Make or Break ¨Preventive Feasibility Check¨ Service


Will check the status of any company and/or persons

A service that developed (and is still developing) over the years in this very fast changing online world.

We and our clients run on a day to day base in with more and more potentially great clients. Luckily most of them are.
However, there are a lot of them who are doing their upmost best to be not so honest. They use all kind of methods going from fishing e-mails up to complete fake companies.


Lots of things can be done to prevent a lot of damage on fore-hand

Things you can do to prevent damage of non-paying clients or fake partners, such as:

  • Never deliver without payment guarantee
  • Be very care full if the credit card address is different from the delivery address.
  • Pay lots of attention when the payment method is from a different country than the nationality of the (person) company.
  • Check if they pick up the phone when you call them.
  • Check how they found you.
  • Besides lots of other things ¨When it’s too good to be through, it probably is¨.


Our ¨Feasibility Client Check¨

Is focussing on what can find online concerning the potential new client.


Besides the standard routine information such as Chamber of Commerce information we check amongst others:

  • Credit check
  • Determine risk ratings
  • Identify safety hazards
  • Name of company and related companies (in past and present)Persons behind the company (in past and present)
  • What shows up in internet media such as: Blogs, posts, Social media channels (all in past and present)
  • How many social friends, what do they do, what do they blog or post
  • Are there court cases running


Status of the internet (URL) where we do find status information such as:

  • Age of the page (URL)
  • Owner of the page (URL)
  • Reliability of the URL
  • Meta Information
  • Host Information
  • DNS Records
  • Search Engines Data
  • Google Page Rank Data
  • Google Page Speed Data
  • Google Safe Browsing Data
  • Web of Trust Data
  • Site Advisor Rating Data
  • Alexa data
  • SEOMoz Data
  • WHOIS Information
  • Social Data
  • Update Information to the Database (how often)


  • Check of given address (status of environment)
  • Check of the found addresses against the given
  • Check against the real website owner


How do we do it

We know the ins and outs of the internet (since 1994).


This besides the language problems. Our team is build up with native speakers in the languages: Spanish, Catalan, French, German, Dutch, English, Italian. When other languages are required we probably have them already in our network.


When a person just starts searching from his home country to an other country the information shown can and most of the will be very different than when you are in the specific country. To overcome this problem we  search in the different countries by using VPN connections.
This way we find what is known concerning the company or person in the specific country.


VPN makes the system believe that you are actual in the country which is in reality the truth since it concerns server connections that go on the internet in the specific country.


For example: we are based in Barcelona. We can freely surf on the internet. At least that´s what Catalan people would like to believe.

The truth however, is a little different. From of Catalonia you can for instance surf to google.com, but, you will be re-directed to google.es which is Spanish.
Result: what you find is what google.es (Spain) wants to show to the Catalan people.
This besides that the official country code for Catalonia is .cat.


A other example is China who is blocking lots of web sites.


By the way, Google it self is a great example: they show you what they think you are looking for by all your earlier searches. We clean our computers before searches and we use lots of other search tools than just Google.
