Creditsafe launches in the Middle East PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 01 August 2017
Global business intelligence experts, Creditsafe, has today announced the addition of 16 countries across the Middle East and North Africa to its global platform.

Businesses will now be able to gain instant online access to credit reports for companies in countries including: Bahrain, Benin, Burkina Faso, Congo Kinshasa, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Palestine (West Bank and Gaza), Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, United Arab Emirates, and Western Sahara. This new international reach will see Creditsafe’s online database provide access to world class business intelligence on over 240 million businesses in over 100 countries.

In September 2016, Creditsafe announced the addition of 18 countries across Europe and Asia and 40 million Chinese companies to its global platform, marking a 33% increase in credit reporting coverage worldwide.

Rachel Mainwaring, Operations Director at Creditsafe, commented: “Business intelligence that is reliable, trusted and accurate is fundamental to doing business in the Middle East and North Africa. Effectively understanding the financials, payment habits and payment trends of businesses in the region can help reduce risk when trading internationally.

“By adding these territories to our global platform we are now in a positon to offer an instantly available credit report or fresh investigation to our customers from anywhere in the world.

“That level of coverage and access to worldwide PLC reports means that we can provide customers with access to international expertise and the ability to learn from other regions and see the changes in financial systems to make smart, economically viable business decisions.”
