This new agreement also means that customers with access to both services can now use Orbis to research companies in detail, find individuals associated with companies as employees, on boards or in advisory roles, and then access LDI’s premium profile information on specific key and influential people. This new service is offered alongside BvD’s existing functionality and data, which already screens individuals for PEPs and Sanctions associations and shows if, and how, individuals are linked.
Andy Cowley, BvD’s vice president of its Americas operation said, “There is an increasing appetite for information on the people linked to companies. LDI is a leader in this field and its information is the ideal complement to Orbis. Our users will be able to get access to respected content in a way that helps them work more efficiently.”
Gretchen Teichgraeber, President & CEO of LDI added, “We have a long association with Bureau van Dijk who has developed software platforms for our databases for nearly 30 years. Linking our systems together like this is a new initiative and one that I’m sure will benefit our mutual customers. We’re also very pleased to be contributing our content to enrich the Orbis database.”
BvD’s Orbis is available on trial from http://www.bvdinfo.com. Orbis users who are also clients of LDI will automatically get access to the LDI reports via a one-off login. Orbis users who are not currently clients of LDI will find a free trial link within the Orbis interface so they can explore this option further.
