Providing credit information, since 1915

Make informed credit decisions with Lumbermens credit reports

Lumbermens has been in continuous operation since 1915 providing credit information to members for over 100 years.

Reporting on commercial businesses throughout North America and offering specialized construction credit reporting and commercial credit reporting products, based on up to date data, we place our members in the best position to manage credit risk. Information collected by real time investigation, and through our database allows Lumbermens Credit Group to provide a comprehensive range of services.

Our members have improved their receivables risk and days sales outstanding through informed credit decisions using our reporting services.

Markets and the economy change quickly and clients must know about past due accounts from last month end, or the NSF cheque yesterday or the de-registration of a company last week not the prior years information or 90 days later. A strong viable business six months ago can fail tomorrow as technology, currencies, regulations, and demand changes faster today than ever before in history.

Our services facilitate our clients’ credit application and account review process by providing the latest real time quality information, thereby significantly reducing credit application fraud and relying on older information often suffered by clients relying on database credit reporting companies whose information is often dated. Credit Window provides access to real time payment data about a client’s customers. E-Groups will automate credit groups and provide a new generation of instant credit reporting resources to clients.
