(中華徵信所新聞稿)

總公司位於義大利波隆那的全球徵信公司CRIF於今日稍早宣布自原有股東手中收購中華徵信所企業股份有限公司(中華徵信所)股權,藉以布局亞洲市場,推動企業成長及拓展規模。 

中華徵信所於1961年成立,為台灣最大的專業徵信公司,服務據點遍及台灣全島,提供全方位工商資訊及顧問服務,在中國大陸的北京及上海亦有營運之分公司。 

中華徵信所之資訊服務系統,不但完整掌握台灣與大陸的工商資料、整合了個人與公司的信用資訊,憑藉此一優勢協助金融與商業機構進行風險評估、預防債務累積、降低交易成本與投資風險、及加速市場開拓。具備顧客與商業夥伴簡要清晰的信用歷史紀錄,為機構在授予貿易信用、拯救公司財務危機或增加企業獲利的過程中,提供有力的信用狀況評估。 

有鑑於亞洲經濟與金融系統的特殊性,中華徵信所之徵信系統在與CRIF在亞洲區既有的進階企業解決方案結合後,將促使信貸與決策程序變得更快、更有效率,擴大信貸在經濟體內的流通來加速信貸的取得,進而提升責任借貸與企業的發展。 

中華徵信所100多位有經驗的專家保證持續提升徵信與專業顧問服務的深度與廣度,協助客戶有效地執行信用管理以及衡量、降低企業風險。目前中華徵信所亦提供顧客資料庫,以期能滿足客戶的即時需求。每年出版的《台灣地區大型企業排名TOP5000》及《集團企業研究》至今仍是公司行號在台灣做生意與工商界合作的參考寶典。 

「我們誠摯地迎接如同中華徵信所及其傑出的專業團隊一般,有實力的公司加入CRIF的家庭。」CRIF總經理兼執行長Carlo Gherardi繼續說:「中華徵信所將擁有許多新的成長機會與可能,為台灣以及世界上的客戶開發更多服務的項目。此外,CRIF與中華徵信所的結合,將能確保我們在大中國及亞洲地區的客戶更高附加價值的服務,並提供更有效率的支援來協助企業發展成功。」 

中華徵信所總經理張大為表示:「對於已經成立55年之久的中華徵信所而言,我們不斷致力於創新以隨時跟進日趨卓越的世界水準。在技術上,我們已更新資訊設備及作業方式;而在心態上,我們將自己定位為「B型企業(Benefit Corporation)」,在各利害關係人中追求平衡。此次的收購對中華徵信所無疑是一大契機,能夠在CRIF的集團下發揮綜效,並為中華徵信所、CRIF及我們的客戶創造三贏的局面。」
