Explore how Pioneer Balloon lowered their credit insurance costs with Creditsafe


Founded in 1918 in Wichita, KS, Pioneer Ballon (SAFE# US86867542) manufactures latex and Microfoil balloons.

In a conversation with their Credit Strategies Manager, Chris Birdwell, he explained how they were inconsistently able to obtain data on smaller businesses which was slowing down their ability to onboard new customers with commercial credit. Additionally, he was frustrated with the high costs of international reports from his previous provider.

Bad data limited ability to extend credit

Value was lacking from previous provider

High Costs of international reports


To maximize the value Pioneer Ballon could get from our tools, we set Chris up with access to our self-service platform that would let him run unlimited reports on the small businesses in our network as well as access to our global database of quality and affordable business credit reports

In addition, Creditsafe is constantly iterating on it's tools to avoid complacency and provide greater service and value to our customers.

There are a lot of credit reporting companies offering their own unique strengths and weaknesses.
