W2 Data EKYB UK 009

About the service

This is a "Know Your Business" service.

This service can be used in two ways, Firstly you can enter a company name i.e. "W2GlobalData" in the NameQuery field and you will get a list of companies that match that search term, along with a small summary of information. The second way is used to obtain a full company report, which contains a much more extensive set of data. This can be done by calling the service and supplying the CompanyId QueryOption, with a company identifier. The company identifier can be obtained from the first call to this service.

Product Code: W2-DATA-EKYB-UK-009

Does this service leave a credit search Footprint? No
