Bethesda, Md. (PRWEB) November 14, 2005
Carroll Publishing, a leading publisher of print and online directories and databases of government decision-makers, received a "2005 Models of Excellence" award from InfoCommerce Group, a market analyst and consulting firm serving the online publishing industry.
The "Models of Excellence" award honors Best of Breed Information Products that demonstrate unique content, combining top-quality data with world class software to effectively distribute information online. Winners received their awards at the InfoCommerce conference November 7-8 in Philadelphia.
“Carroll Publishing continues to push the envelope with its effort to define and deliver high-value subscription data products, of which GovSearch is a shining example”, states InfoCommerce Group’s evaluation.
GovSearch, a database of federal, state, county and municipal decision-makers, manages 700,000 government contacts and facilities. GovSearch is enhanced with photos and biographies, offers email addresses and agency URL’s, and allows searching by name, title and office across the entire database. Federal grant programs and Defense R&D programs have been linked to their program management offices to easily identify management and program lines of authority.
“The piece de resistance of the GovSearch service is the ability for users to see personnel records expressed as organizational charts, all constructed on a real-time basis”, said Russell Perkins, President of InfoCommerce Group. This is an invaluable feature for anyone working with complex agency bureaucracies.
Daily updating, a news service devoted to government personnel announcements, and other specialized data elements, all contribute to the full power of the GovSearch family.
"The 'Models of Excellence' award highlights our success at maintaining a reliable, current, comprehensive resource for searching government executives at the federal, state, county and municipal levels of government," said Tom Carroll, president and founder of Carroll Publishing. "Our staff and proprietary publishing system enable us to provide the greatest coverage and the most current contact information for this continually-changing environment. Furthermore, we integrate program information, maps, bios, pictures, and organization charts right into the user’s desktop access."
