Let’s walk you through our products and the value we create with them.



DUD Cheque otherwise known as dishonoured cheque is a cheque that a bank declines to pay (“honour”). There are a number of reasons why a bank would refuse to honour a cheque. And the most common reason is usually non-sufficient funds (NSF). This indicates that there are insufficient cleared funds in the account on which the cheque was drawn.

A DUD CHEQUE is popularly known in Nigeria as “bounced cheque”. It usually reflects an account in debit, or one where the credit balance is lower than the amount indicated on the cheque.  It is an empty cheque that has no monetary value as no money can pass through it. Therefore, a dud cheque paid into a bank account is not only an embarrassment to the payee and bank but also a crime.

Central Bank of Nigeria’s regulatory directive through a circular dated June 28th 2016, directed all banks to implement measures to dissuade the issuance of dud cheques. CreditRegistry, Nigeria’s pioneer and largest credit bureau has deployed our Dud-Cheque Information Manager (DIM). DIM helps your bank to meet the CBN requirements to prevent serial dud-cheque issuers from accessing the clearing system and/or credit.


Our PMR is a monitoring report that allows an institution to see its portfolio exposure details across the industry. To sum up, our portfolio monitoring report will enable creditors to accomplish the following:

  • Dimension and monitor portfolio risk exposures of existing customers with external credit facilities
  • Provide credit line marketing and cross-selling opportunities that increase revenues
  • Enhance performance of the risk management operations and reduce defaults and losses
  • Dramatically increase odds of collection
  • It allows the institution to know which customer to Mind, Manage, Mitigate and Market.


CreditRegistry’s Skip Tracing Report provides a practical way to go about debt recovery. The Skip tracing report is a tool to trace debtors who cannot be reached. It may be because they have moved from their residential address and possibly changed phone numbers. However, with this tool, you get additional details of the debtors other than the details the company currently has on its records. In effect, it gathers additional information from other subscribers on the bureau to locate a borrower that has otherwise skipped (i.e. no longer accessible through current contact information on your company file). The effectiveness of a recovery process is usually dependent on the ability to track down debtors to their current contact details such as home address, office address, phone number etc.


Our Campaign Report enables institutions to determine which customers in a portfolio of prospects are creditworthy. This service helps institutions find out from the bureau, how credit worthy their existing customers are. As a result, institutions increase profitability, reduce turnaround time, and increase its consumer retail lending portfolio

The report includes a qualified list of prospects based on your specified criteria. Also, the additional information in the campaign report can be ranked with metrics such as performance status, SMARTScores, balances, credit limits, account types etc.
