The patented Process, DUNSRight™ is the key differentiator and guarantees compliance with international standards.

Decision support indicators/scores

Paydex

The exclusive international indicator on payment behaviour

The exclusive international indicator on payment behaviour Altares offers 2 key indicators, the Paydex and the FPI (Frequency Payment Index) to evaluate the payment attitude of a company or a public organization, in order to help you in your decision making when entering into a relationship or pursuing it.

Frequency Payment indicators (FPI)

Do you want to protect yourself against the accumulation of late payments?

Altares has developed the Frequency Payment Indicators (FPI), reactive alerts that signal the first payment difficulties of a company. The IPFs are composed of 2 indicators that precisely qualify the probability of late payment of a company towards its suppliers.

Survival score

Evaluate the probability that a company in safeguard or receivership will still be active in 6, 12, 24 and 36 months

After filing for bankruptcy with the court, a company in financial difficulty is subject to :
Or a judgment of safeguard or legal redress; a period of observation opens during which the company will continue its activity to try to find a positive outcome (adoption of a plan) and thus avoid the conversion into liquidation.
Either an opening of judicial liquidation or an assignment plan (partial or total).

Failure score

Anticipate failure

The Failure Score corresponds to a risk rate - the probability of entering into collective proceedings (Safeguard, receivership and judicial liquidation) over a twelve month period.

The DunTrade Program

A single objective: An objective view of the financial health of companies

The DunTrade ® program is a factual observation of the payment reality in which the members of the D&B global network participate, through a proprietary late payment collection and analysis program.

Appetence score (Sales & Marketing)

Prioritize your prospecting actions

The appetence score reflects the probability that a prospect is interested in the solutions you offer and will become a customer. It is based on the analysis of your portfolio (look alike) to determine more or less attractive profiles. It allows marketing teams to prioritize their campaign and sales people to prioritize their canvassing.

And what are your challenges on the customer side?
