Used globally, DUNSRight™ is the process in which data are collected, aggregated, edited and verified daily from thousands of sources.
The result is high-quality information which customers can use confidently as a basis for making important business decisions. D&B's ability to convert an enormous volume of data into reliable and consistent business information is what distinguishes D&B from its competitors.
How does the DUNSRight™ process work?
The basis of DUNSRight™ is Quality Assurance which includes more than 2,000 separate automated checks, as well as many manual checks, to ensure that D&B's data meet the highest quality requirements.
- Global Data Collection combines data from various sources worldwide.
- We integrate the data in our database through our patented Entity Matching, which produces a single, accurate picture of each company.
- We then apply the D-U-N-S® Number as a unique method of globally identifying and tracking a business through every stage of its existence.
- With Corporate Linkage customers have a complete picture of all the risks and opportunities in a corporate group structure.
- Finally, statistical analyses are used to calculate Predictive Indicators. These are used to estimate a business's future performance on the basis of the available information and its past performance.
What is the outcome of this comprehensive DUNSRight™ process? It provides high-quality business information embedded in the solutions that customers rely on from D&B.
