euromicron earns top marks in credit rating

euromicron AG wins plaudits from independent rating agency Hoppenstedt Kreditinformationen GmbH

The independent rating agency Hoppenstedt Kreditinformationen GmbH has given euromicron a top assessment for its outstanding creditworthiness. The index currently comprises around 4.5 million companies in Germany and evaluates their credit rating on a scale from 1 to 6. euromicron was given the grade “1”, the best possible result and one that just 3.3% of German business enterprises were able to achieve.

The certification “Top Business Partner” is a prestigious and acknowledged accolade in Germany and documents euromicron’s excellent position and image as regards finance and accounting and its structured business processes.

This rating confirms euromicron’s sustainable corporate policy of not only offering a comprehensive footprint and nationwide service, but also being a financially reliable and solvent business ally to customers, suppliers, partners and banks.

The CreditCheck rating index, which is compiled by Hoppenstedt Kreditinformationen every six months, is regarded as one of the most important and dependable measures of the solidity and economic strength of German companies. Its risk assessment not only includes all key demographic and financial data for a company, but also a total of more than 650 million items of data on payment behavior.

Hoppenstedt Kreditinformationen GmbH obtains information on payment behavior from its sister company and cooperation partner D&B Deutschland GmbH. D&B collects more than 500 million items of invoice information for the DunTrade program. The program is the largest pool for sharing payment information free of charge in Germany and worldwide. National and international companies from all industries feed data on their debtors into the program. That enables an objective assessment of the payment behavior of business partners.
