Every day we collect, analyze and structure huge amounts of financial data. Thanks to our patented quality processes and smart algorithms, we can inform you about the financial health of your customer, prospect, partner or supplier.
Although each market worldwide has its own risk scores and ratings, Overall Business Risk uses data available locally to create a globally consistent picture that can be used to compare companies in different countries.
D&B's maximum credit shows the total value of goods and/or services that the average creditor should have outstanding at one time. This limit is calculated based on organization size, industry (SIC) and risk factor.
The D&B Failure Score makes risks visible and is based on
the largest possible amount of trade information. This score
refines the risk scale from 1 to 4 of the D&B Rating to a more
refined scale from 1 to 100. The higher the D&B Failure Score,
the healthier the status of that company.
The D&B failure score is dynamic, meaning that it is recalculated every time we collect a new piece of information
about an origination, or when information changes.
Through the Dun-Trade® Program, D&B annually collects
millions of payment experiences from companies in order to
be able to analyze the payment behavior. The result of this
analysis is shown in the D&B Paydex®, which indicates how
fast a company pays its invoices. Every day, thousands of
current payment experiences are added to the database. This
gives the Paydex® rating a very up-to-date insight into the
payment behavior of your customers, prospects and suppliers.
It has been shown that, twelve months before the bankruptcy
decision, 75% of the bankrupt companies had a D&B ‘Risk
Factor 4’. The Risk Factor warns you at an early stage about
possible problems and gives you plenty of opportunity to adjust
your terms and conditions accordingly in order to avoid losses.
The D&B Rating consists of two parts, namely the ‘financial
strength’ code (based on the net equity) and the ‘Risk
factor’ to reflect the risk, when you start doing business
with a company. The Risk Factor varies from 1 (minimum risk:
continue the transaction) to 4 (significant risk: only do
business on a secured basis). This risk indicator is unique
in the world of credit.
