What is the payment predictor?
You can find the payment predictor on a CreditorWatch credit report. The payment predictor displays a company's payment history, including the average number of days that they take to pay their bills.
Industry history is also available, so you can compare how the business is paying in relation to other entities in the industry. This helps you identify and avoid slow paying businesses.
By making data-driven credit decisions, you can protect your business' cash flow and stay ahead of bad debt.
