New D&B seruice ofierc deeper corporab linkage data

18 Apr 2005

D&B, a leading source of global business information for more than 160 years, recently launched Corporate Family Tree Plus to deliver
in-depth views of companies by extending family trees (details on companis and all their subsidiaries) beyond legal ownership criteria
and affiliations. According to, these new expanded views enable D&B customers to better sell to these companies.

Connecting corporate data in a useful manner has long been a complex and tedious pK,cess. D&B has one department that is solely
responsible for cot?orate linkages and family trees which covers over 7,000,000 businesses and locations.

Pricing is offered on both a subscription and usage basis. "Corporate Family Tree Plus customers can now uncover new nevenue
opportunities by cross-selling to business prospects they discover are within the same dealer or franchise network," says Preston
nlt also allows them to
Williams III, product Manager of Global Data Collection for D&B's Sales & Marketing Solutions (VAPS) division.
maximize Cusitomer Relationship Management (CRM) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) investments by integrating data more
comprehensively, focus marketing resources where they will have the greatest impact, and align sales initiatives on the types of
corporate affiliation that most closely match their business models. There currently is no product in the marketplace that offers these
capabilities.
