How does credit insurance work?
In general, a company covers all or a majority of its business, and may choose to cover export, domestic or both types of accounts.
Policyholders are eligible to file a claim when a customer is insolvent or financially unable to pay the outstanding balance owed. Since Coface operates around the world, they are able to cover sales of subsidiaries or sister companies in other countries, as well as provide local features such as risk monitoring and collection services.
As a client, you have access to the online policy management tool, Cofanet. Here you can search a database of over 50 million companies worldwide to request, change or cancel your protection. Cofanet securely stores all of your account details in one central location. All stored information may be easily exported for use in the internal management system of your business.
