Trade Partner Spotlight

“Two years ago we became a Trade provider with Dun & Bradstreet. At first we were reluctant to share our client information with D&B. D&B informed us they hold this information with the strictest of confidence and there were ways we could benefit from sharing this information. We decided to give it a try. After sharing our information, D&B identified several of our customers who were paying us promptly, had requested extended credit terms, but discovered they were not paying their other suppliers. We also identified some traits of our best customers, and used this information to seek out new customers…of which we just closed a $500k sale.” – Sr. VP Collections, U.S. Auto Manufacturing
"I am very pleased with Dun & Bradstreet Trade Exchange. I have found it very easy to transfer information to Dun & Bradstreet. I note on all invoices that we "report all receivables to Dun & Bradstreet". It is amazing how customers who had procrastinated mailing in payment now pay within 2 weeks normally. Most businesses that want to stay on top do not want anything negative on their Dun & Bradstreet account and make sure payment is made promptly to ensure their credit standing is very good." – Accounts Receivable Specialist
