Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp. Gives Businesses First-Ever Free
New CreditSignal(TM) Product Alerts Businesses When Changes Take
Place in Their Credit Report
LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/20/12 -- Dun & Bradstreet
Credibility Corp., the leading provider of credit building and
credibility management solutions for businesses, today introduced
CreditSignal(TM), a first-of-its-kind free business credit report
that alerts companies to changes in their business credit scores and
D&B Credibility designed CreditSignal as a free offering because the
company saw an acute market need for a business credit alert system
that could be used by every business. By creating a free alert
product similar to those offered by personal credit bureaus, D&B
Credibility is pushing for broad adoption in the hopes that every
business in America will take control of and stay alerted to changes
taking place in their business credit file.
The broad-based need for such a product was underscored by last
month's security breach in the South Carolina Department of Revenue.
D&B Credibility reacted quickly to this crisis, partnering with South
Carolina Governor Nikki Haley to make its credit monitoring tools
available for free to help protect affected businesses. Because
CreditSignal was not yet available for use at that time, D&B
Credibility provided South Carolina businesses free access to its
CreditAlert(TM) product, which otherwise subscribers pay either
$19.99 monthly or $199 annually.
"We now live in a world where breaches are becoming more common and
credit security -- personal and business credit -- can be at risk,"
said Nikki Haley, Governor of South Carolina. "We have experienced
first-hand that even the government is not immune when hackers get
"The security breach in South Carolina validated what our market
research had already identified; every business needs a free product
that simply alerts them to activity taking place in their credit file
so they can stay in control of their business credit," said Jeff
Stibel, Chairman and CEO of Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp.
CreditSignal provides subscribers with indicators as to the company's
overall credit health. Alerts are sent anytime a CreditSignal
customer experiences a change t
o their D&B scores and ratings and
when another business, bank or other entity pulls a credit report on
that subscriber. In the event a subscriber chooses to monitor more
closely or address an unhealthy business credit file, D&B Credibility
offers CreditMonitor(TM) and CreditBuilder(TM). Businesses interested
in subscribing to the free CreditSignal product or learning more
about business credit monitoring can visit www.creditsignal.com. As
of Monday, December 24th, businesses can sign up for CreditSignal
from smartphones at m.creditsignal.com.
