Callcredit was formed in November 2000 following a number of business acquisitions. Three years later, in 2003, information businesses, Callcredit, EuroDirect and GMAP Consulting were brought together under the umbrella name of the Skipton Information Group. A year later the Group opened a regional office in Japan.
In 2007, the Group further added to its product and service offering by acquiring Legatio and DecisionMetrics which was followed a year later by the acquisition of the communications company, Broadsystem. In June of 2008 the company rebranded to Callcredit Information Group.
Over the next few years the Group continued to expand rapidly and made a series of additional acquisitions, including pbl (process benchmarking limited), The Trading Floor, Latitude and TenantID.
The Group has continued to grow with the formation of GMAP Japan KK in 2011, which was closely followed by Noddle Limited and in 2012 Callcredit Operations UAB (in Lithuania). 2013/2014 saw further expansion of the Group with the acquisition of targeted online consumer data and leads provider, Lifestyles Online, the opening of GMAP China, and to extend its public sector offering further, the acquisition of Coactiva.
In March 2016 Callcredit bought customer experience specialist, Numero, and in September 2016 device fraud protection firm, Recipero.
