DiscoverOrg Aiming to Bring Unmatched Accuracy in Data Science for B2B Marketers
Starting immediately, new data will flow into both platforms, and both sets of customers will see an increase in the number of companies, contacts, and buying triggers that they can access. Over time, DiscoverOrg will bring together the best features of each platform to maximize customer value.
Both RainKing and DiscoverOrg were founded in 2007, have earned multiple consecutive rankings on the Inc. 5000 list, and leverage in-house research teams to verify data, guaranteeing an unparalleled level of accuracy in the market.
Customers are able to quickly identify their target accounts, predict and prioritize them based on their likelihood to purchase, and directly connect with the right buyers at the right time with verified direct-dial numbers, email addresses, and organizational charts.
John Donlon, Senior Research Director at SiriusDecisions, noted, “As the market continues to move toward account-based engagement built on a deep understanding of buying centers, investing in high quality data has become even more critical. Simply relying on information scraped from the web is not enough to succeed, but leveraging human-verified sales and marketing intelligence gives organizations a distinct advantage in all aspects of revenue generation.”
