It is perfectly normal for Credit Reference Agencies to review and update their scorecards with changes in the economic climate and available data. As new information becomes available, we must seize the opportunity to utilise this data and improve predictability further.
We must also be vigilant in tracking marketplace trends and make sure that our predictive models are reflective of current developments. With constant changes to economic, social and political climates, some of the indicators that are predictive of failure today are likely to change in the years to come.
Creditsafe continually enhance our scorecards to reflect the current risk factors that have emerged within the local economies. Assessing the entire business population, we have refined and confirmed what indicators commonly hold for commercial stability, and what is predictive of a company heading into difficulty.
