Upon approval for the Affiliate program, you will be able to make introductions between your referral and your assigned TCD executives. The initial point of contact with a referral is normally with their CFO, CEO, Controller or Investor. See Affiliate Journey for the process involved.
You are compensated at 5% of the retainer value on a monthly basis, which can be extended indefinitely if a qualifying referral is generated every twelve months. See terms for further details.
An initial discovery consultation is conducted to determine level of service and solutions required, followed by a retainer contract for services. See Client Journey for a high level overview of the process.
In a smoothly running department that has excellent processes and sophisticated technology, you can simply replace or add qualified people. However, if you have numerous delinquencies, unforeseen bad debt write-offs and/or out of control deduction problems, you need to focus on the true cause of the problem. TCD provides solutions that can quickly remedy these issues and keep them from reoccurring.

The demonstrated values and business ethics of The Credit Department set the industry standard and duty to serve clients first. Because we are deeply integrated into your business, we may be privy to pricing, sales goals, promotion, trade credit risk tolerance and strategic plans. Serving competitors within your specific market space occurs only when agreed on by our clients and when in compliance with anti-trust regulation. Our secure technology is also designed to protect valuable data.
Managing trade credit risk is much more complicated than just making collection calls. Few companies have the experience of working inside manufacturing, distribution and service businesses. Most highly skilled trade credit experts remain in Fortune 100 companies their entire careers. TCD has spent millions of dollars to integrate technology into our model and monitor the next generation technologies. Most companies that manage outsourced trade receivables do not have that technology or capacity to innovate like TCD.
