Vision-net can be used by jobseekers to research potential employers and by entrepreneurs to investigate industry competitors (each company search includes a link to the top 20 companies in that industry). Existing business owners can source information to help manage business risks and keep up to date with their suppliers and competitors. Consumers can also use the service to investigate any companies they may do business with.
Information is sourced directly from the CRO in Dublin and the UK Companies House as well as the Irish Courts, Office of the Examiners and the Insolvency Service of Ireland. All information is from publicly available records. Vision-net itself is based in Dublin.
