OnGuard signs ICM Corporate Partnership

Press Release – 19 March 2014

OnGuard, the credit management software specialist, has agreed a new Corporate Partnership agreement with the Institute of Credit Management, Europe’s largest membership body for credit management professionals.

OnGuard’s sophisticated software can be integrated into one single solution that focuses on credit risk, collections, complaints and cash allocation. Credit managers have reported significant DSO reductions within one year of using its software.

OnGuard is a global organisation, headquartered in the Netherlands and with its UK office in the heart of London. It believes that in the current business environment, when payments are unpredictable and the client-customer relationship can be strained, greater support is required to improve financial KPIs.

Michael Facey, Marketing Manager at OnGuard, says that forging a closer alliance with the ICM is a key part of its growth strategy in the UK: “The ICM has a considerable amount to offer our business, and we in turn believe we have a great deal to offer its members.”

Philip King, Chief Executive  of the ICM says he is extremely pleased to have signed the latest corporate partnership and looks forward to a closer working relationship with OnGuard: “The ICM is always keen to work with industry leaders and especially those that can improve the working efficiency and efficacy of our members, and to help them deliver an even better service for their businesses.”

As part of its Corporate Partnership, OnGuard will be presenting at a series of the ICM’s Technology Masterclasses in Leeds, Manchester and London. Full details available on the ICM’s website: www.icm.org.uk.
