Aug 29, 2012 — Waltham, Mass. — Business information provider ZoomInfo reached a new milestone today, expanding to include detailed, just-verified profiles of 65 million businesspeople and six million businesses. The new totals represent annual growth of more than 20 percent in the company's comprehensive coverage..
The increase in its B2B data gives ZoomInfo's customers — marketers, sales professionals and recruiters at companies like Google, Oracle and Ranstad — a constant source of up-to-date, deep information about prospects, including middle managers and other decision makers and small- to medium-sized companies, both public and private.
Yonatan Stern, ZoomInfo's founder, CEO and chief scientist, said the company has been extending its Web crawling and data extraction platform by running millions of real-time queries of major search engines and integrating the results into its data streams.
"Our advancements and recent data growth are examples of the investments ZoomInfo makes to provide business information that's second to none," said Stern. "It is not enough that the profiles integrate data from many sources. We aim to have all the information available on the Web to create the most accurate and complete information on each company and every business person."
The company's popular ZoomInfo Community Edition product also supported the increase in profiles. It provides free access to ZoomInfo in exchange for a user's automatic contribution of current business contacts. Each week, 50,000 users contribute more than 200,000 new contacts and updates, helping ZoomInfo constantly improve its coverage.
