Equifax Canada Industry Credit Groups now fueled and supported by an innovative new technology platform - ICG Advantage™

Toronto, ON, November 15, 2012 – Equifax Canada today announced the launch of ICG Advantage™ - an innovative new technology platform that allows Equifax Industry Credit Group members to collaborate and interact more effectively within a secure and safe online environment, while exchanging information on business customers and prospects.


“Equifax ICG Advantage is a dynamic, web-based meeting platform that helps these groups be even more effective,” says Carol Gray, President Equifax Canada. “Simply put, ICG Advantage offers groups a powerful, one-stop solution that includes better technology and better data,” Gray added.


By using Equifax ICG Advantage, participating group members will enjoy:

More efficient, productive meetings:

  • Regular group e-mails, web alerts and updates keep members informed between monthly meetings, plus 24/7 access helps members meet the challenges of a fast-paced global economy.

Improved credit risk intelligence:

  • Collective group data is enriched with Equifax credit risk insights, including predictive scores that forecast payment delinquency or business failure. “Flash Notices” from group members alert others to changes that could affect the credit of key customers.

Deeper industry relationships and market knowledge:

  • Online technology promotes easy, consistent communications for stronger relationships and a secure, professional forum for peer networking and discussing emerging industry trends.


Industry Credit Groups have been helping Canadian businesses better manage their credit risk for more than 100 years. An Equifax Industry Credit Group, which consists of member companies within the same industry, provides an opportunity for financial professionals to join together to collaborate and share credit and risk information on mutual business customers.
