Client testimonial


"We were having real issues setting credit limits, partly due to knowledge and partly due to a lack of confidence. We realised that we couldn’t grow our customer base and business without taking risks, but we didn’t know how to properly manage that credit risk. Bringing Octempo on board has been a real eye-opener and allowed us to drive sales knowing that professionals were managing the credit risk"

"The first time I used Octempo we were a very small business with a turnover of just £75k, but immediately I was impressed by the way they took care of us. We didn’t have the first clue about credit risk and they spent a lot of time explaining what they were doing, as well as getting on with it. As the business has grown, Octempo have been right alongside us as an invaluable partner. I think the most impressive contribution they make is managing credit risk so we can trade profitably and confidently with higher risk customers – an absolute godsend in a recession"
