Now including Financial Payment Data

Addition of financial data radically improves credit decision making insight for eligible, contributing businesses of all sizes.

Extending credit to new and micro businesses just got easier

Allentown PA, May 15, 2018

Creditsafe, the world's leading provider of global business intelligence, has today announced enhancements to its U.S. credit information product portfolio with access to financial trade payment data. This information provides significantly increased insight into the credit and financial performance of businesses across the nation. The payment data includes trade line information from business leases, commercial credit cards and term loans that will enable businesses to make better, more informed decisions.

Financial Data

"While business credit reports and scores are traditionally put together using a variety of public and private information covering business demographics and company-to-company trade payment data, the addition of payment data showing not just how a business pays its bills, but how it pays its term loans, commercial cards and other debts takes our reports to another level. To be honest, any credit manager or business owner who makes a credit granting decision without viewing this data first is actually cheating themselves and their business by not taking the opportunity to see the whole picture."

CEO of Creditsafe Asia and Americas

Creditsafe has the ability to source over $220 billion in trade from banks, credit card companies and credit unions. In addition to having this data within new sections on a business's credit report, this data can be leveraged by Creditsafe customers to enhance their credit algorithms to deliver even higher levels of predictability.

"Creditsafe has built its reputation and success on doing things differently. We are committed to changing the way business information is used and by adding in this payment data to our U.S. offering we are continuing to do just that and to provide American businesses with a compelling option. Our Analysis shows that a typical user will now have the added benefit of seeing financial payment data on over 40% of previously 'thin credit file' companies. We believe this increase in data availability is a complete game-changer."

Details of closed accounts are included to provide a historical perspective to show if a business has a poor track record on inactive accounts.
