April 26, 2005 - CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Zoom Information Inc., (www.zoominfo.com), the search engine that extracts and summarizes people information, today reported continued profitability and rapid sales growth in the first quarter of 2005. Zoom Information, formerly Eliyon Technologies, added a new free people search engine in March, driving an 8,000% surge in traffic to the company's Web destination as millions used ZoomInfo to investigate and manage their online presence. During the same quarter the company continued its strong performance in its established enterprise marketplace, signing 162 customers including 20th Century Fox, Boston Celtics, Chevy Chase Bank, Clear Channel Communications, Clorox, KPMG, Liberty Mutual, Limited Brands, Qualcomm and Sybase.
"The launch of ZoomInfo has catapulted the company from a very successful business research tool into a new search player with broad appeal to virtually everyone in today's workforce," said Gary Halliwell, president of Zoom Information. "Offering a subset of the same tools that made ZoomInfo a preferred choice of Fortune 500 companies is now building a strong brand affinity for ZoomInfo with individual businesspeople, and generating a corresponding positive effect on B2B sales efforts as a result."
ZoomInfo allows users to monitor and manage their Web identities by searching for a summarized version of what the Web says about them, which they can then register, update and correct. Searching for summaries of colleagues, business partners, customers, potential employers, job candidates or even dates is fast and easy with the new search engine.
