Red Flag Alert for Construction Companies

Businesses in the construction sector are vulnerable to becoming insolvent through bad debt.

Red Flag Alert allows construction companies to monitor their customers for signs of financial distress and take action to protect their business.

Avoid the Insolvency Domino Effect

The construction industry is built upon long, interconnected supply chains. Businesses often rely on being paid by their clients so that they can pay their suppliers and contractors.

Often one business in the chain becomes insolvent and cannot repay its debts to suppliers. When this happens, it could mean some suppliers in the chain can also no longer pay their own suppliers. The result is a chain reaction of insolvency that ripples across the supply chain.

Red Flag Alert helps construction companies to avoid this fate by providing an early warning if customers face financial difficulties.
