What Makes Credit Reports So Useful?

Credit reports are one of the most useful and insightful tools when assessing companies, managing risk or background checking for due diligence and they're one of our most popular reports. Whether its for a quick glance at the risk rating or a full deep dive of the financials or ownership or risk.

What Are Credit Reports?

Despite the name, they're not all just about credit. Credit reports contain a wealth of data for so many applications, from pre-screening to AML. All company and financial information is pulled from official company documents so you don't have to trail through hundreds of pages of data. As well as this, intelligent insights like credit score/limit and analyst insights are included to paint an accurate and intuitive picture of the state of a company.

Why Should You Use Credit Reports?

If you wish to reduce your exposure to problem payers or have greater insight on any company in these uncertain times credit reports are highly predictive. In seconds, it gives you a great feel for a company. Not just for credit, but so much more for your sales, legal, procurement and KYC teams.
