Credit Processing

Evaluating the credit worthiness of our customers is an important task and one that the ATAS Credit Department handles with ease. They go beyond reviewing the initial credit application and credit report. Successful credit management requires ongoing monitoring and maintenance - the health of a business can change quickly.

New Accounts

  • Sales staff will call or e-mail the Credit Manager with the new account’s company name, address, phone number and e-mail of account’s contact
  • Credit investigation begins within 24 hours of receiving the credit application
  • Allow a minimum of three days to process the application
