The Summary section can be accessed from the left navigation and will automatically be displayed upon viewing a credit report.  The detailed Risk Assessment section can be accessed from the left navigation or from the top right Risk Assessment panel within the Summary section.   If the company is out of business then many of the sections will be suppressed as a score, rating or index cannot be calculated.

Advanced search also allows you to filter your search criteria to receive a more precise list of candidates.

For example:
  • “In Portfolio”, which limits the results to only those that are in your existing portfolio
  • ‘Active only’ which removes out-of-business companies
  • ‘Exclude Branches’ which removes branch locations from the search results
