The Benefits

ACP Accreditation Benefits

The Accreditation has been designed to feed real benefits directly back into your business.

The framework provides you with a key tool to improve your performance. By looking at the three layers of the Accreditation cycle, Core Process, Continuous Improvement and People Development it provides a method of moving the business forward.

The expected benefits from ACP Accreditation are:

  • A benchmark of core processes and practices against a Credit Management standard;
  • A framework for continuous improvement;
  • A structured approach to training and development.

The review of the Core Process gives you a benchmark against best Credit Management practise across many industries, irrespective of customer, company size or company sector. This gives you an objective external assessment of the processes you utilise. It will also make you aware of future opportunities to change and improve how you achieve targets.

With a Vision in place, the Continuous Improvement cycle provides a structured approach to assessing process and policy opportunities and implementing the changes that will have the biggest impact on you business.

No Credit Management department can deliver without people. By clearly defining what is expected of staff at all levels you are giving staff the opportunity to excel at what is important to you and your business. Staff can understand exactly how their role fits into the business and the value they are adding, leading to both increased morale and effectiveness.

We expect to see your business realising:

  • Improved customer satisfaction;
  • Improved cash flow;
  • Better staff morale and motivation;
  • Better bottom line results.
