Atlanta, GA (Vocus) December 8, 2009
Edgenet, Inc., a leading provider of data, advertising and selling solutions, today announced that ImproveSmart, an innovative and new distribution channel for contractors and home improvement professionals, has selected Edgenet's Big Hammer Data Services for its online product content and to expand the available product assortment to its members.
"We were looking for a methodology of receiving concise and accurate data that is ready for use," said Sean Lee, Chairman and Founder of ImproveSmart. "The industry as a whole is frustrated with poor data quality. The biggest benefit of our new relationship with Edgenet is the quality level of the data and the fact that it will be as close to perfect as we can possibly get. The agreement allows us to receive daily updates, keeping the information on our website accurate and up-to-date. We are very excited because Edgenet gives us entry into some of the finest suppliers in the world."
"Companies realize that in order to compete in a highly competitive environment, that rich content delivered in a timely manner is critical to business success," said Joe Czarnecky, Executive Vice President of Edgenet. "Acquiring rich product content is no longer a competitive advantage; it’s the basic prerequisite to play in today’s environment. This relationship not only increases the quality and quantity of products available to ImproveSmart's members, but also increases the product distribution and value for our suppliers that are already in the Edgenet Network. Our data expertise in conjunction with ImproveSmart’s industry knowledge will quickly provide both companies with increased product distribution and availability."
Rich product data is critical to many industries and the addition of ImproveSmart to the Edgenet Network increases product distribution for the hardlines industry. Streamlined data solutions decrease the cost of data collection, management and distribution while increasing sales opportunities.
