Cortera’s Credit Exchange Now Gathers Insights from $1.2 Trillion in Purchases

Screen Shot 2016-08-16 at 1.53.46 PM

Business-to-business analytics provider Cortera reached a milestone this summer. The Florida-based company yesterday announced it has expanded the Cortera Credit Exchange database.

The Cortera Credit Exchange gathers information on the purchase and payment behavior on more than 10 million U.S. businesses. Between January and July 2016, this database increased by more than $170 billion in B2B purchases. This brings the database’s total annual purchase insights to $1.2 trillion.

Cortera leverages the purchase data to create analytics such as new customer risk-assessments, customer portfolio risk-monitoring, supplier risk management, customer segmentation, insurance underwriting, customer profitability modeling, and loan-default prediction.

Regarding the company’s future plans, Cortera CEO Jim Swift said, “we will continue to expand our data network aggressively and leverage our innovative platform to help customers solve business problems in new ways. We’re excited about the path we’re on.”

Since it was founded in 1993, Cortera has expanded its database to include hundreds of attributes to help businesses create statistical modeling and other analytics. The company demoed at FinovateSpring 2010 and recently appointed Bob Maguire as chief revenue officer.
