Partnership News – Graydon partners with Know-it

Partnership News – Graydon partners with Know-it

Graydon, Europe’s leading provider of business data and insight, and Know-it, a new cloud-based credit management platform, have announced a partnership. They will be joining forces to automate the credit control process of SMEs.

SMEs across the UK are chasing a combined £61 billion in late payment. Know-it, founded by Lynne Darcey Quigley, who has successfully run UK leading commercial debt recovery company Darcey Quigley & Co for over 14 years, have just launched their platform, offering SMEs the ability to mitigate credit risk, increase cashflow and reduce debtor days. Know-it allows users to run business credit checks, monitor changes, automate payment chasing and collect overdue unpaid invoices, all in one place.

The all-in-one credit management tool relies on Graydon intelligence for their automated credit check service called ‘Check-it’. Check-it provides business credit reports and monitoring for current and prospective customers. With real-time data from Graydon at their fingertips, Know-it customers can streamline their credit control process.

“With our latest technology and valuable data and insights, we are happy to help Know-it giving their customers piece of mind. This partnership enables them to make better credit decisions and detect signs of fraud.” Craig Evans, UK Country Director, Graydon 

“We are very pleased with Graydon as a partner. By offering our customers real-time data from reliable sources, we can empower them to make faster, more-accurate decisions. In turn, this will minimise the risks they face. Although interruptions, delays, and mistakes are an inevitability in the word of business, knowing who your customers and partners are can make a world of difference – particularly when it comes to avoiding late payments which are risking the financial health of so many intrepid British businesses. Boosting cashflow is a national issue for SMEs, and we are determined to give businesses insight into who they do business with.” Lynne Darcey Quigley, CEO, Know-it
