Integrating ZoomInfo's company information into Compete’s website traffic profiles allows us to present even more valuable information to Compete.com users looking for competitive intelligence on individual companies.

ZoomInfo™ has launched a dedicated developer zone to provide several tools for developers to create applications leveraging ZoomInfo’s semantic search capabilities and people and company information. The developer zone, http://developer.zoominfo.com , features ZoomInfo’s public API, full documentation, a support forum and blog, and is a showcase for newly created ZoomInfo API applications. Companies including Amazon A9, Compete and Xing are already working with the beta version of the API.

ZoomInfo is a business information search engine that indexes the Business Web to quickly find information about companies and people. With the public API, developers can now create applications using many of the search engine’s company and people search capabilities, as well as ZoomInfo’s people and company profiles and company competitor information.

"Earlier this summer, Compete and ZoomInfo built applications using each other's API to cross-promote data and drive traffic," said Jay Meattle, product manager at Compete. "Integrating ZoomInfo's company information into Compete’s website traffic profiles allows us to present even more valuable information to Compete.com users looking for competitive intelligence on individual companies."

“We realized that there are countless uses for the type of business information that ZoomInfo provides on companies, people and industries,” said Russell Glass, vice president of products and marketing at ZoomInfo. “By providing a public API, our goal is to encourage new and innovative uses of our data and search capabilities. We look forward to seeing how creative the development community will be.”

Full terms and conditions of the API access are available on the site. For more information, please visit: http://developer.zoominfo.com.
