Technical details

Clean and high-quality data for higher sales performance

With the D&B integration, you have clean, up-to-date, high-quality data for your accounts and contacts in your system in real time. This is especially important since it is estimated (source: Salesforce) that 91% of the data in a CRM system is incomplete and 70% of the data becomes outdated within a year.

  • All Data Blocks available
    All D&B data blocks are available for integration into your system. You can get an overview of all available data on the Data Marketplace.
  • Monitoring
    Once you have linked a company to D&B’s DUNS in the Marini Integration Platform, you can add it to the monitoring. This means that as soon as an update of the data takes place in the D&B Data Cloud, the update is pushed directly to the Marini Integration Platform and is available to you there.
  • Type-Ahead Search
    Type and get the most relevant matches displayed on-the-fly. The fastest way to identify and create a new business partner with the correct master data.
  • Criteria Search
    Looking for new customers? Select the most relevant companies according to your own search criteria such as industry, size, address, radius and much more and use them for your campaigns.
  • Identity Resolution
    You don’t know the exact name, but you know more details? Statistical matching suggests the most likely companies based on your information. You decide and get the right data synchronized directly into your system. How this works exactly, you can find out here.
  • Master Data
    Validate and standardize the master data of your accounts. All company data is always up to date – such as managing director or address data.
  • Risk and Compliance Data
    With this external data, you can address requirements such as KYC, AML, and ESG. Through effective risk management and credit management, you know exactly who you are dealing with and you can avoid unpredictable business risks.
  • Financial Data
    You get all the information about the financial assessment of the company – such as ratings, scores or business reports.
  • Company Structure Data
    You can enrich your account with all data related to the company structure. What are the company linkages (franchises, subsidiaries, etc.) and ownership structures?
  • Payment Insights
    It is often important to be able to assess the payment power and liquidity of a company, especially in pre-sales phases. D&B provides numerous insights, including its own Payment Index.
  • Fast reaction and sales success
    Thanks to the integration and the additional information available, you can respond quickly and specifically to inquiries and customer reactions. This increases your sales success.

High-quality and clean data in SAP S/4HANA and Microsoft Dynamics for more effective and efficient processes as well as lower costs

A real challenge in sales is keeping data up-to-date and, in particular, achieving high data quality. Companies that succeed in this achieve on average 30% higher sales.

Sales usually works with two systems, a CRM system and an ERP system. In this example, the ERP system SAP S/4HANA and the CRM modules of Microsoft Dynamics are connected. As far as the systems are not integrated, the potential of clean data is lost and the costs for the manual effort due to the doubled system maintenance increase significantly. The problem can be solved effortlessly, securely and quickly using the Marini Integration Platform. The HubEngine and the DataEngine are used for this purpose.
