Experian Business Information Services is a leader in providing data and predictive insights to organizations, helping them mitigate risk and improve profitability. The company’s business database provides comprehensive, third-party-verified information on 99.9 percent of all U.S. companies, with the industry’s most extensive data on the broad spectrum of small and midsize businesses.
By leveraging state-of-the-art technology and superior data compilation techniques, Experian is able to provide market-leading tools, such as BusinessIQSM, that assist clients in making real-time decisions, processing new applications, managing customer relationships and collecting on delinquent accounts
Dynamic Access ( http://www.experian.com/business-information/dynamic-access.html ) allows clients to leverage Experian’s commercial and guarantor intelligence from the comfort of your own business management software system. Reduce out-of-pocket costs and save time by choosing as much or as little data as you desire, with no filters, directly from BizSourceSM, Experian’s state-of-the-art commercial repository.
You can receive only the data you need in real time via an XML interface directly to your Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) or Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system to more efficiently enhance visibility and improve analytics.
Through Dynamic Access users can receive all the data fields from our most complete report, the Premier Profile (http://www.experian.com/assets/business-information/brochures/businessiq-premier-profile-ps.pdf ). These fields are bundled into data segments to allow clients the flexibility of receiving just the elements they want.
The Businesses API provides a la carte access to Experian's commercial credit and commercial public record information, including commercial scores, trades, corporate linkage, bankruptcies, liens, judgments, and more
The Business Search API allows you to input a business name, address, city, and state to find their Business Identification Number (BIN) - you'll need this to get data from most of the other APIs.
Please note that the Businesses API in the Developer Portal Sandbox is a non-production service that is for testing and demonstration purposes only. Only a limited number of businesses are available in the sandbox test environment. A list of valid Business Identification Numbers (BINs) can be provided to you upon your request, and valid BINs in the sandbox can also be obtained using the Business Search API.
