Establish credibility with lenders

The DUNS Number is a unique nine-digit identification sequence which provides unique identifiers of single business entities, while linking corporate family structures together.

The D&B DUNS numbering system is a widely recognised standard for identifying businesses among thousands of companies, marketplaces and regulatory entities. Companies worldwide use the DUNS Number to link information about suppliers, customers and trading partners, providing a more complete picture of the risk and opportunity in their business relationships.

No other organisation has the capacity to identify, verify, and inter-relate businesses to find new customers, reduce credit exposure, generate vendor savings, and prevent fraud.

Applying DUNS Numbers to your internal files can help you:

  • Identify risk exposure and highlight cross-selling opportunities within the same corporate family group
  • Eliminate duplicate file entries and build your own value-added customer and supplier information warehouses
  • Streamline your e-commerce transactions and simplify communications
  • Integrate your internal systems by linking payables/receivables and tracking business documentation to the business entity and location level
  • Reduce operating costs by linking interrelated suppliers and leverage this knowledge to increase purchasing power
  • Uncover revenue opportunities by identifying prospects
  • Improve customer service by linking related customer accounts to support a "one-customer" view.

What's the value of a DUNS Number?

By embedding the DUNS Number at the core of your global marketing, credit and purchasing transactions, you can take data you already have and turn it into powerful business information. By combining your company's internal data with D&B's database and other marketplace information you can create a value-added information source within your own organisation.

In database marketing applications the DUNS Number allows customers to quantify how much business they are already doing within a market sector or corporate family structure to enable more effective planning of new sales and marketing activities.
