|LexisNexis has announced that it has added Dun & Bradstreet Reports
and a Sounds Like search feature for public records data to lexis.com.
Dun & Bradstreet Reports
LexisNexis is offering the following reports from business information
provider Dun & Bradstreet:
Business Information Report—Offers an overall profile of a company to evaluate
operations, profitability, and stability. It can deliver payment information,
banking, finance, public filings, special events, and company and management
Payment Analysis Report—Features in-depth historical analysis of a business'
payment habits. It can provide information on a firm's banking relationships,
public filings, and special events.
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
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."
