Dun & Bradstreet Data Added to PRO
Charlottetown, November 24, 2015 – iWave Information Systems is thrilled to announce that they have partnered with Dun & Bradstreet (D&B) to bring corporate and executive information into the Prospect Research Online (PRO) product. Gerry Lawless, President & CEO of iWave Information Systems, believes that the addition of Dun & Bradstreet data will be key to PRO clients. “We chose D&B because of the breadth of its people (150 million) and company (85 million) profiles. Almost 2.5 billion records in total are available, of which 75% are International. These records will round out our 360search, PROfiles,and PROscore features nicely,” said Gerry.
PRO is an online search tool that helps non profits fundraise more efficiently. It bundles wealth and philanthropic background on individuals, companies, and foundations to help fundraising professionals determine who to ask, how much to ask for, and when to ask.
Prior to adding Dun & Bradstreet data, PRO brought users information such as real estate, wealth, stock, charitable giving history, and political giving information. With the addition of Dun & Bradstreet data, PRO will also deliver detailed US, Canadian, and International information on corporate executives and the publicly or privately owned businesses they work for. The information found in Dun & Bradstreet identifies contact information for both the individual and the company, as well as personal information like title, age, and gender, and company information such as business type, sales volume, and number of employees.
Using Dun & Bradstreet data PRO clients can:
- Search individuals and receive information such as home address, gender, age, company they work for, title, email address, and phone number.
- Search companies and receive information such as address, phone number, business type, sales volume, number of employees, and sector.
- Build a list of prospects based on their location, age, or gender.
- Build a list of prospects at certain companies based on the company’s sector, sales, location, etc.
The announcement that PRO will now house Dun & Bradstreet data has been met with rave reviews. “Not only are our clients ecstatic that they will now have access to this extremely valuable information on prospects and companies, but a number of prospective clients have also expressed keen interest because of this new addition,” says A.J. Pickens, Vice President, Sales at iWave Information Systems.
