Batavia Research (BR) serves business information and financial service providers with digital firmographics that reduces the cost of verification, improves accuracy, expands “thin-files”, and augments risk and performance insights. This is achieved via BR’s proprietary technology that discovers, gathers and characterizes a company’s digital presence and marketing activities. The Business Health Indicator (BHI) is BR’s premier insight. The BRI is a cutting-edge alternative data indicator designed to characterize the going-concern of a company in the absence of financials or public records. This approach provides expanded insights into private businesses and helps verify and enrich thin-file firmographics. Underpinning BR is a highly automated, scalable platform that evaluates the digital presence and marketing activities of companies and brands. A language agnostic approach provides global reach and insights. Data is updated weekly and transformed into numerous metrics, historic dimensions, and various proxies and indices. Partners of BR have access to their data via import/export or API data streaming capabilities.
