What is a company search?

In a nutshell, a company search tells you whatever you need to know – from general information to precise, in-depth details – about a particular company or business entity.

Ideally, company searches allow you to access all types of data on a company. A comprehensive company search provides more thorough information than you could uncover doing a routine free online search.

Why would you conduct a company search?

Having complete background information and timely business intelligence is critical to your work. Company searches can provide you with invaluable research and information that can help you make more strategic, better-informed decisions and positively impact your business.

For instance, company searches can:

uncover hidden connections between people, companies, and assets that could influence how you conduct business
allow you to gain powerful insights into the fundamental details of the competitors in your industry
keep you informed so you can stay ahead of the curve – giving your business a potential competitive advantage
help you pinpoint competitors, new markets, potential partners, vendors, and other business opportunities.

How does company search work?

Robust company searches can quickly and effectively research people, companies, and industries to provide you with:

  • the latest news
  • company information, including parent company info, subsidiary data, and partnerships
  • biographical information about executives and employees
  • financials and financial analysis
  • legal information
  • regulatory data
  • industry research
  • market research
  • and more.

To effectively deliver this breadth of information, the company search facility needs access to:

  • news sources
  • company profiles and reports
  • public records
  • social media
  • videos
  • photographs
  • industry reports
  • and more.
