Test forum established

We receive many questions about trading with individual companies and hundreds of emails asking about the validity of companies on our database.

Our new forum allows you to communicate share information about companies between other ukdata.com users.

We will answer any questions you have and also will participate (*if we can*) in solving any problems you may have.

In the near future we will be using this blog and the forum to demonstrate ideas, new features and products we would like to integrate into www.ukdata.com - we would love your feedback on these as we showcase them so that all and any changes we make to the website benefit you.

The forum can be found here - http://www.ukdata.com/forum

Note:

You will need to create a new user id for the forum - we don't intend to tie in your ukdata.com username and password to the forum for security reasons. If you wish you can use the same email address just don't use the same password!

Company monitoring on the increase

Fear of company failure is fuelling an unprecedented rise in company monitoring.

Our monitoring service, which offers free and unlimited access to changes in company credit score, has seen an increase of 175% of new users wishing to use the service in January 2008 compared to January 2007.

Random telephone sampling of these new clients has pointed to a fear of losing clients with any outstanding credit, which is not a surprise, but also that they wish to monitor suppliers - even the largest ones - for fear of being left unable to continue trading.

It seems that at the moment, no company is perceived to be immune from the credit crisis and that everyone from the smallest SME to the largest corporations are all wary of being exposed.
