Dun & Bradstreet Reports

  • LexisNexis is offering the following reports from business information provider Dun & Bradstreet:

  • Supplier Evaluation Report—Provides information and analyses that help assess the risk of doing business with a supplier
  • Comprehensive Report—Provides a tool for assessing new and existing business relationships in which the large dollar and/or long-term nature of a commitment pose a significant risk or opportunity
  • Government Activity Report—Delivers details on a company's transactions with the federal government, including contracts, loans, and grants
  • Business Background Report—Provides useful information on a company's history and operations as well as the business background of its management
  • Dun's Financial Profile—Offers an overviewof a firm's financial condition, complete with industry benchmarking of its key business ratios and financial and payment performance
Sounds Like

The new Sounds Like feature can be used when either the exact spelling of the first and last name of a person is unknown or the first and last name entered as a search by the user do not retrieve usable documents.

"A Sounds Like search returns names that the researcher might never have thought of entering into the search, producing a more complete result set," said Paul Gazzolo, vice president of LexisNexis' Large Law Firm Marketing. "It saves time and increases productivity by automatically finding phonetic matches and nicknames and then ranking the results based on relevancy."
