D&B Canada launches DNBi: A Revolutionary Risk Management Tool for the Canadian Commercial Credit Management Industry

    Interactive and innovative, DNBi offers Canadian companies of all sizes
    unprecedented Power, Freedom and Confidence in managing their commercial
    credit risk. Over 50,000 users in more than 10,000 US companies already
    rely on DNBi to inform their credit decision-making... and now Canadian
    companies can too.

    MISSISSAUGA, ON, Sept. 17 /CNW/ - D&B Canada Inc. is pleased to announce
the launch of DNBi into the Canadian marketplace. Since having débuted at the
Credit Institute of Canada's National Conference held in Whistler, BC last
June, DNBi has garnered considerable interest among credit management
professionals as D&B Canada has fielded a steady stream of inquiries over the
last three months from companies eagerly awaiting its arrival, many of whom
have US parents or affiliates that are already using this powerful, web-based
tool south of the border.
    "Most products strive to enable their users to do the same things they do
today, only better - that's evolutionary", explained D&B Canada's President,
Lawrence Franco, "DNBi is revolutionary - it actually changes the way credit
professionals manage credit risk and has the power to transform the unwritten
rules around how credit decisions are made today in Corporate Canada. DNBi
empowers companies to make more informed, efficient and consistent credit
decisions than ever before. And it does this in entirely new ways, for one set
price", he explained.
    DNBi's News & Alerts feature enables companies to monitor late-breaking
changes to their customers' or prospects' credit worthiness using D&B data
that constantly, and automatically, refreshes itself. The DNBi Dashboard
provides users with an at-a-glance summary of information they need to make
business-critical decisions. DNBi's customized foldering functionality allows
users to organize, archive and share the information they used to arrive at
those decisions.
    Credit professionals will also have access to a holistic view of the
inter-relationships that exist across a customer's entire corporate family,
enabling them to protect their company's credit exposure based on each
customer's complete risk picture thanks to DNBi's Corporate Linkage feature.
D&B's proprietary scores and indices will make it possible for DNBi users to
confidently rely on comparative industry benchmarks of business performance to
uncover a customer's or prospect's current credit situation as well as predict
future credit risk and opportunity.
    "And the best part", concludes Mr. Franco, "is that this is only the
beginning of DNBi's value proposition...DNBi will continue to evolve with our
customers' needs, by delivering additional functionality through the
introduction of new modules. Already, new modules are planned for introduction
in 2008. This is definitely a tool that grows with its users", he said.
    Seeing is believing. For more information or a free online demonstration
