From Our Customers

Listen to how we have helped our customers

“One advantage that RFA has over its competitors is the health rating – this becomes key when you haven’t got stability in the market. It allows you to be more strategic, utilising the health rating to be proactive and focused in targeting potential customers


Energisave Online

“Allows us to evaluate our customers credit score – particularly given the energy crisis... there has been a lot of value-added solutions they’ve brought to our sector. We want to make sure our customers are around in the next 2/3 years because our business projects itself on renewals.”


Exchange utility

“Real time data is important when it comes to winding up petitions or legal action... looked at an account and it will say it was fine on Creditsafe but the next day there’s a problem. RFA gets their court information long before, every 15 minutes from the London Gazette. It is more current which helps us out... we are more confident rejecting slightly earlier.”
