Financial Screening

Most clients want to know how effectively their suppliers handle their own financial obligations. BCS has developed a proprietary algorithm that leverages information from the national network of credit bureaus, Dun & Bradstreet, and others which gives our clients an up-to-date, objective analysis of the overall financial health of their suppliers.

Available Information

The financial information obtained for each supplier is posted to an online document repository, accessed only by authorized client users. Some of the information that is available includes:

  Company Background and General Information
  • Years in business
  • Total number of employees
  • Years since a change in management
  Industry Comparisons
  Financial and banking information
  • Existence and age of balance sheets
  • Quick and Current ratios
  • Net worth indicator
  • Total assets and liabilities
  • Net profit after taxes
  • Trends from previous statements
  Payment Records
  • Variance of PAYDEX scores and their difference from the industry norm
  • Number and dollar amount of total payment experiences and percentages of satisfactory or past due payment experiences
  Public Record Information
  • Number and dollar amount of suits, liens, judgments, and bankruptcies
  • Number of UCC Filings
  • Business deterioration
  Permit collection and verification
  Full document tracking and management services for company and employee HSE and Quality certificates
  Expiration tracking and electronic expiration notifications to suppliers and clients

Why It Matters

The financial health of even one of your company’s suppliers can, unfortunately, make or break your business. It’s wise to assess the risk of current and potential suppliers to help ensure that your company receives its deliveries and services on time, successfully collects payments when they are due, and is not in trouble should a supplier go out of business unexpectedly.

By doing your due diligence, you will decrease your risk.
