ERN Offers Unique Servicing For Israeli Check Market

ERN Israel LogoERN Israel, founded by Rony Natanzon in 2001, has developed a unique method of servicing the outstanding check market in Israel. Currently the leading company in its field, ERN’s proprietary risk management systems allow its customer merchants the ability to accept checks without fear of return, thus increasing sales and eliminating risk for the business owner.

Israel’s Check Market
According to the figures of The Bank of Israel, the annual volume of checks turnover in Israel, totals more than NIS 905 Billion, including more than NIS 99 Billion in the consumer market. According to The Central Bureau of Statistics and other publications, 14% of adults use checks and this percentage is even higher in Israel’s periphery.

Guaranteed Payment of Checks
Businesses need to increase sales, to acquire new customers and to grow.
This requires the business to “go along with the customer” in any way possible, including the option of paying for the product or service in any form of payment chosen. In order to do so, and to avoid unnecessary financial risks (such as cash flow problems, collections and bad debt), thousands of businesses in Israel have joined the services of guaranteed check payment offered by ERN.

The company, using its unique databases and the most advanced risk management systems in the country, allows businesses to accept checks that were approved by ERN, without any fear. Thus, ERN assumes all financial risks in respect of those transactions and reimbursing their merchant customers if the checks return unpaid.
