Accountancy

Explore potential business opportunities while balancing your exposure to risk.

Undertake forensic analysis

Use the platform to drill down and interrogate the reasons underlying our scores. Explainability is a key component of our H-Score®, TextScore® and CountryScore tools and a driving force behind our director matching Aphrodite® tool.

Identify companies with a specific profile

Use the Search Engine to identify business development opportunities, such as companies showing signs of potential distress and a target for restructuring services, or companies that are growing rapidly and outgrowing their current accountancy firm.

Save time with research tools

Use SearCHeD to uncover insights contained within annual accounts filed at Companies House. Using our digitised and searchable archive of accounts documents, search for key terms such as adoption of the latest accounting principles, or the use of financial instruments such as supply chain finance.

Win new business

Discover new business opportunities for your turnaround teams using our Search Engine to target companies that are showing early signs of distress.

Our Service

We help our clients manage their strategic business relationships, giving them scores that look at a medium-term forecast, and the tools to allow them to look even further into the future.

Explainable

We provide ‘white box’ scores, which allow you to make evidence-based decisions and justify these to key stakeholders in your organisation.

Interactive

Being able to model scenarios and understand ever-changing risk has never been more important. We give you the tools to do that.

Time-Saving

With tools like Aphrodite®, SearCHeD, TextScore® and our Furlough data matching, we allow you to investigate risks thoroughly in minutes.

Why choose Company Watch?

As a financial analytics company, our risk analysis and data modelling platform provides intelligent and actionable insights, giving you an unbeatable edge when it comes to managing risk.

Unlike a traditional credit reference agency, we have the ability to map medium to long-term risk as well as short-term risk. As a result, you can accurately predict financial risks before they become financial losses.
