Visualisation tools make it easier for you to dissect the data, including graphs, pivot analyses and dynamic company structures to help you understand your results in seconds.

Bureau van Dijk is investing significant resources into making Orbis Financial Institutions and it will have key data benefits over alternatives as it links with Bureau van Dijk’s other extensive and exclusive datasets including:

  • our renowned, comprehensive ownership structures
  • bank structures
  • directors
  • AML documents

Available in our dynamic new interface, you can work faster using uncluttered and contemporary screens whilst still accessing all the functionality we're renowned for. You can access the information via our Add-ins or via a data feed delivered by API or a custom flat file, so it can easily be incorporated into existing models and workflow tools.

What are the controls in place to manage data quality?

Bureau van Dijk has applied more than 200 validation controls to the data. These controls are detailed in a document available on request (subject to a Non-Disclosure Agreement).

A quality management team checks data on an entity-by-entity basis and provides specialist technical assistance to the customer support and sales teams.
