(PRWEB) November 13, 2012
Creditsafe, Europe’s most-used supplier of online company credit reports, has officially launched its U.S. operations and aims to revolutionize the American credit-report market, offering the world’s largest company-credit database and significant cost-savings against established U.S. providers. Creditsafe USA President Matthew Debbage made the announcement today.
With its U.S. launch, Creditsafe (http://www.creditsafe.com) aims to replicate the success of its business in Europe, where five Creditsafe reports are downloaded every second from its company-credit database. Launched in Norway in 1997, the privately-owned company has grown rapidly over the past few years to include offices in the U.K., Germany, France, Sweden, Ireland, Belgium and the Netherlands, employing over 500 people and serving more than 50,000 customers worldwide.
“Creditsafe is looking to increase the number of U.S. companies that benefit from company credit reports by providing superior data in an easy-to-use format at significant savings,” Debbage said. “By offering unlimited access for an annual fee so companies never have to worry about how much a report costs, we make business information accessible to both new and previous users of company credit reports. We have developed a genuinely different service that will become essential in the U.S. market, delivering significant business benefits to U.S. companies trading nationally and internationally.”
Creditsafe already has data on 47 million U.S. businesses, and its American customers have access to 67 million records for European companies as well. The company offers high-quality reports that are easy to use for the non-specialist but contain all the business data and information an expert user needs. Approximately 50 percent of Creditsafe’s new customers were not previous users of company-credit reference reports. An annual subscription to the Creditsafe service gives customers unlimited access to vital company information, such as solvency, payment record and payment timing, from a range of public and private sources.
Debbage added, “We invested a lot of time creating the best product for U.S. companies. Creditsafe matches the best of what its U.S. competitors offer plus provides the two key advantages of greater value for the money and greater quality data with coverage of Europe at no extra charge for companies doing business internationally. We are poised to transform the American credit-reporting market.”
Based in Allentown, Pa., Creditsafe USA employs 50 people with plans for a staff of 250 in the next five years in order to meet its ambitious goals for growth.
