Cement & Building Materials

The group was one of the first users of CREDITARK’s prime versions. The outcome of solutions helped the company to measure the risk weighted profit margins of their wholesales and supported the optimum allocation of Lafarge’s bearable credit limit for the years 2009 – 2013. The credit risk management team along with the group’s CFO accomplished a significant decrease in unpaid receivables and days sales outstanding.



Novartis is one of the users of the latest version of CREDITARK. The company is using CREDITARK to assess and manage credit risk towards 3 types of clients: Public-owned hospital and organizations, re-sellers and pharmacies. The complexity of different credit policies, the volatility of the macro-economic environment and the strict regulatory framework in pricing could only be managed through quantified and objective process. CREDITARK provided a dashboard where the company’s Credit Risk Manager has the ability to review and execute an integrated policy according to its annual risk-adjusted RoC.


Consumer goods & Food sector

The company with the use of credit risk expertise is addressing the challenge of deciding optimum credit limits in a very diversified and volatile market. Credit policies have to adjust to a client level and not just in a context since each transaction has unique features. Raw qualitative and financial data have been transformed to quantified predictive indicators.
