Problem or Opportunity
To date, the available sources of information about the reliability of the company are a credit score of the company, existing partner references and online reviews. A company that is searching data and verifying information about a new partner or client is still at risk to be deceived or to run into an unscrupulous partner, because:
1. Credit score of the company provides information about the financial situation only. Waiting time is currently standing up to three days.
2. References provided are always positive, which also does not always reflect the real situation. Re-checking by tel. and e-mail takes time and it is not possible to get an answer at all times.
3. Most of review web-sites and Google may not be credible, because their reviews:
- are not supported by evidence,
- do not describe the real picture of relationships with partners and customers,
- serving increasing of company’s rating, her image and products,
- most of negative reviews are removed.
