Where's the Royal Road in Credit?

by Allen Vickers, CCE, A & K Railroad Materials, Inc.

Five hundred years before Christ, the Persian King Darius the Great, built a magnificent road to facilitate rapid communication throughout his vast kingdom. Messengers on horseback could cover unimaginable distances, traveling up to 1,677 miles in a week! The Persian couriers were so remarkable, it caused a Greek historian, Herodotus to note, "Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor darkness of night prevents these couriers from completing their designated stages with utmost speed." Years later this memorable description became the standard, or the creed, for the U.S. Postal Service.

The Royal Road was such a remarkable improvement in travel that it was copied by the Romans as a way to make transportation more efficient throughout their empire. It also became the basis for a well known quote when King Ptolemy asked Euclid for an easier way of learning mathematics. Euclid replied, "There is no Royal Road to geometry." View full article

Creative Credit Policies in an Economic Downturn

by Caryl Nielsen, CBF, Valley Glass Corp

The construction industry, like many others, has been hit hard with the economic down turn. The bottom falling out of the construction industry has made us realize that our trade is not a necessity, but a luxury that most people can live without or put off indefinitely. We find ourselves asking different types of questions like "How can we" instead of "Who should we."

Our education and experience tell us that as creditors and collectors, we can't have a lenient credit and collection policy. Credit policies and procedures should be stringent and well researched.There must be a careful evaluation of a company's ability to pay back the amount of credit we have entrusted to them. Collection policy should enforce the terms of the extension of credit as set forth in our credit policy. If you choose to be lenient in one, you should be very stringent in the other. This is a must to be successful. View full article
