Where does BizDirect collect data from?
BizDirect gathers its data, insights, and connections from more than 10,000 sources and 17 million company and 50 millions contact records, using multiple data gathering methodologies to take advantage of the strengths of each. The data is curated from many different types of media: news, specialty data vendors, social media, web, crowd-sourcing, and more. Our reputable sources include: corporate filing authorities, local credit agencies, LinkedIn, Facebook, user input, and many more.
How does BizDirect collect its data?
BizDirect obtains the data for its Public Profiles in several ways including:
- Proprietary machine learning: automated machine learning constantly views corporate websites, press releases, news articles, corporate filings, job postings, and other online sources for data about industries, locations, revenue, and other company attributes. Targeted keyword algorithms help further focus the searches, while the system also looks for technographic information on 17 million site domains each day.
- Human Research and verification: Machine learning alone cannot verify millions of data points, so an in-house human research and development team focuses on continuous improvement of the database. The team’s meticulous efforts verify algorithm performance; grow data about contacts, funding, and conferences; and unearth inside information about companies that can help sales teams get ahead of prospective buyers.
- Third party data providers: Trusted, third-party sources supplement automated data aggregation to glean information from public companies, merger and acquisition activity, government data sources, and social media feeds.
How is BizDirect different from other data/list providers and professional networking sites?
BizDirect is the only B2B data provider to deliver the powerful combination of data, insights, and connections. We are more than a data provider; we are a technology platform that provides data and intelligence solutions to solve sales, marketing, and customer data management challenges. Our comprehensive B2B company and contact data is the most reliable in the Asia region
How often does BizDirect validate its company/contact data?
BizDirect’s data is updated frequently. Some data updates happen in real-time, while others are dependent on the update frequency of the underlying data sources (daily, weekly, and monthly updates). For example, social profiles, contact emails, business news are updated in real-time whilst other data such as financial performance, key people, website, etc. are update monthly or quarterly.
What if I find information I know is wrong?
While BizDirect’s technology is the primary reason for our industry-leading data quality, no dataset can ever be 100% accurate. Data simply changes too fast. Which is why we provide a way for users to submit corrections or requests for research using a “Wrong Info” flag on every company and contact record.
Each flagged piece of data is hand-researched, validated, and augmented with additional data elements by a BizDirect data team member
What if I can’t find a company or contact I’m looking for?
BizDirect is committed to delivering data, insights, and connections that are relevant for B2B commerce, while reducing data “noise.” To achieve that, we focus on providing contacts that are key decision-makers and influencers, and companies with five or more employees. Non-manager roles, very small businesses, branch offices, and franchises are generally not included in our data.
We deliver company and contact information for all public companies worldwide, and most private companies with five or more employees, with strongest coverage in the Asia markets — where we have almost 90% coverage.
Still, if you would like to add a contact or company (and are unable to find the company when you view results), you can do so easily by sending us an email with the details. BizDirect validates each submission before publishing.
Is BizDirect’s data equally accurate around the countries?
The simple answer is No. BizDirect delivers real-time information about B2B companies and contacts around the world. Relatively speaking, you will find more data from Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore, Japan than other countries. This is because data sources from these countries are relatively less mature, meaning there is less data available and what is available often doesn’t meet our standards for reliability. The result is that our data volume in these countries is low, so quality can be maintained and you can have confidence in our data.
As new data sources become available, we will continue to expand our coverage, when we can do so with confidence.
What value does BizDirect’s data and intelligence provide versus what is freely available on the web?
Company research on the web is very time consuming, can give you conflicting and inaccurate results, and is lacking many kinds of data we are able to gather from non-web sources. In addition, human research cannot keep up with today’s organizational changes and business issues, a problem we solve with our algorithmic technology that can do so in real-time.
Bottom line: BizDirect saves you time, provides more complete, reliable, relevant data and insights, and alerts you to business triggers, so you can take action in a confident and timely manner. The result is larger, faster pipelines, more effective engagement, higher win rates, and increased revenue.
Is BizDirect data legitimate?
Yes. BizDirect only aggregates business-related data of a company (address, website, key people) and people (work email, social profile, position, etc) from publicly available sources or through our third party data providers.
Information of this type is different from more sensitive information like browser history, health or financial information, or any other information about a person in a family or household capacity - which BizDirect does not collect or share.
For some personal data i.e. work email, phone, social link, the search is conducted in real time whenever there is a request through a network of 3rd party services providers. We do not own or process this data.
We have internal processes dedicated to proactively monitoring our data and research practices to ensure alignment with all relevant data protection and privacy laws, such as GDPR.
