LexisNexis Expands Its D&B Content

LexisNexis has expanded its collection of D&B content with the addition of the enhanced D&B Business Information Report and the Comprehensive Report, including new visual graphics, additional coverage of U.S. businesses, and expanded D&B PAYDEX Information. Aside from D&B, LexisNexis is currently the only provider to offer access to this information, which is available via its and services.

The enhanced Business Information Report covers an additional 5 million new U.S. businesses (a 38 percent increase since 2001), accesses more than 375 million payment experiences to determine credit scores for risk assessment, provides key business ratios and industry norms that measure the relationship between financial values in a company's balance sheet and income statement offering for evaluating the performance and stability of a business, and more.

The Comprehensive Report is used to track a company's history and where it is headed. Enhancements to this report include supporting commentary and visuals to show what the scores mean, yearly payment trend graphs and charts and analysis that show payment trends to suppliers and risk analysis, and corporate family structure to identify business background, provide operational overview, and assess risk.

Both reports are enhanced with corporate family links that list U.S. and global parent companies, branches, subsidiaries, and affiliated companies; expanded D&B PAYDEX information that provides a dollar-weighted, 3-month view of how a business has paid its creditors; new payment trend profiles; and the latest North American Industry Classification (NAIC) codes.
