Why Use Business Credit Reports?

Business credit reports provide a quick and easy to assess credit for a potential customer or supplier before granting credit or setting credit limits.

If you rely on credit applications, you may not be getting a complete picture of your customers’ and suppliers’ financial health. Businesses that are facing financial difficulties often keep some accounts current while others are delinquent. In fact, around 98% of businesses that fill out credit applications only list accounts where they are in good standing. So, you could spend hours or days calling references and not have accurate information.

Business credit reports provide an independent analysis of all tradelines and credit use. You will get a more complete picture of a company’s financial history along with a predictive analysis of risk in the future.
