Supplier Portfolio Alerts

D&B data is refreshed monthly or daily according to your preferences and you can update your data with supplier data at any time. Through Supplier Portfolio Manager Alerts you can be told of significant changes within your portfolio to avoid supply chain disruption risk. You can manage what alerts are generated by determining your own customized triggers and then review all suppliers with a change through View Alerts or request notification via email. For example: identify those suppliers that have moved between your defined risk bands or whose D&B score has changed by more than 10.
