Credit Hound

Credit Hound is an advanced credit control software

Designed to help you work more proactively

Integrating with your ERP system, Credit Hound shows you where your money is and who you need to chase. With all the information you need on the screen to help you chase payments, you can record notes and schedule follow-up calls. Save time to carry out repetitive tasks by setting up rules and actions to automatically send chase letters, put accounts on stop and schedule phone calls.
