Costa Mesa, CA (PRWEB) April 22, 2014
Starting today, information on businesses is a click away on CompanyEgg — the latest business search engine launched from Orange County, California.
CompanyEgg is a start-up dedicated to small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), to the world’s biggest brands. While most information is easily accessible through giant search engines, consumers are still presented innaccurate data on sites cluttered with ads and slow response times.
What sets CompanyEgg apart from other search engines is its simple, user-friendly design that provides customers immediate access to the data they are looking for. A single-page listing for each business — free from advertisements — ensures searchers will be presented fast and reliable data. An interactive interface will also allow business owners to promote their brand in a way that works best for their business while giving them the ability to update and augment their data as they please.
A couple of tech-savvy entrepreneurs have created what promises to be one of the world’s largest data platforms to help connect businesses with their customers while also addressing the shortcomings of existing offerings. CompanyEgg Co-founder Sean Rigo conceptualized the building of a business search engine together with fellow co-founder and programmer Michael Halvorsen. The two started collaborative work after their chance meeting at an Internet industry conference in 2012. Both noticed how online searches for data on businesses is a cumbersome experience for consumers. So, in April 2013, they decided to create CompanyEgg and began compiling data from over 30 data sources. Today, on its launch date, CompanyEgg now has access to over 25 million businesses in the U.S. alone.
“We are excited to announce the launch of the CompanyEgg search engine,” Rigo said. “CompanyEgg will revolutionize publishing by helping consumers find accurate local business information to serve their needs.”
“We are very pleased with the result. Everything came into place right from the very beginning,” Halvorsen said. “Cutting-edge technology such as Microsoft Azure Cloud, NodeJS and Elastic Search has helped us publish what could be the largest and most comprehensive business search engine on the web today.”
CompanyEgg intends to expand its data on local businesses immediately following its launch.
“After our U.S. business data index is built, we will focus on obtaining the most comprehensive data for international businesses, starting with the Top 20 countries measured by GDP,” Rigo noted.
Rigo and Halvorsen commit CompanyEgg to accuracy and ease of use as the company’s tenets. Every data point published on the business search engine will be cross-referenced, matched and sifted through dozens of other datasets to provide the most reliable and updated information available online.
The resulting business listing will help business owners connect with their customers. Meanwhile, customers will benefit from access to accurate business information with other public data points.
CompanyEgg’s corporate office is right in the heart of Orange County’s premiere start-up location, Innovate OC. Located at 3050 Pullman St., Costa Mesa, Calif., which is the first innovation center of its kind in Orange County.
