Graydon Creditsafe ratings in third-party catalogue
In the third-party catalogue, you will see the Graydon Creditsafe ratings of the third parties that you have put under monitoring. When you hover over the rating, you will see a pop-up with a brief explanation of the rating.

Alerts and notifications
When the Graydon Creditsafe rating drops, you will get an instant notification by the platform's virtual officer. There are two related alerts:

  • A slight decrease of the financial credit rating of a third-party
  • A significant decrease of the financial credit rating of a third-party

In both situations, the virtual officer will ask you if you would like to see the Graydon Creditsafe panel. In case of a significant decrease of the rating, the virtual officer will ask you whether an assessment should be initiated to the third-party.
