Active Account / Behavioral Model
Measure the likelihood of an existing account exhibiting negative payment behavior (i.e. delinquency or write-off) within a specific time period. This model combines your account history with external data sources to maximize score performance.
Collections / Recovery Model
Measure the likelihood of recovering dollars from an existing account once it has been placed for collection.
Collections Prioritization Index
Combine your customer aging information with D&B’s predictive scores to achieve an actionable framework you can use to prioritize your internal collections based on risk and opportunity.
Your customer aging information is enhanced with D&B’s demographic and risk scores, to develop a credit limit matrix that integrates expected credit need with predicted risk.
Profile your customer portfolio by various risk and demographic segments to determine which variables are predictive in identifying the risk of delinquency. This analysis supports a client's development of judgmental scorecards for new or active accounts.
Evaluates a complex set of risk targeting or credit decision rules currently used by the client to quantify the impact of each criteria on client’s performance (i.e. delinquency or write-off rate) of those businesses.
Cross-sell / Up-sell Model
Estimate the likelihood that an existing customer will purchase additional products or services.
Provides a demographic and risk profile of a client's customer base and highlights segments with the highest and lowest potential, based on revenue contribution.
Estimate the likelihood that an existing customer will remain a customer over a specific time period.
Create distinct groups of customers that behave in the same way or have similar needs but are different from the overall customer base.
Demand Estimation Model (Propensity to Buy)
Predict a company's potential usage of products or services - either in terms of volume used or the amount of revenue spent.
Lifetime Value / Profitability Model
Measure your firm’s likelihood to be profitable or level of profitability within a specific time period based on the client’s definition of profitability (which includes both revenue and cost components).
Measure the similarity between a prospect and a client's best customers based on a combination of D&B demographic or risk characteristics.
A segmentation analysis of all US-based businesses aggregated to the zip code level; Places 33,000 zip codes into 9 Clusters based on various levels of risk and opportunity.
Get a demographic and risk profile of your customer portfolio, highlighting the segments at highest risk for write-off, and evaluate predictive scores that can be used to improve portfolio performance.
Measure the likelihood of experiencing a bad debt loss from an existing customer in a specific time period and estimates the dollar value of the loss, if incurred. This model combines a client's account history with external data sources (D&B, SBFE/ SBRI or consumer) to maximize score performance.
Our Macroeconomic Simulator is a series of models that are highly valuable for stress testing portfolios under 9 different economic conditions (best to worst). Model outputs include indices at the state-industry level that can “adjust” the predicted probability of a risk model under particular macroeconomic situations.
Leverage D&B's business universe to quantify the size of a prospective market, in terms of the number of businesses, aggregate sales volume, or employment. The client may define their market based on any combination of D&B demographic or risk variables.
Market Penetration Analysis
Assess market penetration by comparing the number of existing customers in your portfolio to the D&B business universe within specific geographic, industry or size segments.
Gain an understanding of the ROI associated with various types of channel marketing, their sequence and timing. For example, analyzing the results of a digital ad, followed by direct mail campaign and an outbound telemarketing campaign over a certain time horizon to gauge results of each independent activity or sequence of activities in order to optimize outreach strategies.
Predict the likelihood that a prospect will respond to a direct marketing offer.
Origination / New Account Model
Measure the likelihood of a new account exhibiting negative payment behavior (i.e. delinquency or write-off) within a specific time period. This model combines external data sources (D&B, SBRI or consumer) and application data to maximize score performance.
Compare your customer base or performance against the D&B business universe to highlight strengths or weaknesses within the portfolio.
Estimate the likelihood that a prospect will be approved for credit terms by a client's credit/underwriting department.
Compare your customer payment performance against prior period risk scores to determine if a standard or custom score is predictive of delinquency or write-off.
Estimate the total amount of revenue that a prospect or customer will spend on the defined products or services.
Compare your customer payment performance against prior period scores to determine if a client's judgmental scorecard is predictive of delinquency or write-off. D&B's predictive scores or other risk variables may also be evaluated.
Leverages standard or custom Demand Estimation Models to compare revenue potential at a customer level with a client's actual customer revenue and identify gaps. Customer-level comparisons can also be aggregated to market level based on a client's geographic, industry or size criteria.
Supply Chain Risk Analytics (Tier N)
