Dun & Bradstreet Introduces Credit Scoring Solution

Dun & Bradstreet this week launched a solution that combines credit scoring and credit limit analysis to help customers make decisions.

D&B (DNB) Credit Express delivers customized reports via a customer's intranet for multi-user access. For credit managers and sales representatives, inquiries and answers to business issues can now be accessed through a corporate intranet.

D&B Credit Express also facilitates B2B electronic commerce by providing credit information needed by online buyers to manage credit risk. Firms such as Enermetrix.com, a leader in Internet commerce for energy, utilize D&B credit information to provide secure transactions for clients of their online marketplace. By linking directly to a company's B2B exchange server, D&B Credit Express delivers customer-defined credit limit decisions in real-time, as buyers and sellers conduct transactions over the Internet.

"The D&B Credit Express solution provides our suppliers with the information they need to evaluate counter party risk and allows them to confidently offer the best prices while at the same time helping them manage that risk," said James Daly, executive vice president of exchange operations for Enermetrix.com.

D&B Credit Express is immediately available in a three-tier pricing plan. Pricing is based on the complexity and depth of data utilized in the scoring and analytical decision processes. D&B Credit Express requires a Windows NT Web server working with a SQL database server.
