Market Service, Inc. ("MSI") d/b/a ARMS, today announced the launch of several enhancements to its Credit Intelligence Dashboard, including a new fully automated Credit Application Portal.

The Credit Application Portal was designed by a team of seasoned credit professionals to provide a faster and more efficient solution to the typically time-consuming and labor-intensive credit application/new customer investigation process using end-to-end automation. The online platform tracks the status of every step in the customer onboarding process and includes customized electronic credit applications and trade reference forms, paperless reference requests, online document storage, and complete workflow automation. The Credit Application Portal is supported through ARMS' in-house investigation team; the team continues to monitor the account after the initial investigation is complete and alerts users of any future derogatory, credit-relevant news items.

ARMS concurrently rolled out several new modules on its state-of-the art dashboard, including a new Deteriorating Payment Trends interface designed to easily identify slow paying accounts or customers trending in the wrong direction. Additionally, the Customer Concentration Map has been enhanced to include a new sales opportunity tool, enabling users to identify industry-specific companies with healthy payment behavior that are not currently being serviced by the user's brand.
