D&B Triple Play - Standard (Composite Risk)

D&B Triple Playis 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.
