BELLEVUE, Wash. and SAN DIEGO, Sept. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Intelius - a leading information commerce company that empowers consumers and businesses with information to make intelligent decisions about personal safety and security - was named a DEMOgod for its first-of-its-kind Date Check mobile application at DEMOfall 09 this week in San Diego. The DEMOgod awards honor outstanding presentations at DEMO. Intelius was one of only seven companies recognized in a special awards ceremony at DEMOfall 09. Seventy companies presented at this year's conference.
DEMOgod winners are chosen for their style, passion, clarity, as well as their unique ability to deliver a great product and position it in the market, show off its most compelling features, differentiate it from other products, and entertain a tough and critical DEMO audience with a few good tricks.
"Date Check mobile caught everyone's attention at DEMO this week, which is what we look for when selecting our DEMOgods," said Chris Shipley, Executive Producer of the DEMO Conferences. "We were impressed not only with the technology behind the app, but the presentation and marketability. This is sure to be one of the most talked about apps of the year."
The Date Check application is a mobile expansion of the existing Intelius Date Check online service. Date Check mobile allows consumers to perform instant background checks on potential dates directly from their mobile phones. With only a name or cell phone number, the Date Check mobile application searches publicly available information to instantly provide an on-the-go background profile of new acquaintances. In addition to basic information like name, age and address, Date Check searches social networking sites like LinkedIn for data on employment history and education records. The Sleaze Detector feature scans criminal records to determine if anyone matching that name has a criminal record with offenses such as drug possession, assault and battery, sex crimes and DUI, among others. The Net Worth function gives users information about certain assets that include property value, as well as ownership and home details.
"DEMO was the perfect launch pad for Date Check mobile," said John Arnold, Co-Founder and Executive Vice President, Business Development of Intelius. "We were in the company of some of the most exciting new technologies coming to the marketplace and we are honored to be recognized for something we believe is truly original."
