UK-based Sales and Risk Intelligence vendor Global Database is launching company credit checks for nineteen countries. Credit data is gathered via APIs from leading regional European providers of company and credit data.
The new reports include credit scores and limits; payments and inquiries; mortgages, charges, and county court judgments; directors and shareholders; group structures; trading addresses; five-year financials; key performance indicators and ratios; credit score and limit histories; company identifiers (e.g. registration numbers, tax ids, tradestyles), year incorporated; auditor; and document filings.
US data includes UCC (liens), bankruptcies, and payment histories.
Coverage currently spans
- Americas: The United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil
- Europe: The United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Benelux, Ireland, and the Nordics
- Asia: Japan, Thailand, Vietnam
Credit reports are available for all registered companies in the supported countries. What’s more, coverage will grow rapidly with plans to support 120 countries by the end of the year with “instantly available credit reports.”
“By the end of Q1, we will have a credit report for every single country, including offline reports in areas where company information is much more difficult to get. Essentially, a client will make a fresh investigation request, and our partners will collect this information from on the ground sources.”Global Database Managing Director Nicolae Buldumac
“We now offer a unified solution to our customers where they can identify their customers, get contact information for key executives, and run due diligence checks on new suppliers,” wrote Buldumac.
Buldumac emphasized that the Global Database platform supports multiple global departments. “All this information is available in one single license, and this will save cost for many companies, as very often you need to pay a license for sales and marketing solution and another license for compliance. Also, not many companies offer such information globally, and this is where we have a USP.”
During Q3, Global Database onboarded Amazon, Vodafone, WeWork, Dyson, and the Italian Trade Agency. Global Database’s business has increased during the pandemic as firms look for more clients, require tools for assessing business risk, and source digital sales and marketing solutions in the absence of event marketing.
The credit risk solution will be offered both as a bundle with the existing sales and marketing platform and as a standalone product. Pricing will depend on volume and countries, with discounts available for bundled subscriptions.
Global Database has sales and support offices in the UK and Moldova.
