Worldbox offers Global Portfolio Management Tool
The Business Intelligence company Worldbox is providing access to a new Portfolio Management service powered by its API via XML.
The Worldbox Portfolio Management Tool enables customers to focus on their specific customers or suppliers to help manage decision making in production and logistical workflows.
Instructed specifically by the client, Worldbox will supply bespoke management systems providing the most current data sets within schedules outlined by customers.
Worldbox CEO, Adrian Ashurst, says that through this approach customers can define a tailored 'shopping list' of companies that they need to manage; including suppliers, customers, and contract partners; particularly wherever information on companies - such as in emerging markets - is not available via current online services.
"More and more customers are approaching us with a need for global monitoring," he said.
"The difficulties faced are that not everything is online: so by utilising our strength in research we can operate efficiently and quickly on the ground with our extensive network and then provide the results through our API while maintaining the 'online' delivery method that customers expect and require”.
All XML company data feeds feature exclusive identification system via WIN Numbers (Worldbox Identification Numbers).
Worldbox is a global provider of business, due diligence and credit information of over 20 years; with offices in the UK, Hong Kong, Holland and India.
The company specialises in obtaining hard-to-find company information, particularly in developing regions, using its network of on-the-ground agents, serving clients across sectors including Export Credit Risk Insurance, M&A Due Diligence, Anti-Bribery Compliance, and Institutional Investment.
Outsell shortlisted Worldbox as an 'Emerging Disruptor' in its Financial, Credit, Legal and Governance, Risk and Compliance Report 2014 as "a credit information and Business Intelligence (BI) provider that is growing aggressively in brand equity [and has] grown to become the largest provider of cross-border information, locally'.
