  5. 5. Mission & Vision <ul><li>Mission </li></ul><ul><li>The mission of Graydon International is to give companies in the entire world the power to make better business decisions. </li></ul><ul><li>Vision </li></ul><ul><li>Because we aspire to become even more globally rooted, emerging markets require and deserve our attention. Establishing new partnerships has priority. We aspire to keep developing new tools for our clients. Although credit data are uniform in principle, what matters to us is how we can cater to the wishes of each client optimally. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Global coverage
  7. 7. What is your credit risk? <ul><li>You might be affected by credit risk in different ways. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Let’s say you have an exporting company, for example. How can you estimate the chances that your overseas business partner won't go bankrupt? You might decide to take an informed decision before doing business, based on a credit report. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What if you want to process fast a number of clients, even automate large numbers of credit decisions. You think in terms of risk profiles, you want to know the big picture of a certain region or sector. </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. Why credit management? <ul><li>Would you take the risk of doing business on an open account in an unfamiliar country with new business partners? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Graydon International takes away the worry by providing business credit information. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Lower your risk exposure and grow new relationships. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The cost of a credit report is less than the cost of several weeks interest on a major outstanding invoice. </li></ul></ul>
  9. 9. Our products <ul><ul><li>Business credit reports An instant online report of your customer’s credit risk: risk category, credit recommendations, payment behaviour, shareholders structure, balance sheets and more. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Web services With web services you can 'package' our data, for example as reports in your own style. Our web services let you stream credit data seamlessly into your system. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Solutions & Monitoring Will be developed </li></ul></ul>
  10. 10. Business credit reports
  11. 11. The ease of online business credit reports <ul><li>Online business credit reports have the following benefits: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>T ake a quick glance at your customer’s credit-worthiness: recent payment experiences, risk category, credit recommendations, a financial summary, balance sheet, and more. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Get familiar with your business partner : What about its history? Is there a strong or a weak parent company. Is the company part of a larger company group (more business opportunities!) Who is authorized to sign? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Get a feel for the industry : How does the company perform relative to its competitors? How many employees does it have? How is the sector as a whole performing? Which growth trends can be identified? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Lower your risk, for less costs : the cost of a credit report is less than the cost of several weeks' interest on a major outstanding invoice </li></ul></ul>
  12. 12. How are Business credit reports made?
  13. 13. Web services
  14. 14. The benefits of Web services <ul><ul><li>No interface hassles: a single thread to a global network Why set up interfaces with many different databases in a lot of countries, if you can save yourself the hassle? Get your global credit information via a single thread: the XML Gateway already set up by Graydon International. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Have access to the real-time core of our credit data Sure, a 'packaged' form of our credit data (a report) is useful for many purposes. But the unpackaged data are closer to the core and real-time by definition. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A trusted way to share structured data The format of the credit data is XML. This is a trusted way to share structured data across different information systems. In fact, well-known banks, credit reference agencies, business information providers, and other large organisations all use this system for their corporate customers. </li></ul></ul>
