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:
"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."
