A UNIQUE business venture has been created in North Tyneside thanks to two local entrepreneurs.
Despite being the first of its kind in the UK, Alex Martin and Simon McKenzie are already looking at big plans to expand UK Credit Services after realising that services are often inaccessible to smaller businesses due to large fees.
The Cobalt Business Park-based company is a business-to-business credit referencing, business process and debt recovery company, offering credit referencing on a flexible and affordable contract-free monthly subscription.
Alex said: “As business owners in the past we appreciate that having good business processes in place is essential especially when it comes to all things financial.
“However, traditionally the solutions and facilities available have only been accessibly to larger businesses who can afford to invest in expensive bespoke systems or employ staff dedicated to that area.
“We wanted to address this and ensure that every business has access to the same services, including SME’s who are more at risk if payments are not made to them; therefore it is essential that they are informed to make the right decisions, receive as much support as possible and benefit from our services on terms that are agreeable and at an affordable price.”
Simon added: “Our systems have been developed with the hard working business owner, manager and director in mind; they are quick, easy to use and most importantly they are flexible with no lengthy and expensive contracts.
“While we acknowledge and have embraced modern day technology, we still believe in good old fashioned customer service and speak to all of our customers regularly on a one-to-one basis.”
In the next 12 months the company is aiming to expand nationwide, employ a team of 20 from its head office and employ at least ten further business consultants.
UK Credit Services provide online credit referencing reports from more than 120 countries, delivered through their online system, helping provide debt recovery for businesses.
