Zoominfo is a business information search engine that allows users to find news, updates, and business details about industries, companies, and people, with over 4.5 million unique visitors monthly. Xing, meanwhile, is a professional networking site that allows its members to meet people in the same industries, opportunities and other privileges through it’s network directory and advanced contact management platform.
â€œThis is the first time that business networking and business search have been brought together. This partnership makes XING the business networking platform with access to the largest number of profiles of business professionals and companies in the world. Nearly 36 million people are now available to XING members, making XING a must-have business tool,â€ said Lars Hinrichs, Founder and CEO of XING.
On the other hand, Jonathan Stern, CEO of ZoomInfo said, â€œThe potential for users of ZoomInfo to build business relationships through XING and be a part of such an active international community will inevitably open up many more new business opportunities for them. Making valuable connections is critical to business success, and ZoomInfo is thrilled to now provide our users with integrated access to XINGâ€™s dynamic business network.â€
With this partnership by the top companies in the online business industry, Xing.com and Zoominfo aim to provide the U.S. business market unparalleed access to contacts and information that will take business networking and communications to the next level. This integration is expected to be launched in the fall of 2007.
