Waltham, MA (PRWEB) April 20, 2006
Zoom Information, Inc., (http://www.zoominfo.com), the search engine for discovering people, companies and relationships, continued five years of rapidly accelerating growth and continued profitability in the first quarter of 2006. ZoomInfo passed the 30-million summary mark in the same record-setting quarter in which it also signed more than 160 new enterprise customers for ZoomInfo PowerSearch. BASF Corporation, BearingPoint, Chicago Mercantile Exchange, Cingular Wireless, Citigroup, Deloitte & Touche, Hyatt Corp., Jack in the Box, Inc., McDonald's Corporation, PG&E Corp, SilkRoad Technologies, Skanska USA Building and TIAA-CREF are among the new customers added.
“ZoomInfo includes almost ten times the number of people as our next largest competitor making it the de-facto source of information about business people,” said Bryan Burdick, COO of Zoom Information Inc. “Additionally, the major search engines deliver ZoomInfo summaries at the top of their people search results. As a result, thousands of users add their own information to ZoomInfo every week so that they can be found when opportunity is looking – in the form of a new job or business opportunity; they want to be where people are searching.”
ZoomInfo summaries are rapidly becoming the industry standard reference when it comes to people’s work history. ZoomInfo has entered into agreements with numerous companies to provide its summaries either directly integrated into or linked to leading consumer sites. For example, LinkedIn, a business-focused social networking site, and A9.com, the search engine that researches and builds innovative search technologies for its own site and for Amazon.com, both signed with Zoom Information.
ZoomInfo allows users to create content for their own summaries, and to comment and suggest changes to others’ summaries. With more than 30% of the Fortune 100, nine of the top ten executive recruiting firms and thousands of other customers using ZoomInfo, business people realize the need to be found and presented at their best.
“ZoomInfo’s unequaled breadth and depth, and ease of use, have made it a must-have tool for recruiters,” said Mike Souza, vice president of sales for Zoom Information. “Additionally, JobCast, our comprehensive candidate marketing platform we launched in December has really taken off, further increasing the return on ZoomInfo investment for our customers.”
