Hooverâ€™s, Inc. announced the launch of Hooverâ€™s Connect, a business networking tool that helps users get introduced to and establish relationships with targeted prospects. This launch coincides with Hooverâ€™s agreement to acquire Visible Path, the company that had been powering Hoover’s Connect Beta for the past year. The financial terms of the deal are not disclosed.
Hooverâ€™s Connect will give Hooverâ€™s subscribers comprehensive business insight along with professional social networking, to provide the fastest path to business. Unlike other social networking services, Hooverâ€™s Connect provides an effective, non-intrusive way for its users to connect to a person through someone the prospect may already have a strong relationship with, and who is therefore best suited to make that introduction.
What distinguishes Hooverâ€™s Connect from other professional business networking tools is its ability to identify usersâ€™ strongest relationships by evaluating their Outlook systems such as e-mail and calendars. The service then assesses the strength of those connections and rates them accordingly, all while maintaining customer privacy. Hooverâ€™s Connect lets users evaluate in advance the potential of a particular networking opportunity and tailor communications accordingly, ultimately enhancing the success of online relationship building.
