Experian Makes Business Credit Data Available to Salesforce.com Users


Forseva application enables companies to assess business credit risk exposure through one convenient user interface

COSTA MESA, Calif., Aug. 24 -- Experian®, the global information services company, has joined with Forseva, LLC, to deliver business data on Salesforce.com. With the Forseva application, Experian is one of the first providers to make business credit data available on the cloud-based technology platform of Salesforce.com.

The new application allows users to pull Experian's business credit data seamlessly into Salesforce.com, where they are able to perform credit decisioning, portfolio monitoring and collections management through one user interface. With the push of a button, users can obtain a prospect's business credit report and, using preconfigured rules, instantly determine how much credit should be extended based on payment history and business credit score.

"Now more than ever, companies need to be able to quickly assess the credit risk of prospects. We identified this need and worked with Forseva to put credit decisioning information right at their fingertips," said Allen Anderson, president, Experian's Business Information Services. "By making our business data available in the Salesforce.com environment, companies have turnkey access to information for credit validation of customer accounts and portfolio monitoring of credit risk exposure."

The Forseva application for Salesforce.com is available to Experian business information customers free of charge, and cloud-based computing enables customers to be up and running in a matter of days.
