I wanted to let you know there are some great things going on at ZoomInfo lately.

I just received official notification that ZoomInfo won this year’s Nucleus Research ROI Awards. This award, given out by the technology analyst firm, honors outstanding technology projects that delivered value to an organization. submitted ZoomInfo as their showcase customer this year. We were one of 10 winners, and anecdotally were told we made the top 3. The judges were particularly impressed with ZoomInfo’s methodical approach to measuring and modifying sales and marketing campaigns for maximum impact.

ZoomInfo has also been named to this year’s Red Herring 100, a prestigious award recognizing the most promising private companies driving the future of technology.

On top of these great awards they have also been getting some incredible press like this mention in Forbes magazine:

“To get the very best talent for senior IT jobs, you clearly cannot just post a job and hope that the best people in the world apply,” argues Randy Stevens, director of enterprise IT recruiting for Nationwide. Steven’s team uses a formalized methodology to identify a small number of key people that Nationwide would like to attract. Then, rather than recruiters trying to “make the sale,” they get their own senior IT executives to build a relationship.

“The challenge is, [as] you reach out to talk to these people, what do you talk about?” asks Stevens. Here again, new technology plays a role. Nationwide uses Zoominfo, a service that scans the Web, to keep track of its targets. Nationwide can call up the talent it is wooing and say “We saw your article” or “Congratulations on the award” or “We noticed you are speaking at this conference.” The enticement process can easily take 10 to 12 months. That’s a long process, but that is where the recruiting function is going.”

If you have any questions about any of the forementioned awards or if you have questions about ZoomInfo please contact Bruce G. Owens at 781.693.7542 and tell him Dave Mendoza at sent you!
