Hoover’s Enhances Subscriber Offerings

Oct 24, 2006

Hoover's, Inc., a D&B company that provides information about industries, companies, and key decision makers, has announced the launch of Hoover's Premium Select, an enhancement to its suite of subscription offerings.

Hoover's Premium Select includes the following new options: Subscribers can download information on more than ten times as many U.S. companies and three times as many decision makers as before. They can download either a subset or all records within Hoover's database, depending on the package selected. Customers can gain access to more than four million additional companies in Europe and Asia Pacific (APAC) markets. Subscribers can add depth of content to any company record. Customers can select company and decision-maker content based on global region, for example, U.S. and Canada, APAC, U.K., Europe, and Top Global. Within each selected global region, subscribers can further customize their set of records using a number of parameters. For example, they can define the set by company size or industry, or by using additional criteria through Hoover's Build A List tool. Hoover's has also created a number of "off the shelf" downloadable target packages designed to let customers pinpoint the data important to their business, for example, "Major Market" (10+ employees and $1+ million in sales), "U.S. Midwest," and "U.S. Northeast."

These latest enhancements are designed to allow those subscribers to Hoover's Pro and Plus to gain access to every company in Hoover's newly expanded database of more than 21 million worldwide businesses and 28 million decision makers. All company records are now accessible to Hoover's Plus subscribers via search, as well as the Build A List tool.
