Demandbase, an on demand software company transforming the way B2B companies identify, reach, and convert new business, has been recognized as a 2008 “Model of Excellence” award winner by InfoCommerce Group, presented during the InfoCommerce2008 Conference awards ceremony last night. The annual “Model of Excellence” awards recognize innovative companies which effectively combine world-class software with high quality data and, according to InfoCommerce, Demandbase was chosen for its unique approach to helping businesses prospect more efficiently.
“Starting with a carefully selected group of ‘best of breed’ data sources, Demandbase has created a powerful and user-friendly online interface that makes it simple to build highly targeted lists of qualified business contacts – even providing proprietary scoring and automated recommendations functionality,” said Russell Perkins, founder and managing director, InfoCommerce Group Inc. “Demandbase has also worked hard to provide additional capabilities including tight integration with Salesforce.com, and an innovative tool, Demandbase Stream, to identify and profile website visitors in real time. Overall, it’s fair to say that Demandbase represents a fundamental re-invention of the B2B lead generation business.”
“Demandbase is honored to be named a ‘Model of Excellence’ award winner by the industry leader in data publishing consulting and research,” said Chris Golec, CEO of Demandbase. “Our goal is to be the first and last stop for sales and marketing professionals seeking to mine the important data they need to drive marketing ROI, and recognition as a ‘Model of Excellence’ gets us closer to that goal.”
At the core of Demanbase’s solutions for gaining new customers is Demandbase Central, a lead acquisition platform that powers a new breed of on demand solutions that bring an unprecedented level of accuracy, transparency and simplicity to new customer acquisition.
