How we help

Navigation short description:

Get more out of your CRM – enrich and refresh your content with our company information solutions

We all recognise that your sales team isn’t the ideal resource to maintain an accurate CRM – and you want them to be out there selling rather than being administrators. By plugging in data from one of our databases into your CRM you can seamlessly refresh and enrich your records.

Our expert team makes this a very simple process – and at the same time they can help you resolve existing data issues by highlighting duplicate records and companies who are no longer in business. We can also help you harmonise different datasets across your business.

As well as getting more accurate live records, an integration project will also benefit you by pulling in additional information that will help you sales people sell, including: activity codes, size criteria, growth figures, corporate group details and financial strength metrics.

Harness the power of corporate group information

We have the most extensive database on corporate groups and how companies are linked. Our ownership explorer tool can help you understand complex corporate groups in seconds and show you:

  • Where ultimate owners are based – globally and domestically, to help you find decision makers
  • If two companies/directors are linked to each other
  • A company’s “family” to help you find and track opportunities across corporate groups and linked companies

Strategic analysis and planning

With global coverage, and comparable data, we provide the best solutions on the market for strategy and planning. We capture and treat private company information for better decision making and increased efficiency.

Use Orbis to:

Understand a new market or region
Our heat maps and pivot analyses give you instant visuals on the corporate landscape – by size, activity, location etc - wherever you’re researching.

Compare peer companies
Our software helps you identify peers and then runs sophisticated peer analyses for you.

Order documents
Our document ordering tool, powered by aRMadillo, means you can order a wide range of original documents, even for companies not already on Orbis.

Use alongside your Office tools
Our contemporary add-ins mean you can use Orbis to seamlessly populate your templates in Excel or PowerPoint.

Understand corporate ownership
Our Ownership Explorer tool gives you instant visualisation on direct and indirect ownership. You can create filters and use colours to analyse structures, you can even plot a tree to highlight entities in low tax jurisdictions.

Strategic searching for business development

Our products make creating searches easy. You can combine as many search steps as you like to find companies with very specific profiles. And, because we’re such experts in data, we take searching to the next level. Our simple-to-use software means you can start getting very clever, very quickly.

So, you can find companies with consistent growth rates, use Boolean logic to create ‘and’/’or’ searches, find companies with new owners, who are private equity backed and likely to have expansion plans, companies with slowing growth or negative growth, or who deliver very specific services or products.

And once you’ve identified a group of companies by your chosen profiles you can set alerts to see when new companies join your group.

Get sales triggers via sophisticated alerts

Our products will watch sets of companies for you and alert you to changes that may create, or remove, an opportunity for you. These include:

    • New financials filed
    • A change in management
    • A change in ownership or rumour of M&A activity
    • News about a company – you can filter for just negative news
    • A change in a company’s financial strength – positively or negatively
    • An office move
    • A change of status (active/inactive/rescue plan etc)
    • That a company now fulfils, or no longer fulfils, a profile you’ve created
