Blue Book Scores and Ratings

Blue Book Scores and Ratings help those extending credit to make quick “Sell” or “No-Sell” decisions by providing concise, accurate credit data.  Blue Book Scores and Ratings are available online (Blue Book Online Services), on your mobile device (BBOS Mobile), in business reports and by calling a customer service representative.  Changes to a Blue Book Rating or Score are updated in real-time and also trigger email Alerts on companies you monitor.  A summary of all Rating changes is delivered every week by email in the Weekly Credit Sheet.

Business Reports

When trading with a new business connection, renewing an old relationship or taking a closer look at a changing situation, Blue Book Services’ in-depth Business Reports tell you everything you need to know about a company.

Reports include: industry payment history, financial information and ratios, corporate histories, ownership background, information on judgments and liens, as well as branch or subsidiary information, plus much more.  For US-based companies, Business Reports also include Experian commercial credit data.

Alerts & Updates

As a Blue Book Member, you can create your own list of companies to monitor and we’ll deliver an email alert anytime a company’s rating changes or we report a significant credit event, giving you peace-of-mind that you are making credit decisions based upon the most recent information.  The Weekly Credit Sheet is delivered every Friday and includes all reported changes reported that week, across the entire industry.

Accounts Receivable Aging Reports

The Accounts Receivable Aging Report provides an in-depth look at a company’s pay history with other suppliers, helping you make the best business decision possible.  This feature is available exclusively to members that contribute their A/R aging file monthly.  All A/R aging files are maintained securely and confidentially.
