For many industries, knowing who you want to do business with is not always as easy as running a D&B report. To begin with, automated business background check reports like those often don’t include a wide variety of information that you might want to know before doing business with them. They are great for the obvious business background check elements: bankruptcy, liens and other basic public record data that would make you think twice. What these searches are not: full blown business background checks. How big is the company really? Who are the owners, what is their litigation history, what are their clients and past employees saying about them online? These and many other elements of our business background checks provide you with a detailed understanding of who you are about to extend credit to, represent you as a supplier and who you are now associated with. Any good risk manager would want to know as much as possible through diligent business background check or vendor and contractor screening before discussing a new business relationship.
