The Dun & Bradstreet D‑U‑N‑S Number is a unique nine-digit identifier for businesses. This number is assigned once our patented identity resolution process, part of our DUNSRight™ methodology, identifies a company as being unique from any other in the Dun & Bradstreet Data Cloud. D‑U‑N‑S Numbers are often referenced by lenders and potential business partners to help predict the reliability and/or financial stability of the company in question. The D‑U‑N‑S Number also enables identification of relationships between corporate entities (hierarchies and linkages).
The global nature of our Data Cloud is our unique selling point. Even if you are doing business in one geography today, it is likely you will grow across borders or engage with stakeholders in other regions, making access to global data and analytics an essential component for high performing businesses of all sizes.
