CRIF and ZHOUBOTONG build strategic partnership to provide one-stop credit risk solutions for small and medium-sized foreign trade enterprises
CRIF and Guangzhou ChouYin Group (ZHOUBOTONG Foreign Trade Integrated Service Platform) initiated the strategic cooperation at the beginning of 2019, and are committed to reducing the credit risk of SMEs in foreign trade. Recently, the two parties also built an Application Programming Interface (API), enabling enterprises to obtain business information on trading partners directly on the platform, greatly simplifying the operating process and improving efficiency.
Through its international network, innovative technology and high-quality business information, CRIF provides SMEs with comprehensive and flexible business information solutions that enable companies to make informed business decisions through more reliable customer information, so as to improve credit risk management, reduce business risk, and promote the development of enterprises.
The ZHOUBOTONG Foreign Trade Integrated Service Platform applies the “Internet+” concept to systematically optimize and integrate all aspects of traditional foreign trade. The platform provides a one-stop service for small and medium-sized foreign trade enterprises, simplifying the complicated traditional foreign trade process, greatly improving efficiency, and reducing service costs. Now, with the partnership between CRIF and ZHOUBOTONG, SMEs can easily obtain domestic and overseas business credit reports on the platform through the API to review the background of business partners and reduce credit risk in foreign trade, leaving them time to focus on exploring more business opportunities.
“CRIF is always pursuing innovation, creating value for customers with better solutions. Through its collaboration with ZHOUBOTONG, small and medium-sized foreign trade enterprises will be able to trade in a safer environment, which will also strengthen their competitiveness”, commented Fion Fok, CRIF General Manager for Hong Kong & South China Region.
