Bisnode

  • Magnus Silfverberg

    CEO

Bisnode’s core business is to support corporate processes in terms of credit and business decisions as well as marketing information through the use of data-driven products, making it easier for the company’s customers to make smart decisions. Bisnode uses local and global data of the highest quality from more than 550 data sources. Abstract data is analysed and interpreted into relevant material for business decisions. Bisnode operates in 18 European countries, and supplies local and global quality data to companies, government agencies, organisations and municipalities through its strategic partner Dun & Bradstreet.

Market

The European data and analysis market is growing in both B2B and B2C. The total European market is estimated to be around EUR 6 billion. It is expected to continue to grow as digitisation, globalisation and new technologies facilitate faster and more cost-effective processing of large volumes of data.

Sustainability

In pace with the digital transformation, digital sustainability has been identified as Bisnode’s most significant sustainability issue taking into account Bisnode’s business model. Digital sustainability includes data security, data protection and personal integrity. In 2018, Bisnode pursued the transition to renewable energy supply in its offices and servers. Bisnode is convinced that diversity and a cohesive workplace drives innovation and attracts talent. Consequently, the company endeavours to increase the share of women in the company, particularly in executive positions. This commitment to sustainability is regulated in our Code of Conduct, which is based on the UN Global Compact.

Digital transformation and growth potential

Bisnode is undergoing a value-creating transformation and has significant potential to continue to develop its business based on the company’s local expertise and global resources within a growing market and credit information segment. The digital transformation that has begun will be important going forward. Focus on creating economies of scale and synergies remains a priority. Moreover, the company has strategic initiatives that strengthen the organisation, develop the offering and expand operations in order to boost competitiveness and gain market shares.
