Sales teams don’t like updating contacts; CRM systems don’t come with pre-populated, up-to-date information. To resolve this inefficiency, we’ve just released the v3 DueDil API, our third release in the past 12 months. And for the first time, the DueDil API now includes our advanced search capability.
DueDil today (01.04.2014) announces that it is entering the “relationship discovery” market with its new “Sugar Search” functionality.
For the first time, “Sugar Search” will enable directors to search the UK’s largest database of company information for a potential husband or wife, based on a number of key criteria - location, company profitability, cash reserves and share ownership.
"It’s Companies House meets Match.com,” said DueDil founder Damian Kimmelman. ”We found that so many of our users look to DueDil as their primary source for finding the private wealth of individuals that we decided to really play up this feature.”
DueDil also announced changes to its unique “Keyword” functionality, which matches 1.3 million company records to their company website. DueDil users can now apply new keyword terms such as “hot”, “rich”, “discreet”, “open for offers” to their director searches.
“This is a game changer in business information,” said Kimmelman.
In 1977, a young economist called Michael Brin decided to leave Russia, in part because of the discrimination he faced as a Jew in that country. He and his young family made their new home and life in California, US. They flourished, in particular Michael and Eugenia’s son Sergey (pictured), who went on to start one of the world’s most successful companies, Google. In his recent Huffington Post blog, DueDil’s CEO Damian Kimmelman hoped that future migrant Brins would receive a similarly warm welcome here in the UK.
This week we launched a new report, Migrant Entrepreneurs: building our businesses, creating our jobs, with the Centre for Entrepreneurs. For the first time, we’ve brought hard evidence into the debate around immigration in the UK. You can read the report online here and tweet your reactions with the hashtag #migrEnts Enjoy!
