Vienna, VA (Vocus) February 25, 2010
In an October 2009 Forrester Research report titled The Intelligent Approach to Customer Intelligence, Andreas Weigend, Amazon.com’s former chief scientist, said “In 2009, more data will be generated by individuals than in the entire history of mankind through 2008.”
That’s why today, TARGUSinfo, the trusted leader in On-Demand Insight® about prospects and customers, announced that it has deepened its investment in innovation, offices and personnel to further help businesses capitalize on the massive amount of data available.
“We closed 2009 with great success by helping our customers achieve improved audience targeting, better customer experiences, higher conversion rates and increased customer lifetime values,” said George Moore, CEO and chairman, TARGUSinfo. “However, with the explosion of data continuing at a breakneck pace, our customers continue to choose TARGUSinfo because of our core ability to link predictive attributes to consumers and businesses in real time. We’ve committed considerable engineering man hours and financial resources to offer our clients even greater innovation through our verification, scoring and online targeting solutions.”
Doing What Others Can’t—Taking a Giant Innovation Leap in Lead Scoring & Lead Verification

TARGUSinfo On-Demand Lead Verification® and On-Demand Lead Scoring customers are achieving even greater marketing results with the latest enhancement of TARGUSinfo’s data repository. The new, expanded repository includes additional authoritative sources so customers can now verify leads with email addresses and mobile numbers — significantly enhancing lead intelligence.

“Enhancing verification and analytics capabilities by increasing access to verified mobile numbers and emails addresses is a remarkable and unmatched industry achievement,” said Anna Zornosa, executive vice president of The Cobalt Group and general manager of its Dealix division, Dealix. “Since TARGUSinfo has enhanced its repository, our lead verification match rates have increased significantly.”
Placing Powerful Online Audience Data in the Hands of Advertisers, Agencies and Ad Networks
Launched in 2009, AdAdvisor® from TARGUSinfo is the first solution that brings rich, verified offline attributes to the online advertising ecosystem.
