Selection Process

Reduce your risk with actionable data that makes customer and supplier selection fast and efficient.

Identify a pool of potential suppliers or customers

Search for companies that meet your criteria using the Data Search tool or by delving into our digitised, searchable library of annual reports filed at Companies House using our SearCHeD tool. This enables you to filter by industry sector, region, company size and risk profile, or for particular words or phrases.

Pre-qualify leads

Help your sales team pre-qualify leads, with seamless Salesforce integration, and accurate and real-time information that helps take the guesswork out of the sales lead qualification process.

Carry out in-depth individual reviews

Review candidates thoroughly as part of an RFI, RFP, credit risk or manual underwriting process and verify submission information, ownership structure and financial health scores using tools such as H-Score® and Aphrodite®.

Identify potential red flags

Check filing dates and name changes held at Companies House and cross reference company directors using our Aphrodite® tool. Ensure directors of companies you want to work with don’t have a hidden history of insolvent companies or disqualifications, and use our easy-to-understand group structure layout to get the full picture on the companies you’re thinking of doing business with.

Bulk review a list of potential customers or suppliers

Analyse the overall risk profile of a group of businesses using the Portfolio Overview tool. You can segment the list using H-Score®, industry, region and size. Our Data Search can be used for a more detailed segmentation of the portfolio, such as change in scores over time.

Segmentation and alerts

Manage your supplier or client list using the Portfolio tool. Set up customisable email alerts for changes in circumstances that may affect your customer’s ability to pay or a supplier’s ability to complete a contract. Alerts on Notice of Intention to Appoint Administrator and Unadvertised Winding-Up Petitions will be available from July 2021.

Use the Portfolio Overview tool to drill-down into critical areas of risk and opportunity in your portfolios.

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.
