WALTHAM, Mass., Oct. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- NetProspex, the leader in verified B2B sales and marketing contact information, today announced it has received its 100 millionth business contact contribution to its B2B contact trading platform. This milestone further solidifies the company's crowd-sourcing process as a perpetual source of business contact information from its expansive community of thousands of B2B organizations.

Since inception, NetProspex has doubled the size of its user-generated contact database every year, and expects to continue this growth momentum well into the future. This rapid growth is driven by the company's crowd-sourced model, allowing B2B professionals to trade lists of contacts in exchange for credit. These credits are also available for purchase, and allow clients to fuel top-of-funnel activity with critical business prospect and company information including email address, phone number, address, website, revenue, size, location, and social media profiles.

Although 100 million records have been contributed to the contact trading platform, NetProspex's rigorous quality control rejects between 80% - 90% of all records traded.  Proprietary CleneStep™ verification drives the company's industry-leading accuracy standards. This three-dimensional verification utilizes live phone validation, email deliverability confirmation, and social networks to cleanse and verify contact details, maintaining a constant high-quality temperature across the database.

"B2B companies share a common need to create demand today, this month, this quarter," said Gary Halliwell, CEO of NetProspex. "This milestone recognizes the success of crowd-sourcing as a way for companies to turn contacts they have into prospects they need. Gaining access to all potential buyers in their audience has accelerated the sales process of our clients, and is a great example of crowd sourcing in the fast-growing data cloud."

Clients using the NetProspex contact trading platform use the service to pool contacts gathered (i.e. at a trade show) and download carefully targeted new prospects.

"The trading community at NetProspex has been an integral tool for our sales and marketing efforts," said Tim Doscher, CTO of Enteracloud. "What sets NetProspex apart is the information is consistently higher quality than other contact record providers. Their accurate data and ease of accessibility has been our secret weapon for direct access to decision makers."

According to Dave Kalstrom, founder of Outbound Excellence, "NetProspex's trading feature is a zero-cost way to grow prospect databases for clients."

Additionally, Michael Turi, President of Health Care Reach commented, "I continually use NetProspex as the trading user-interface is easy to use, I can find targeted emails for contacts, and the support team is great."

This announcement is the first in what is expected to be a series of product enhancements, new launches and continued growth of NetProspex's database and customer base. For more information on NetProspex and to follow the company as it announces upcoming news, please visit:
