RapidRatings and Resilinc announced Tuesday the two companies have partnered to integrate RapidRatings’ Financial Health Rating (FHR™) scores within Resilinc’s WAVZ platform, according to a press release.

Kobe Scandal 

Kobe Steel revealed Tuesday that its data fraud scandal stretches back five decades and that there were additional cases of undisclosed cheating, Reuters reports. The company’s CEO will step down in light of the news. Kobe admitted last year to “supplying products with falsified specifications to about 500 customers, throwing global supply chains into turmoil.” 

Services Sector
