ZoomInfo Moves to Daily Data Updates to Increase Freshness and Accuracy of Information on Nearly 36 Million Professionals

Business Information Search Engine Continues to Improve PowerSearch 2007

May 9, 2007 – Waltham, Mass. – At this week's Kennedy Information's Recruiting 2007 Conference and Expo, ZoomInfo™ announced it will update the business information search engine's data on a daily basis beginning at the end of the month to provide ZoomInfo customers with the freshest data possible. ZoomInfo continually crawls the Business Web, and then aggregates and organizes the information into easy-to-read profiles on people and companies. Until now, the legacy architecture resulted in ZoomInfo's information being updated every five to six weeks. With this new architecture in place, ZoomInfo will have the ability and capacity to crawl hundreds of millions of pages daily, and present the new information to ZoomInfo users each day.

"The Internet is the largest and most up-to-date source for business information, and in May ZoomInfo will parallel that real-time freshness of data," said Bryan Burdick, ZoomInfo's COO. "While our customers see great value in our in-depth information on companies, people and industries, a common request has been decreasing the lag time in updating the information. We listened and are thrilled that we can now provide the industry's freshest information to the people who rely on it the most. At the same time, we're getting a lot smarter about how we crawl the web, and believe our customers will also see improvements in the quality of our data in the coming months."

ZoomInfo also announced enhancements to its flagship product, ZoomInfo PowerSearch 2007. Based on customer feedback throughout the first months of 2007, ZoomInfo released the following updates to PowerSearch:

  • Customized Data Management: PowerSearch users can now configure how data is exported from PowerSearch, such as what pieces of information to include, and in what order. ZoomInfo also made minor adjustments throughout PowerSearch to help simplify navigation and account customization.
  • More Powerful Workflow: Customers can now search using multiple fields in saved projects, and can now quickly identify people who have worked at the same companies as a specific person. Additionally, recruiters using ZoomInfo's JobCast email campaign tool can now track email delivery rates to better track each campaign's ROI.
  • More Company Information: ZoomInfo company profiles now include M&A activity for that company, as well as displaying ranking on prominent lists, such as the Fortune 100, Russell 3000, etc.

"We're constantly soliciting customer feedback to ensure that our customers are getting the most value possible out of PowerSearch," said Michael Souza, vice president of sales. "We understand that our recruiting customers are looking to streamline their efforts to target, communicate with and qualify potential candidates. ZoomInfo's PowerSearch 2007 is designed to enable our customers to more quickly and easily find useful information about people and organizations on the Web. We believe the recent improvements to PowerSearch, combined with daily updates for the freshest information possible, will give recruiters further competitive advantages in their passive candidate sourcing strategies."

ZoomInfo PowerSearch's customers include 35 percent of the Fortune 100, 20 percent of the Fortune 500 and all of the top 20 executive recruiting companies – all searching for fresh and comprehensive information about companies and people. The updated version of ZoomInfo PowerSearch is available now. Subscription-based pricing starts at $5,950 per user per year.
