Credit insurance provides information and security to help us move into new markets.
Rashi Peripherals is one of India’s leading IT distributors with a track record spanning nearly 30 years. Navin Agarwal, Head of Accounts and Finance at Rashi Peripherals describes our work as an integral part of their own credit control processes.
The primary business aim of Rashi Peripherals is to maintain business growth and expand the reach of the 51 branch offices and service centres throughout India. Navin Agarwal, Head of Accounts and Finance, explains how working with Atradius and its insurance partner in India provides an important aspect of the company’s wider growth plans. “Credit insurance provides information and security to help us move into new markets”, he says. “We always evaluate new customers, but the fact that Atradius and its insurance partner in India also does it gives us confidence to go after new customers.”
We began working with Rashi Peripherals in 2014. “We chose Atradius and its insurance partner in India as a partner because they are a market leader in the credit insurance sector”, says Navin Agarwal. “Over the last few years we have built up good relations with the Atradius and its insurance partner in India team and broker. They understand our business and our market,” he adds. Our locally based team, Atradius India Credit Management Services, provides Rashi Peripherals with credit management services and debt collection support.
The company enjoys impressive success across the nation. In addition to a compound annual growth rate of 25%, Rashi Peripherals has won many distributor awards from companies such as Logitech, Intel, Lenovo and many more. Magazines like DT and CRN named Rashi Peripherals as the No.1 Value Added IT Distributor in India. Navin Agarwal explains their success is thanks in part to their strong financial systems underscored by rigorous and transparent credit controls. He says: “Atradius and its insurance partner in India effectively helps us to evaluate our customers twice. We are very proactive and make sure we conduct due diligence on all of our customers.
Atradius and its insurance partner in India also do this as part of the process for agreeing credit limits. “In addition to being a core requirement of our business processes as directed by our Board, the credit insurance supports our financial controls and helps us minimise the risk of debtors and helps our company to grow and stay healthy. We are a successful business with good credit control.”
The company’s robust financial practices can be seen in their recent adoption of the new GST standard. Rashi Peripherals was one of the first organisations in India to adopt the operational systems needed for the new GST tax system. As a digital business with all sales and purchase transactions recorded in a digital format, the company’s internal financial systems were able to complete a smooth migration to GST.
And, as Rashi Peripherals Director Krishna Choudary told Varinda Magazine: “We also took care of our partners and helped them in their business transition. We provided education for them for GST implementation and supported them in all aspects.”
