Hello, we are using www.creditsafe.com. They are a lot less expensive than D&B. Of course, the trade-off is that there is not as much data. However, I can usually get useful information and as the company grows, there is more data available. We pay $850 per year and have unlimited reports and queries.
We started using Credit Safe a year or two ago as well after using D&B. Our experience is similar in that there is a little less information available, but we thought there was enough there to switch over due to the lower price. Our AR Manager commented that for a snap shot at a point in time it works well, however for continuous monitoring it is not as good as D&B as the metrics aren't quite as good and they seem to bounce around a little more. But overall we have been happy and have continued to renew.
We haven't used D&B in years. My personal opinion is that they are a joke and the only info they get is what people feed them. Commenting to our banks my opinion has usually received similar comments that there are better choices.
