Premium content providers link up via the Orbis database


There is an increasing appetite for information on the people linked to companies.

Bureau van Dijk (BvD), the leading provider of company information, has this month signed a new agreement with Leadership Directories, Inc. (LDI), a premier B2B information services company which provides profile and contact information for the most influential people and organizations in the U.S. BvD’s Orbis database, which has information on 175 million companies and 95 million individuals across the globe, now has links from its contacts’ reports to the relevant records in LDI’s platform. Orbis also now has director reports enriched with LDI’s content for 25,000 entities. 615,000 decision-makers have a record in both Orbis and LDI and are now linked. 370,000 of these contacts are new to Orbis as a result of this collaboration.

This new agreement also means that customers with access to both services can now use Orbis to research companies in detail, find individuals associated with companies as employees, on boards or in advisory roles, and then access LDI’s premium profile information on specific key and influential people. This new service is offered alongside BvD’s existing functionality and data, which already screens individuals for PEPs and Sanctions associations and shows if, and how, individuals are linked.

Andy Cowley, BvD’s vice president of its Americas operation said, “There is an increasing appetite for information on the people linked to companies. LDI is a leader in this field and its information is the ideal complement to Orbis. Our users will be able to get access to respected content in a way that helps them work more efficiently.”

Gretchen Teichgraeber, President & CEO of LDI added, “We have a long association with Bureau van Dijk who has developed software platforms for our databases for nearly 30 years. Linking our systems together like this is a new initiative and one that I’m sure will benefit our mutual customers. We’re also very pleased to be contributing our content to enrich the Orbis database.”

BvD’s Orbis is available on trial from http://www.bvdinfo.com. Orbis users who are also clients of LDI will automatically get access to the LDI reports via a one-off login. Orbis users who are not currently clients of LDI will find a free trial link within the Orbis interface so they can explore this option further.
