2006 brought the introduction of Alacra Connections, another of our “4Cs” products. Alacra Connections provides Corporate Executive and Board of Director Information for over 30,000 companies, non-profit organizations, and trade associations as well as complete biographical information for over 400,000 executives and board members.
By integrating multiple databases, Alacra Connections is able to uncover relationships among key industry leaders not evident through simple searches of corporate board memberships. Alacra Connections integrates content from the following premium databases:
- Corporate Board Member, including Directors plus “c-level” executives at companies traded on the NYSE, AMEX and NASDAQ exchanges.
- Leadership Directories, whose depth of coverage of “Fortune 1000” companies, nonprofits and trade associations is unmatched.
- Hemscott, the leading provider of UK Company data, with coverage of more than 17,000 Directors at 2,300 UK and Irish listed companies.
Each of these databases has been selected for its depth and breadth of coverage, supported by dedicated teams of data analysts who leverage proprietary and public information sources to keep the information up to date.
This breadth of coverage, integrated from several “people” databases, allows Alacra to provide the institutional investment community with relationship intelligence that allows them to uncover “degrees of separation” for sales, marketing, and conflict checking purposes. Alacra Connections brings social networking to the investment and consulting markets, enabling professionals to leverage their existing relationships for business development.
During the past year Alacra has been fine-tuning Alacra Connections so that it can be easily integrated into a firm’s CRM or Knowledge Management System. Whether you are looking to integrate internal data, or external data sources, Alacra Connections provides a flexible and extensible platform for relationship intelligence.
This post is the fourth in the Alacra Year-in-Review series.
