    additional qualified contacts and operating business locations to help
    locate hard-to-find debtors.
  oBusiness owner linkage data — Assess the overall financial health of a
    debtor by  identifying all businesses associated with that debtor, along
    with the creditworthiness of those businesses. Additionally, uncover
    co-owners/principals linked to the business who may also have financial
    responsibility.
  oTrade payment behavior data — Manage collections more efficiently by
    understanding which  debtors are most likely to pay based upon 90-day
    payment performance indicators.
