This webinar will provide tips and techniques for credit managers facing the challenge of evaluating their company’s foreign customers, especially amid trends toward larger credit limits, longer payment terms, and other demands from international customers . . . and sales reps. It will also include updates on credit conditions in key international markets in Europe, Asia, and Latin America. These topics will be addressed not only in the context of the ongoing global recession but also with an eye to the coming economic recovery, which may engender even bigger credit challenges.
