In today's ultra-competitive marketplace, data-driven organizations have a distinct advantage over their rivals. Did you know that data-driven companies are 23x more likely to acquire new customers and 6x more likely to retain them?

D&B Hoovers can help close that gap and accelerate the path from prospect to profitable relationship through the effective use of data and analytics.

We believe there is a huge opportunity for B2B sales & marketing organizations to move from a traditional approach to prospects to one that accelerates sales.

D&B Hoovers leverages the world's largest commercial database and advanced analytics packed with insight to accelerate your sales process. It enables B2B sales and marketing professionals to accelerate sales, improve go-to market activities and increase business growth globally.
