Consumer Trace: 3 Easy steps to find customers that have defaulted

In South Africa today, virtually any business needs to implement a sound consumer tracing system to find consumers that have defaulted on payments. Not only is this necessary in order to minimize risk and losses, but also to ensure the growth and prosperity of your business.

The problem that many businesses – as well as professional tracing companies – have is that a single consumer trace can be an expensive, complex process. Not only do you need subscriptions to all the major credit check bureaus (such as Transunion and XDS) to find various bits and pieces of information, but these subscriptions can also become expensive if it’s not something that you use on a continuous, regular basis.

It is for this reason that pbVerify has launched a comprehensive South African consumer tracing system that combines all the information that you are looking for into one easy-to-use platform. Besides being able to get all the info you need in one place, it’s also more cost-effective (for small companies as well as professional tracers) because there’s no pricey monthly subscription – you simply pay for each  consumer trace search you do.
