Credit Clear continued rapid sales momentum in May with its disruptive technology offering now highly sought-after as its leader says it’s winning business faster than ever seen before in the industry.

Payments technology company Credit Clear (ASX:CCR) has announced new business in May across multiple clients is expected to add $1.55 million in revenue over the next 12 months.

New clients signed in May include one of Australia’s largest water utilities, three financial services providers and a TAFE.

Credit Clear has also been engaged by one of the financial services firms on a pilot phase where on expected success the company will be able to service a $2 billion debt portfolio.

New clients in May, along with a material increase in volumes from existing clients, has seen Credit Clear’s active customer accounts climb to 825,000, up 136% from June 2021.

More volume from existing clients

Along with the success of signing new clients, Credit Clear has seen a material increase in referrals from existing clients.

The company said the increase in volume was anticipated for two reasons. Firstly, there has been significant pent-up demand created by regulatory restrictions and self-imposed limits put in place during the past two years in response to COVID-19.

Secondly, the broader macroenvironment, including a sharp increase in cost of living, is resulting in an uptick in customer accounts falling into difficulty and being referred to Credit Clear.

Credit Clear’s May success builds on its strong momentum throughout this year.

Funds raised are set to be used for its growth strategy, including developing technology to onboard clients, increasing the level of automation in its offering and create efficiencies in customisation requirements for new clients.

Winning business at unprecedented fast rate 

Credit Clear CEO Andrew Smith said the company was winning business at an unprecedented fast rate, “faster … than I have ever previously experienced in this industry.”

“This is because of our technological advantage that can provide clients with an immediate uplift in performance.

“We also win business because  our technology is supported by a full-service offering, where we bring a modern and  holistic end-to-end approach to account receivables management.”

However, he said as previously flagged with investors the volume of new clients has become a real challenge to onboard.

“While this is a fantastic problem to have, it nevertheless is one that needs to be solved,” he said.

“The additional capital raised will allow us to quickly build  a scalable solution to client onboarding that allows the business to grow unrestrained  into the future in Australasia and internationally.”
