Frequently asked questions

From where do you collect your Business and Person Information?

We collect data from millions of unique commercially and publicly available sources including, state and federal business filings, company websites, job descriptions, job postings, social websites, business directories, and more. Our data collection is an important part of our business IP and strategy, and we typically do not reveal any further details.

This vast quantity of data is then distilled down to high-quality business and business person records at a large scale with high levels of multi-source validation and comprehensive deduplication. No other company is able to combine the number of high-quality input vectors and frequency of data refreshes that NetWise makes available.

How accurate is your data?

This answer depends largely on your use case and the specific information or data that you need. We maintain strict quality metrics for all our data products and we can answer any specific questions, explicitly, if you contact us directly.

This QA process is enhanced by our multi-sourced supply chain, providing many vectors for increased quality and accuracy, and is further backed by both manual oversight and unit testing throughout the production process.

NetWise generates comprehensive and deterministic B2B segments using current job titles, company firmographics, and other self-declared business-related attributes like skills, education, certifications, etc. This is accomplished by analyzing publicly available information and data created directly by persons in our dataset.

All our underlying data is available for your projects, and your segment questions can be answered explicitly if you contact us directly.

How fresh and current is your data?

Fresh data flows into our business weekly and is promptly tested for quality and consistency before being staged for inclusion into our core systems.

Depending on the customer needs and the specific data requested, we can deliver updates as frequently as weekly, with custom segments available on demand.
