Data is our world.
Your network is our mission.

Where we come from – and where we want to go

Palturai is an independent start-up headed by leaders of German credit bureaus.

We connect businesses.

Our vision is a global network which establishes connections between companies, institutions and decision-makers and makes them transparent. This enables our customers to leverage this wealth of data for their own businesses and gain unique, profitable insights, where the knowledge of connections and inter-dependencies of business partners proves invaluable in many ways.

Since 2014, we have been pursuing our goals with cutting-edge technologies, strong foundations, and highly motivated people. Contributing to this are our personal connections with great colleagues, great customers and great partners.

Our customers: Who we work for

Palturai customers come from many industries. Not only in banking and insurance, but companies both large and small in areas such as technology, industrial, and publishing benefit from our unique solutions as well. The spectrum ranges from major banking corporations to medium-sized companies all the way down to small television stations.

We have noticed a shift in our solution interest – while most customers were initially interested in functionalities related to sales & marketing, there is now more emphasis on compliance, risk, and fraud. We would be happy to share references with you upon request.

Our history: How it all began

For a long time, the four founders of Palturai held management positions at credit bureaus or other companies dealing with data. In projects with customers and partners, they repeatedly came up against the limits of object-related data storage.

Many questions led to the first idea

Why doesn’t a company know that a target customer has connections to an existing customer? Why doesn’t it automatically see that a new customer may be involved with a company that engaged in fraudulent activities? There are so many good reasons to know business relationships – and integrate this knowledge into processes in a standardized way. Especially since countless pieces of information are publicly available, but not intelligently linked and easily retrievable.

Modern technologies turned the idea into reality

Through expert involvement and intensive examination of technical feasibility, the idea of networking economic data transformed from a great vision into the foundation for a completely new company.

Because new ideas need a new beginning.
