Accountability is a web-based service that was created by founder members Howard and Wendy Kemp, birthed by pure frustration, with the aim of "protecting" businesses through reducing the risk caused by outstanding payments.
By partnering with the major Credit Bureaus, our members have access to an active credit database of 22 million consumers
and 3 million businesses. Accountability members are able to access our user-friendly website
24 hours a day, 365 days of the year. A simple login process affords our members the opportunity
to vet prospective clients whenever the need strikes, thereby accurately determining their credit
worthiness before extending them the required trade credit. Accountability is a TransUnion Credit
Bureau Channel Partner. As such, our actions are determined by the provisions of the National
Credit Act, No 34 of 2005 and the National Credit Regulations.
OUR VALUE PROPOSITION
We aim to give our members the option to manage their debtors according to the status of their relationship. Listing their
customer with the Credit Bureaus is most often the last resort for our members.
Our collection facility is not only user friendly, but is also highly effective. Generally, a notification to debtor is perceived
to be an empty threat as most defaulters know that amounts below R20 000 are unlikely to be pursued
via the legal process.
Our notification to debtor differ from the idle threat in as much that there is recourse. We clearly state that should the amount
not be paid by the stipulated date (which is 28 calendar days from the initial notification to debtor
as per the National Credit Act), we will list the business, directors or in the case of a consumer,
the individual, as a default payer with the major Credit Bureaus.
Accountability is the dominant web-based service team, aiming to protect SME and Corporates by providing tools to reduce credit risk.
