Company Information

The Value of Company Information

Business professionals research company information to achieve strategic and tactical objectives. These can include preparing for sales calls, evaluating new business opportunities, monitoring mergers and acquisitions activity, and gathering competitive intelligence.

Company Profiles

One way to obtain company information is to access company profiles that summarize a companys history, executives, financials and other business information. Business information services offer company profiles as part of extensive information databases or single company research reports. A company profile provides the data an organization needs to get a full picture of a prospect, competitor, customer or acquisition opportunity, including:

  • Company information such as office locations, subsidiaries, and parent and corporate family name to show how the company is organized
  • Business description that summarizes a companys focus, history, competitive position and corporate structure
  • Listings of senior staff including profiles on top executives
  • Financial health data
  • Major brands and trade names, lines of business, information on markets served and other data that shows how the company competes
  • Announcements and news coverage

Business Reports

Other sources of company information include in-depth business reports on specific areas of interest. For example, OneSource the worlds leading global business information service offers comprehensive executive listings with biographies, educational background and professional affiliations.
