July 28, 2014

Second-generation software solution will help businesses mitigate financial and operational risk across supply chains

SHORT HILLS, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Dun & Bradstreet (NYSE:DNB), the world's leading source of commercial information and insight on businesses, today announced the launch of D&B Supplier Risk Manager 2.0, a second-generation software solution to help businesses mitigate financial and operational instability, analyze risk and monitor distribution resources to maintain sustainability across supply chains.

These features allow users to anticipate and proactively respond to threats before there is any impact to the business.

“As supply chains expand in complexity, procurement professionals face new challenges and need to identify signs of disruption before it impacts the business,” said Laura Kelly, Chief Product Officer, Dun & Bradstreet. “The second generation of Supplier Risk Manager now delivers early warning signals through a faster, easier-to-use interface, allowing businesses to anticipate and mitigate supply chain risk.”

Key enhancement areas for the new release include:

  • Faster, more efficient and intuitive interface capable of generating more than 1,000 results within seconds
  • User-friendly interface with a newly designed landing page which features scroll-over and type-head functionality
  • Enhanced corporate linkage, allowing for increased visibility into supply chains as well as greater insight into risk across different facets of an organization

    The launch comes on the heels of Global Finance’s recognition of D&B as one of the year’s best supply chain finance providers, specifically, Best Analytics for Credit Scoring and Risk Assessmenton a global level. Global Finance’s editorial team - with input from industry analysts, corporate executives and technology experts - selected the best providers of supply chain financing and management services.
