Data Sources : Dun & Bradstreet Paydex and Payment Experiences
The data presented in this study come from the information held in DUNTRADE® PROGRAM and are elaborated by CRIBIS D&B.
In particular, payment assessment is based on the analysis of those companies for which a D&B Paydex value is available, where D&B Paydex is a statistical indicator that assesses the historical performance of payments to suppliers, and provides a reliable profile of a company in terms of whether or not it is a good payer.
Payment experiences are generated by the combined analysis of all commercial transactions (invoices, payments, overdue payments etc.) between a client company and its supplier over the course of the previous 12 months.
The DUNTRADE® Program
Payment experiences come from DUNTRADE®, the program used by Dun & Bradstreet Partners and participating companies aimed at collecting data, analyses and assessments of the payment practices of companies around the world.
