Know-it is a cloud-based credit management platform. Every business in the UK will practice some form of credit management process. It is this need and the fact that so many companies do not have the time or resource to do all of these in the one place, that Know-it was developed.
We partner with leading credit agencies such as Graydon and data credit bureau and official company sites such as Companies House and The London and Edinburgh Gazette. We also provide integrations with the leading accountancy software packages such as Xero, Sage, QuickBooks and FreeAgent. These partners provide us with essential real-time credit information that will help your business avoid fraud, upload your sales and purchase ledger and get credit information on the companies that you do business with. In turn, Know-it provides you with a platform that brings it all together.
The Know-it platform will ensure people have a robust credit management process no matter the size or industry. We want to help businesses save money on subscriptions on multiple platforms or credit referencing services. Know-it removes the need to subscribe to several paid for services and removes the need of having to check multiple websites daily to receive insight into their customers financial well-being. We believe that by streamlining this process and employing automation, we can reduce monotonous tasks for credit controllers and highlight any areas of concern.

Know-it was founded in 2019 by Lynne Darcey Quigley who has worked within the credit management industry for over 25 years and is the founder of Darcey Quigley & Co, one of the UK’s leading credit management agencies. Know-it was created to try and mitigate credit risks and streamline the credit control process by enabling users to check-it, chase-it and collect-it all in one place.
The Know-it platform will ensure businesses have a robust credit management process regardless the size or industry. We want to help businesses save money on subscriptions on multiple platforms and credit referencing services. We also believe that the SME should have the same access to these tools as large PLC’s do. Balancing the playing field!
The innovation is taking several different processes and competitor services bringing them all into the one easy to use platform under one subscription. By using automation and monitoring it delivers financial insights to help you mitigate credit risk and improve cashflow. Our monitoring and credit management information is available to the enterprise clients through a REST API which can be integrated into their own accountancy platform or CRM.
Two core areas to what we do at Know-it. Technology: we use technology to its fullest by automating as many processes as possible. We also use technology to seamlessly integrate with your accountancy software to ensure seamless transition of data and insight into the platform. 25 years of credit management experience has been used to design a robust credit management platform.
We are currently in the advanced BETA test group stage of development of the Know-it platform with a soft launch due April 2021.
