Jinfo looked at Bureau van Dijk's Fame, a company information database focused on the UK and Ireland, a few years ago and in this product review we take an in-depth look at the company's flagship service, Orbis, a global company database that's used by government and financial institutions, accountants and corporations in a wide range of industries.

This review:

  • Introduces parent company, Moody's Corporation, and gives an overview of Orbis including its key advantages, target audience, and specific use-cases, the value it offers, and contact details

  • Takes a closer look at some of its key enhancements, including a significant overhaul of some of its most popular features and functions, and its more modern, intuitive interface, as well as future developments

  • Looks at its content, particularly the breadth and depth of company data coverage, which includes data on over 310 million companies around the world with information drawn from more than 160 information providers

  • Tests the platform's search technology, including an appraisal of its newly designed user interface and specialist content and news search functionality

  • Highlights the newly revamped help area and the increased user support that is available within the product

  • Outlines the pricing structure and identifies competitors, including Hoovers from Dun & Bradstreet, and DueDil, and highlights where Orbis differs

  • Gives a comprehensive appraisal of the platform overall, highlighting areas that appealed to our reviewer and those that could be improved.
