TDX Group partners with ITN and the CICM on film to help improve perceptions of the credit industry

DX Group, an Equifax company, has been working alongside The Chartered Institute of Credit Management (CICM) and ITN Productions to take part in a new film called ‘Credit Champions’ which has been produced to help improve understanding of the credit industry.
Launched at the Credit Awards, ‘Credit Champions’ is a news and current affairs-style programme created by the CICM and ITN Productions. Within the programme a number of key spokespeople from TDX Group highlight the ways in which the company uses sophisticated analytics and insight to build a better profile of people in debt which it then uses to aid recoveries for a range of large creditors and UK Government departments. The programme also features some of the valuable work TDX Group carries out in its local community, Nottingham, with charities such as the Children’s Bereavement Centre and Notts County Football In The Community.
‘Credit Champions’ explores the critical impact of the credit cycle, and how taking an integrated approach to credit management is helping raise industry standards across the globe. It showcases the principles of the credit management lifecycle, and how it can be applied to manage credit risk. ‘Credit Champions’ brings to life why relationship-building between creditors and their customers who owe money is so important by illustrating examples of best practice and highlighting solutions to underlying problems. The programme also looks into how poor credit management or lengthy payment terms can have a detrimental impact to not only the business, but the mental health of those involved in the supply chain.
The credit management team can hugely impact the success of a business and ‘Credit Champions’ looks at the training and qualifications on offer from CICM as well as showcasing those who are making best use of the training on offer. The programme reveals how people skills, the ability to understand customers and personal development shine through in those who work in credit management.
Drawing upon ITN’s 60-year heritage and expertise in storytelling, presented by national newsreader Natasha Kaplinsky, the news-style programme combines key interviews, case studies and sponsored stories from American Express, C2FO, Cedar Rose International Services Limited, Darcey Quigley & Co, Dun & Bradstreet, Elevate Credit International Limited, Lovetts, Pay360, Rimilia, TDX Group, The Lending Standards Board, Vision Blue Solutions and Zinc Group.
