SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 11, 2012) - InsideView, the leading provider of sales intelligence solutions to B2B sales and marketing organizations, today announced a multi-faceted partnership with Equifax, a global leader in consumer, commercial and workforce information solutions, to deliver the most comprehensive, single-source, global business data solution. The combined solution gives sales and marketing professionals the 'inside edge' with access to one of the largest sources of industry-leading business data to uncover prime prospects, understand their business issues, and connect to key decision-makers. 

The InsideView Sales Intelligence solution gathers, analyzes and extracts the most relevant information from over 30,000 data, news and social media sources to provide an unparalleled array of intelligence, social and business connections and information to that helps sales people more effectively connect with decision makers. InsideView and Equifax will co-sell the solution. 

"With Equifax, we can deliver more complete sales data and real-time business intelligence to meet the needs of the entire sales organization, including those teams that are focused on small business, the mid-market, or the large enterprise accounts," stated Umberto Milletti, CEO of InsideView. "This comprehensive global coverage removes data barriers and provides real-time company data and insights -- regardless of company size or geography -- that can't be obtained in any other single-source solution." 

Equifax will lend its proprietary technology, advanced analytical expertise and best-in-class business data to the InsideView sales intelligence solution. "Equifax is able to leverage data on 81 million businesses worldwide to deliver the most comprehensive and predictive data in the market," said John Donahue, Vice President of Business Development for Equifax Commercial Information Solutions. "The breadth of Equifax data combined with InsideView insider sales intelligence makes for more complete, 'smarter' data. We are pleased to partner with them on this integrated solution."

Users of the combined solution will have seamless, fingertip access to standard business data -- revenue, employee count, account linkage, etc. -- along with value added Equifax data -- credit risk indicators, marketability and stability indices, 'cradle to grave' identifiers like EFX ID -- and sales intelligence information within their existing CRM system. Seamless synchronization of data and sales intelligence information is automatic within all major CRM systems, and enables constant access to high quality business data and key company contacts without manual searches or workflow changes. The solution provides significant competitive advantages for sales professionals as they target individuals and businesses of all sizes and across major geographies.
