About Red Flag Alert

We help businesses use data insights to grow revenue and protect their company from financial risk

In 2004, we started life as a way to help identify new business opportunities for an insolvency company. Due to our unique ‘health rating’ system and 180,000 daily data updates, it was incredibly successful.

So successful that we quickly realised the intelligence provided by Red Flag Alert could be vital to other businesses, too.

In 2009 we launched our software as a commercial product. Since then, we have helped thousands of companies use data to help them drive growth, avoid risk and remain compliant. We’re now trusted by 1000s of businesses, from large FTSE 100 financial services organisations to SMEs.
