Vienna, VA (Vocus) April 28, 2010
As marketers continue to find ever increasing ways to generate a return on investment, verifying who is on the other end of the transaction is key to improving profitability whether you are a lead buyer or lead seller. Today, TARGUSinfo, the trusted leader in On-Demand Insight® linking billions of consumer and business attributes in real time, announced that by making one of its most significant investments in the company’s 17 year history, it has significantly improved its market leading On-Demand Lead Verification® and On-Demand Lead Scoring solutions by increasing the authoritative linkage to “right party” contactable leads by 30 percent.
By re-architecting and improving linkages at the identity layer (i.e., name, address, and phone) combined with the addition of unrivaled authoritative mobile phone coverage, the days of struggling with confidence over contactable leads are over.
“We understand that both our lead generation and lead purchasing clients need greater confidence to optimize their business and consumer experiences,” said Paul McConville, vice president, TARGUSinfo. “We listened and embarked on one of the largest engineering and data development efforts in our company’s history. The result for our clients is an ability to provide authoritative scoring and verification linkages to more than 219 million mobile numbers, as well as reset the bar for data accuracy, currency and coverage in the marketplace.”
“It’s clear that consumers are “cutting the cord” and using their mobile phone numbers as their primary number more than ever,” said Murthy Nukala, CEO of Adchemy. “Nowhere is this more evident than the online lead generation industry. With the advent of TARGUSinfo’s ability to provide such strong linkages and now with their unrivaled mobile phone coverage, we’re now able to verify with a higher degree of confidence that our leads continue to be of the highest quality.”

The TARGUSinfo investment in new data improves the authoritative linkages TARGUSinfo makes and arms buyers and sellers with the ability to monetize even more leads.
