How does Data Blocks works ?

Tailor our data
to meet
your needs

Build as many levels of data as you want using blocks

Data Blocks

A data block is a logical and thematic grouping of data from the global D&B database.

  • Simple, modern and flexible integration method
  • Meet all your challenges by assembling blocks for customized data
  • Use Direct+ monitoring to keep all your applications up-to-date

Data Levels

Levels are segmented views of data blocks to meet specific customer content needs.

  • Up to 5 levels available per block
  • Access to higher levels automatically gives you access to lower levels

Data Blocks & D-U-N-S Number

When you put the D-U-N-S Number at the heart of your business, you gain access to a world of data.
