How the DUNSRight™ process works
'Global Data Collection' brings together data from over 30,000 sources worldwide. Our database contains over 400+ million company records.
Match & integrate data
We integrate the data into our database through Entity Matching, which produces a single picture of the correct business entity.
We apply the D-U-N-S® Number as a unique means of identifying and tracking a business globally through every step in the life and activity of the business.
Identify related businesses
We use Corporate Linkage to enable our customers to view their total risk or opportunity across related businesses.
Add predictive modelling
Finally, our Predictive Indicators use statistical analysis to rate a business’ past performance and to indicate how likely the business is to perform that same way in the future.
