The Growth of Credit Information: A History of UAPT-Infolink by C.McNeil Greig
For anyone interested in organizational development since the Industrial Revolution, and for those involved in the financial world, The Growth of Credit Information will provide a wealth of material which has very rarely been made available in this way before. McNeil Greig provides a unique view of the last of the Trade Protection Societies - the origins of which were in the Industrial Revolution. It traces the development of what was to become the largest of these co-operative societies, now known as UAPT-Infolink, from its inception as an informal group of traders to one of the UK's leading information technology companies 150 years later. The book provides a fascinating reflection of the changing business environment of the last 100 years, during which the company has survived takeover bids, fraud, internal revolution, two wars, massive computerization, and finally privatization.
