NEW YORK and SAN MATEO, Calif., Sept. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- LexisNexis® Legal & Professional (www.lexisnexis.com), a leading global provider of content and technology solutions, and Lattice Engines, the pioneer in Big Data for sales, today announced a multi-year agreement.
LexisNexis, the largest and most comprehensive database of company and executive sources and news, will enhance Lattice's Big Data for sales platform, salesPRISM, with timely access to the latest relevant information on customers and prospects, including executive news, financial results, product introductions and competitor activity. This enables sales professionals with more insightful and actionable intelligence to drive more sales and close more deals.
"Lattice has quickly become a key player in Big Data and analytics. Their product distills huge amounts of internal and external data and turns it into meaningful intelligence for sales," said Tom Ogburn, LexisNexis vice president and managing director for Business Insight Solutions. "By incorporating relevant news from the LexisNexis database into salesPRISM, sales professionals will have immediate access to information they need. This makes them smarter about their customers and prospects and helps sales professionals boost productivity."
"The extensive information from LexisNexis about customers and prospects, combined with our powerful Big Data analytics platform, is unmatched in the marketplace," said Shashi Upadhyay, CEO, Lattice Engines. "This collaboration exemplifies the next generation of sales technology where the most timely and relevant information from inside or outside company walls is continuously brought to reps' attention so they can sell the right product to the right customer, at the right time."
News articles about customers and prospects, generated from the LexisNexis database, will be indexed and sorted by subject and geography so that only the most relevant documents and information are retrieved. The highly selective LexisNexis filter eliminates duplicates, thus reducing the time sales professionals must spend researching news on customers and prospects.
