FullContact Launches Company API for Developers

Platform Effortlessly Enriches Apps With Valuable Company Insights

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - Apr 15, 2015) - Following the successful launch of its mobile application and Gmail extension, Denver-based FullContact is now introducing the Company API. The purpose of the API is to allow developers the power to add company information to their products, uncovering data such as company size, location, age and much more.

The release of the Company API is in answer to developers who have long requested the ability to surface company information that can be valuable for targeting, segmentation and augmentation across different applications.

For FullContact, the Company API is a logical next step. "We've already built the world's largest platform for adding publicly-accessible data about people," said CEO Bart Lorang. "Providing access to this same level of information about the companies that people do business with every day not only helps customers to get a complete picture, but it also empowers developers in ways that they've never had before."

Users of FullContact's Gmail extension have already seen the Company API in action. When a contact's profile is displayed, the Company tab will show relevant information about the company that would otherwise go unknown.

For developers, the Company API can return a vast array of information:

  • Basic info, such as domain, name and traffic rank
  • Social background including follower info, bios and images sourced from Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, AngelList, Crunchbase, etc
  • Contact details, email, corporate HQ address, phone, and fax
  • Company overview, size, formation date, images and logos and Wiki style article about the company
  • Category (Email provider, educational facility, etc)
  • Language locale (if known)
  • Other company URLs such as RSS Feeds and blogs
  • Keywords

The FullContact Company API release is in general availability today. Interested developers can find more information at https://fullcontact.com/developer.
