes to broader portfolio management, this does not mean they are always on target; because it leads to a bias for limited risk and conservative decisions, which in turn leads to missed opportunities and ultimately lost money for the bottom line.

     

    Credit managers can get a better idea of their accounts by utilising comprehensive portfolio management analysis. Perhaps overall level risks are low, and maybe certain accounts would not fail as often as anticipated, so large profit margins could well justify extending credit in order to increase sales figures.

     

    There are a number of benefits to be gained with analysis, while risk can be minimised to a certain degree. Huge benefits can be gained in the following three areas of portfolio management:

     

    Quickly Identifying Underperforming Accounts

     

    Future results will be more positive because it is now easier to locate underperforming accounts. In addition, it is up to collectors to compare individual customers within portfolio segments so commonalities and trends can be identified. Of course, this process will make the underperformers even easier to locate because the randomness has been removed from the identification process. Inventory management, industry trends, and seasonal attributes become even more obvious when it involves one whole segment of your portfolio: commonality is allowed for when addressing the broader needs of this group.

     

    Efficient Definition of Your Collection and Credit Management Needs

     

    Now that you have identified your underperformers, you need to address your management needs. Ask yourself the following questions:

     

    Why are pricing deductions in a particular Accounts Receivable segment increasing?
    Why is this sales territory slower than others in collections?

     

    When you can answer these questions, you will be able to amend your internal practices and create structural improvements in order to affect collections in a positive way.

     

    Undesirable � Desirable Accounts: Understanding the Difference

     

    The great thing about portfolio analysis is that it can reveal extremely valuable and important information about your customers. It means you can increase your market share with established customers by identifying market segments, or customer types, that are able to handle a higher credit line. By supplying your sales department with information regarding both your top and bottom accounts, it is then up to them to target their efforts towards lowest potential risk prospects; those with the highest potential for long-term customer relationships, and thus profits. The key to success is being able to rank your accounts based on risk and other relevant factors.

     

    If you are competing with top organisations it is crucial that you manage your accounts receivable portfolio; and utilising all the reporting and analysis tools that form part of accounts receivable software systems is just part of that competitive edge. There are various drill down options which allow for almost unlimited methods for viewing your accounts, and it is these different perspectives that make identifying trends so much more beneficial and efficient for both short-term and long-term financial planning.
