Experian Announces New Commercial Credit Monitoring Plan

Oct 13, 2006

Experian, a global information solutions company, has announced a new subscription-based credit-monitoring plan that provides business owners with unlimited access to their commercial credit reports. Available through Experian's SmartBusinessReports.com website, Credit Insure is designed to allow users to monitor business information to help them protect their business and reduce credit risk.

By using Credit Insure, business owners can monitor their company's credit, as well as the credit of companies they may do business with. The new plan's structure allows users to have unlimited access to their subscribed credit reports instead of having to pay each time a report is pulled. Credit Insure also includes an email alert system that notifies business owners of significant changes in their credit status that may affect their overall credit rating, such as inquiries, late trade payments, or major events like liens, judgments, and bankruptcies.

Experian's recently redesigned SmartBusinessReports.com homepage includes a credit dashboard displaying the monitored companies' current credit score. The dashboard also includes a graphic indicator representing how the score has changed over the previous three months, providing Credit Insure subscribers with a look at the scoring trends of that business. Additionally, the new site includes a library of materials designed to educate business owners on commercial credit topics. Credit Insure is offered at www.SmartBusinessReports.com for $12.95 per month or $99 annually for each subscribed company. Individual commercial credit reports are available for $24.95 to $44.95.
