Bureau van Dijk rolled out the latest set of enhancements to its Orbis company research and financial analysis platform. Orbis was re-platformed last year and given a modern user interface. New features include a document ordering module, improved peer reporting, and enhanced customization. The new document ordering module assists with KYC/AML and company research by delivering original images of business documents, such as certificates of incorporation, shareholders’ details, and annual reports. The new module was built in partnership with aRMadillo (FKA RM Online) and delivers reports “usually within an hour.” Users can even order reports for companies not found in the Orbis database.
Customization features include calculated variables which can be shared across the account group, chapters, and classifications.
“The new interface arranges company reports into “books” that are further organised into “chapters”, that contain related information,” said CMO Louise Green. “This feature lets you create your own customised chapters, which could include: your company logo or other images; widgets from the profile page; worksheets with selected financials; and any of your own fields that you have imported into Orbis.”
Custom classifications allow users to map their own industry and geographic codes to ORBIS data.
Bureau van Dijk recently released a 2:33 demo of seven key workflow improvements that were implemented in last year’s release:
- Favorite Search Criteria
- Instant Currency Switch
- Alert Management and Quick Alerting
- Quick View of a Company
- Random Sorting and Sampling
- Pivot Analysis
- Corporate Ownership Explorer
The Orbis database, which is available for Orbis financial analysis, MINT sales intelligence, and Catalyst workflow product lines, now spans 220 million companies across 200 countries.
