Creditsafe expands its database to African Countries

Creditsafe USA, the global business intelligence experts, announced today that it has extended its global database to include business intelligence with the addition of 47 African countries.

This means that Creditsafe customers can now pull real-time credit reports on companies from 160 countries.

“For some time we have been aware of the challenge companies face sourcing data in this territory,” said Matthew Debbage, CEO of Creditsafe Asia and Americas. “Today, I’m proud to announce we’ve filled in that gap by providing access to all the countries on the continent of Africa.”

Real-time access to business intelligence within Africa comes at a pivotal time. Not only are four of the world’s fastest-growing economies located in Africa, but companies reliant on quality business data are optimistic about the role Africa will play in the future of the US economy. On a recent trip, Co-Founder and CEO of Twitter and Square, Jack Dorsey said “Africa will define the future.”

“Once again we have listened to what our customers are asking,” said Debbage. “Just as they do in other parts of the world, our customers will now be leveraging the highest quality business data to increase confidence in their decisions when trading internationally.”
