The New COVID Industry Impact Scale

Latest research and forecasts all agree that different industries will see different levels of impact throughout the COVID-19 crisis. Certain industries linked to core needs will have a limited or no negative impact while other industries linked to social interaction will suffer substantially greater challenges. CRIFVision-net have looked at all industries and graded them by impact in order for you to make informed decisions in a more unpredictable environment.

Industry Impact Within Credit Report

The Credit Report is an invaluable tool, especially when performing due diligence on stakeholders such as customers and suppliers and includes a wealth of information that is not usually included in company documents. Thousands can be saved when checking a credit report before extending credit. CRIF Vision-net has over 30 years' experience in the Irish Market and has created the ultimate Credit Report and Scorecard to allow your business to make the most informed decision possible.

On top of this we have now included our COVID Industry Impact Score for every company. This score is based on the industry which the company operates in and is marked on a scale of - 'No Impact', 'Low', 'Significant' or 'Severe'.

Our analysts have been working hard to provide our customers with the most up to date and relevant information surrounding COVID and how all industries have been affected. Over 600 NACE codes have been given a score on our scale based upon accurate and reliable research and data.
