IEI is proud to announce its latest technology partnership with local software firm Datafiniti. This four-year old company has the ambitious agenda of being the search engine for data on companies, people, and products. They spun off from the Houston-based 80 Legs project, which bills itself as the world’s most powerful web crawler.
Via Datafiniti, IEI is now offering a “better, cheaper, faster” NAICS industry code append service. Just give us a list of domain names for companies in your database and we’ll append the closest relevant NAICS code. The service works via a semantic analysis of the site’s content and it’s a convenient and cost-effective alternative to other approaches to industry code appending.
Furthermore, Datafiniti’s strength in web crawling gives it the ability to perform some of the toughest tasks in data harvesting: accurate searching for highly specific product specifications, ratings, and reviews. If you’ve ever searched for a product that isn’t used by tens of millions of users, then you know how difficult this proposition is. For competitive intelligence professionals these types of tasks are important everyday queries and having timely, accurate pricing and review data is essential. IEI is very pleased to now be able to offer this capacity to our customers who want to append product data to company records, append reviews to product records, or to monitor product pricing and review information for competitive intelligence purposes.
