Risk management solution enhancements: software, platform and cloud based risk management providers can power their offering by adding a feed of official and authoritative company information to existing risk management solutions. This results in a richer offering to their business customers.
Domain name provider checks: domain name providers are required to check the business status of applicants for domain names. This can be fully automated through accessing commercial register data as part of the verification process.
Trading platform enhancements: platforms that bring together suppliers and buyers can enhance their service offering by providing company verification as an integrated part of their solution or by offering such a service to their platform customers.
