The credit card company will update the credit bureaus to show that it is settled. Sometimes that may take a month to do, so be patient. If it does not get updated, then dispute the account as the information on it would not be correct. Not much you can do beyond that, you could try to send "Goodwill Letters" to the company requesting that they remove it from your reports, but it would be doubtful that they would, especially since you did not pay the full amount owed.
