Why Are We Here?

ICE was the first to put industry credit groups on the Internet. Since its establishment in 1997, ICE remains an innovative force in the credit exchange industry, constantly looking to provide its members with services that transform the way they do their job.

We knew from the beginning that to make better credit decisions, you need useful data. While our competitors are locked into a never-ending battle for your data, we focused our attention on building the tools our members wanted to take their credit department to the next level.

The value of ICE comes from the tools we create for your credit team
to make confident decisions.
