For the first time, Marketron customers will have the opportunity to share real-time credit information about industry advertisers with members of BCCA, the media industry’s credit association. This new integration eliminates the manual process of reporting on aging information to BCCA’s data warehouse. Marketron customers will have a choice to opt-in to an automated transfer of real-time, factual credit Information into the Media Whys report, alongside collection filings, tax liens, judgments, corporate linkage, payment trends, and trade data. There is no fee for media companies to participate.
The integration of Marketron customer data with the Media Whys report is the first and only outlet for media companies to seamlessly provide real-time, credit data about advertisers and agencies without specific media company attribution – the data flows into one aggregate umbrella of Media Provider for media-specific credit scoring. Information reported to the data warehouse is only used to develop Media Whys credit reports; it is not shared with other credit bureaus.
According to Mary M. Collins, President and CEO of MFM and its BCCA subsidiary, “We are delighted to be partnering with Marketron. This vital intelligence from Marketron will enable BCCA report subscribers to assess the credit worthiness of advertisers using up to date information from other media companies.”
Says Deborah Esayian, Chief Revenue Officer, Marketron, “We are gratified to make this kind of information available to the industry in a turn-key manner – it helps our customers make better decisions that directly impact their businesses.”
