Testimonials

See what our members are saying about us
"I have been a SICA member for over 25 years and I personally would be lost if I could not log on each morning and find out the most current, accurate information on my customers. The Sica Staff is the most professional and helpful team you will ever work with. They go beyond the call of duty. If you have a problem or have heard of a rumor, they will confidentially and discreetly investigate. No question is ever stupid or shouldn't be asked. The best part of our job is that we get to be friends with our competitors. All competing firms exchange ledger information because credit managers need all the knowledge and experience they can get on accounts to make a good credit decision and we all treat the information shared as a privilege and confidential matter."
"Both as an unparalleled tech-based knowledge center and for seasoned industry insight, SICA makes my risk management work far easier."
