Version5.0
5.0 Released OnJanuary 23, 2015

D&B Triple Play is a segmentation score that combines the values of three standard D&B scores (D&B Commercial Credit Score [also known as the D&B Delinquency Predictor], D&B Total Loss Predictor and D&B Viability Rating) in order to establish a more complete view of customer risk. Customer studies have shown that the combined power of the triple play significantly outperforms any of the three scores individually.

The Standard packet is intended for general pre-qualification and basic work flow set up.

The Enhanced packet allows the creation of action-driven rules based on the cluster strings.

The Premium packet provides access to the raw values and classes for each of the three scores that could be combined (possibly with additional data or logic) to derive an ‘optimized’ composite risk score.

See the Predictive Analytics page for more information on Dun & Bradstreet's risk scores.

Lists of possible values (when present) are subject to change. Additional values not presented in this documentation may be delivered in the response and should be anticipated in any implementation.

Empty/NULL Values

A NULL returned for an element indicates that the information was not provided to D&B when the related data items were collected. The absence of a value for a particular item should not be considered indicative of any implied value (e.g., NULL for a boolean indicator is NOT the same as a value of 'false').

Currency Codes/Units

Whenever financial statement data is included in a response, each individual business element (ItemAmount) should be inspected for currency code and unit values (CurrencyISOAlpha3Code and UnitOfSize). If a given element does not include these attributes, the values provided in the statement header should be utilized.

Response Codes & Error Handling

Successful service requests will return a CM000 response code in the TransactionResult ResultID field. Otherwise, one of the D&B Direct standard response codes will be returned.

This operation may return the following response codes: CM001-CM005, CM007-CM012, CM014, CM017, CM018, PD001, PD003, PD005, PD006, PD015, PD016, and SC001-SC012.

D&B Direct 2.0 API requests are provided on a metered basis; and may require entitlement prior to use in the production environment. In addition, a concurrency limit (QPS) is monitored to ensure that it is not exceeded. An error code will be returned in the event that a transaction is throttled.

Qualified usage (e.g., a successful response) is tracked and billed according to the terms & conditions of the customer's contract. The response codes CM000, CM010, PD002 and PD015 are considered successful. A built-in feature exists to prevent duplicate billing when multiple successful requests with the same D-U-N-S Number and product code are submitted on the same calendar day (which is based on Eastern Standard Time [GMT-5]).

Retrieving Archived Copies

An option exists to retain the results from all successful requests for this product in a Product Request Archive, which may be retrieved without incurring additional usage charges.

NOTE: The default value for ArchiveProductOptOutIndicator is 'true', indicating that the request will NOT be automatically archived.

Business Elements

While D&B Direct uses a product canonical naming model in the request/response, many customers may be more familiar with the following business element labels.

This product will also return a set of standard elements (e.g. D-U-N-S Number, Organization Name, Trade Styles, Family Tree Role, Primary Address, Mailing Address, Telephone Number, Fax Number, etc.) in addition to the business elements listed.

Product Notes

The availability of certain scores delivered by this product may be limited due to a lack of sufficient company or industry specific data to perform the calculations.

Composite Risk

Output is one value: Triple Play Composite Risk Score which may contain 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 where 0 is the lowest risk and 6 is the highest risk.

Allows customer to bring a layer of pre-qualification to transactional application submissions, routing for review/approval, additional due diligence required, set cash terms, etc.

Segmentation

Output is two values: Triple Play Segment Value (0,1-5) with descriptions, and a Triple Play Cluster Value. Segment Value descriptions include: 1 is “It’s All Good”, 2 is “Cash Is Not King”, 3 is “Here Today”, 4 is “Identity Crisis”, 5 is “Danger, Danger”.

There are a total of 27 different Triple Play Cluster Values based on the three scores with a value of 2 representing Good risk, 1 representing Average risk and 0 representing Bad risk for the scores.

For example, if the Triple Play Cluster Value is "2,0,2" – it means higher potential for fraud/no pay – send to special investigation.

If the Triple Play Cluster Value is "0,2,2" – it means higher potential for going out of business within next 12 months – set higher price to try an gain margin in first year; no longer term contracts, do not place on costly retention program.

If the Triple Play Cluster Value is "2,2,2"-- it could generate an automated yes decision, set most attractive price, place on highest priority for nurture and grow program.

Premium Option

The following details describe the scores that have been combined into this data layer:

D&B Commercial Credit Score [a.k.a. D&B Delinquency Predictor]

The Commercial Credit Score (CCS) predicts the likelihood of a business paying its bills in a severely delinquent manner (91 days or more past terms), obtaining legal relief from its creditors or ceasing operations without paying all creditors in full over the next 12 months.

D&B defines severe delinquency as a business with at least 10% of its payments 91 days or more past due, based on the information in D&B’s commercial database. The score ranges from 101 to 670, where 101 represent the highest probability and 670 represent the lowest possibility of delinquency.

The availability of certain scores delivered by this product may be limited due to a lack of sufficient company or industry specific data to perform the calculations.

This product is only available for organizations domiciled in the United States. If the trade up option was selected, and the headquarters is domiciled in another country, an error may be returned depending on the scope of the particular database being accessed by the product request.

D&B Total Loss Predictor

The availability of certain scores delivered by this product may be limited due to a lack of sufficient company or industry specific data to perform the calculations.

The D&B Total Loss Predictor score will predict a business’s intent or willingness to not pay other commercial businesses (business to business dealings), which affects financial institutions and other industries that extend trade credit. The score calculation makes use of historical search patterns from a search database along with other high-risk identifiers and proprietary data to produce a score that can be used to discriminate between fraudulent and legitimate credit seeking payment behavior.

D&B Viability Rating

The specific components of the D&B Viability Rating are:

  • Viability Score: predictive rating of 1-9 where 1 is the lowest probability that a company will no longer be a viable business within the next 12 months to businesses in the same country within the D&B’s database and 9 is highest probability.. A business is no longer viable when it goes out of business, becomes dormant/ inactive or files for bankruptcy/insolvency.
  • Portfolio Comparison:predictive rating of 1-9 where 1 is the lowest probability that a company will no longer be a viable business within the next 12 months compared to other businesses within the same model segment and 9 is the highest probability. A business is no longer viable when it goes out of business, becomes dormant/ inactive or files for bankruptcy/insolvency.
  • Data Depth Indicator: descriptive rating of A-G and H-N. A-G is assigned on a “report card-like” scale where A is assigned to businesses with the highest level of predictive data including complete firmographics, extensive commercial trading activity, and comprehensive financial attributes and G is assigned to business with the lowest level of predictive data including basic identify data only. H-N are special categories that override the A-G rating giving our customer’s further insight when D&B has confirmation that a business has met one of six risk conditions.
  • Company Profile: descriptive rating A-X and Y-Z where A is the largest, most established businesses with complete, comprehensive data reported in the D&B database and X is the smallest, youngest businesses with basic firmographic data only. Y is assigned to a branch location and Z is assigned to a business that is a subsidiary.

Viability Score is the first of four components within the D&B Viability Rating. It is a high-level risk indicator that assesses the probability that a company will no longer be a viable business within the next 12 months, compared to businesses in the same country within the D&B database. A business is no longer viable when it goes out of business, becomes dormant/ inactive or files for bankruptcy/insolvency.

The ranking ranges from 1 to 9 where 9 reflects the highest probability of becoming no longer viable and 1 reflects the lowest probability.

Note: The Viability Score is best used when ranking all businesses within your portfolio especially for identifying the most valuable prospects for Sales and Marketing.

Portfolio Comparison is the second of four components within the D&B Viability Rating. Portfolio Comparison is a more detailed risk indicator that assesses the viability of a company compared to similar businesses within the same model segment which are determined by the amount and type of data available. A business is no longer viable when it goes out of business, becomes dormant/ inactive or files for bankruptcy/insolvency.

The Portfolio Comparison ranking ranges from 1 to 9 where 9 reflects the highest probability of becoming no longer viable and 1 reflects the lowest probability.

Every business falls into 1 of 4 profile segments. The segments will vary by country as follows:

United StatesCanada
  • Available Financial Data
  • Established Trade Payments
  • Limited Trade Payments
  • Firmographics and Business Activity
  • Large Businesses with Established Trade Payments
  • Large Businesses with Firmographics and Business Activity
  • Small to Medium Business with Established Trade Payments
  • Small to Medium Business with Firmographics and Business Activity

Note: The Portfolio Comparison is best used when analyzing the individual risk level of a company for Credit Risk Management purposes.

*Large businesses have either 50+ Employees or $500K+ Sales. Small to Medium businesses have less than 50 employees and less than $500K in Sales.

Data Depth Indicator is the third of four components within the D&B Viability Rating. The Depth of Data Indicator presents the level of data that is used to generate the Viability Score and Portfolio Comparison. Data depth assists in the assessment of whether a company will no longer be viable and may include the following (data depth attributes will vary by country):

  • Financial Attributes
  • Commercial Trading Activity
  • Firmographics

The level of data is represented by a letter on a scale of A – G where A reflects the greatest level of predictive data to make a highly reliable assessment of company viability, and G reflects a minimal level of data which can be considered descriptive. The more comprehensive the data, the more precise the overall D&B Viability Rating becomes. If a company has been placed in the Special Category, a letter ranging from H-N will be assigned to identify the specific reason. Reference the chart below for details.
