Creditsafe, the business intelligence experts, has opened a second US office following two successful years building its business in North America. The new Creditsafe office will be based in Tempe, near Phoenix, Arizona and is predicted to grow from its current base of 30 employees to 150 by 2016. Creditsafe opened its first US office in Allentown, Pennsylvania in September 2012 and this now has 150 employees. Overall, Creditsafe has 5,000 customers in the US.
Information provided by Creditsafe comes from a range of public and private sources, including payment behaviour. It can provide data on 47 million US businesses and customers will have access to 70 million records for European companies as well.
Matthew Debbage, President of Creditsafe’s US Operations said the company picked the Arizona location because it would provide the ability to better serve customers in western time zones. “We are delighted with the success of our North American operation so far, which is part of Creditsafe Group’s ambitious international growth strategy. The quality of the workforce and the business environment in Phoenix led us to choose the Tempe office and we look forward to expanding our operation there still further over the coming years.”
Creditsafe aims to replicate the success of its business in Europe, which has grown over the past few years to include offices in the UK, Germany, France, Sweden, Ireland, Italy, Belgium and the Netherlands, with its US operation.
The Creditsafe Group is the world’s most used supplier of company business intelligence with 10 Creditsafe Group reports downloaded every second.
Privately owned and independently minded Creditsafe is looking to change the way business information is used by providing high quality data in an easy to use format that allows everyone in an organisation can benefit from.
