BCCA’s Newest Credit Report Offering

Last week we unveiled a new credit report which includes a credit score based on industry-specific aging combined with trade data from Experian or D+B.  

We already have commitments from: Founders (who are contributing $10K and data in return for an additional 25% discount for 5 years) Cox and Media General; Leaders (who are contributing $6.5K and data in return for an additional 15% discount for 4 years) Schurz, and Contributors (who are contributing $3.0K and data in return for an additional 10% discount for 3 years) Graham Media Group. To join your industry colleagues who will have the fastest and most complete information available to make credit decisions, contact Arcelia Pimentel - 847.716.7004 X104 or apimentel@bccacredit.com.

Do you need to make a credit decision in 60-minutes or less?

If your answer is yes, request a BCCA Commercial Credit Report - no credit application required! 

Now you have two options for requesting our Commercial Credit Reports - with a BCCA Custom Credit Report (one additional credit report unit) or on their own for three units. [read more
