Chambers Ireland and Dun & Bradstreet have launched a service called ‘Chamber Intelligence’ designed to equip new business start-ups with the knowledge and skills necessary to trade safely as well as grow their businesses.
The service provides support to Chamber members either in the domestic or international markets across three areas: helping to safeguard against bad debt, helping to find new customers and helping to research new markets.
“This year has witnessed a 6pc increase in the rate of business start-ups. This is great news for Irish business and the new wave of entrepreneurs that are out there building new companies for the future,” said Ian Talbot, Chambers Ireland chief executive.
“Given the ongoing challenges in the domestic economy, many Irish businesses are seeking to safeguard and grow new markets both in Ireland and overseas.”
Chris Laws, general manager, Dun & Bradstreet, said the tool was designed to provide real value to members of Chambers Ireland, by helping businesses make informed decisions on customer acquisitions, as well as managing their credit risk.
