How do we know which companies in China or Russia are legitimate
We have been selling business data solutions worldwide for over 10 years. We started with Russian data sources. Around 3 years ago we opened our Chinese branch. We built a partnership with 100+ sourcing companies, quality control firms and foreign exporters to document all the risks of working with China and then hired local investigators. Next we have built a working relationship with official Chinese data sources. Today we can check legitimacy and reliability of your Chinese or Russian suppliers. Every week we help 30+ foreign companies to make key business decisions. One in four companies that uses our reports ends up changing their supplier to a more reliable one.
