How to manage the largest database in the world? We don't do this alone, of course. Working with our partners around the world, we provide global data coverage, but with local depth. But more importantly, together we present our data in a consistent manner through our quality process.
Dun & Bradstreet's extensive international partner network enables us to maintain reliable business information on more than 440 million business records worldwide, performing approximately 5 million updates daily. The Dun & Bradstreet Worldwide Network (WWN) is an alliance of Dun & Bradstreet and business information providers across 220 countries. Each partner represents one or more local regions.
Participation in the Dun & Bradstreet Global Network symbolizes participation in the world's leading business information network. Companies participate in the global network through direct ownership of Dun & Bradstreet markets, joint ventures and partners.
The D&B Worldwide Network facilitates the exchange of commercial credit experiences by enabling a network of data providers to share accounts receivable information with the business community. With the DunTrade program, thousands of companies around the world provide us with their commercial payment information. We process over 1.5 billion business experiences each year. This information, which is also included in our analyses, allows our clients to make more informed commercial credit decisions, reduce the number of days in arrears and limit the risk of bad debts. Participation in the DunTrade program is free, and it's a great way to let your customers know that you expect to get paid quickly. Are you interested?
