MRINetwork Awards ZoomInfo Powered by DiscoverOrg with Two Honors: Vendor of the Year and Best in Category for Data Sources

Delivering exceptional results year-after-year, ZoomInfo supports the global franchises in business development and recruiting outreach

VANCOUVER, Wash., Nov. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ZoomInfo, the global leader in Go-To-Market (GTM) intelligence solutions, today announced it was honored with two prestigious awards from the MRINetwork: Vendor of the Year and Best in Category for Data Sources. Each year, MRINetwork, a company that offers recruiting and staffing services through independent offices around the world, survey’s a network of nearly 400 franchises regarding best-in-class solutions for every vendor category. Following, the franchises nominate winners from a list of over 175 vendors.

“From the beginning, we saw exceptional results with the platform; now, years later, we’ve remained just as committed to our partnership with ZoomInfo,” said Beth. “That’s why it came as no surprise to see ZoomInfo win in the Vendor of the Year and Best in Category for Data Sources categories. We can’t wait to see what the future of unparalleled recruiting intelligence looks like – and we know we’ll experience it with ZoomInfo.”

This year, the ZoomInfo Powered by DiscoverOrg platform outperformed over 175 vendors currently in the MRINetwork vendor program to receive two coveted awards from the organization, which only underscores the importance of data intelligence in the recruiting industry.

“Finding exceptional candidates isn’t easy; and, once you find good fit talent, getting a hold of them can be even more challenging,” continued Beth. “ZoomInfo’s benefits are twofold: Not only does the platform enable us to find best-fit talent fast, streamlining the search process – but it provides us with accurate contact information for those often passive candidates.”

ZoomInfo Launches Compliance API to Help Businesses Adhere to Data Privacy Obligations Outlined by GDPR and CCPA

Global Leader in GTM Intelligence Solutions Strengthens Commitment and Capabilities to Assist with Data Privacy and Compliance Within Everyday Workflows, Across All Marketing Automations

VANCOUVER, Wash., Nov. 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ZoomInfo, the global leader in go-to-market (GTM) intelligence solutions, today announced the release of its Compliance API, created to help ZoomInfo customers understand the personal data they possess and more accurately respond to consumer requests under GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and the forthcoming CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act), as well as electronic communication laws. The API further demonstrates ZoomInfo’s commitment to promoting data privacy.  

With integration available across all of the industry’s leading sales and marketing automation platforms, the ZoomInfo Compliance API automatically incorporates compliance alerts and actionable remedies across everyday business workflows — ensuring a better customer experience and helping companies comply with consumer preferences under state and federal data privacy regulations.

“For decades, our data asset has helped companies go to market. What we realized is that same data asset can serve as a key input as companies work to comply with data privacy regulations,” said Henry Schuck, CEO and Founder of ZoomInfo. “Because of our robust legal, privacy, compliance, and product teams, we are able to constantly think forward about the issues, regulatory or otherwise, that our clients grapple with every day.  The release of the compliance API is evidence of that.”

ZoomInfo’s Compliance API is uniquely capable of identifying a broad range of compliance complications, such as when someone has multiple inboxes at work, whether due to email aliases or even a maiden name. The API even uses employment history data to help customers remove contact information from a past employer, and it protects against a previously removed email alias re-populating in sales and marketing databases. 

“It is a struggle to fully unsubscribe data subjects when so many people have variations of their email addresses at work and professionals are changing jobs on average every three years,” said Derek Smith, ZoomInfo’s Senior Vice President of Data. “Despite the known challenges, failing to remove a data subject puts companies at risk of violating privacy laws, which carry major fines. ZoomInfo’s Compliance API helps address this problem, right at the source of B2B data truth, to improve results and reduce exposure.”

Available today, more information about the ZoomInfo Compliance API can be found at: https://www.zoominfo.com/business/compliance

“We provide one of the most sophisticated data platforms that exists for marketing and communications professionals today, and are fortunate to work with an increasingly sophisticated set of customers who want to innovate with us in new ways that allow them to build and protect their brands,” said Aaron Hayes-Roth, Vice President of Business and Corporate Development at Zignal Labs. “Cutting edge technology is the foundation, but expert analysis and an ability to get to insights is the art that must accompany the science. Zignal’s new Partner Program allows us to bring in a much wider set of experts to address our growing set of customer needs and respond much more quickly to the outcomes they want to drive.”

Zignal and its trusted network of partners will work together to provide customers with joint offerings that extend Zignal Labs’ platform to offer valuable solutions such as core media analytics (daily briefings, measurement reporting, crisis and issue management), audience insights (influencer mapping, audience segmentation), content creation (topic discovery, automation analysis, keyword/hashtag analysis), message distribution (community identification, news cycle mapping, network clustering) and areas of significant business impact (disinformation/influence operations, data blending, geopolitical impact, risk mitigation).

What Zignal’s current partners say:

“In today’s world, it’s critical to be able to efficiently and strategically extract insights from data,” said Robert Stewart, CEO of TextOre. “By partnering with Zignal Labs, we’re excited to give our joint customers the deeper, data-driven insights they need to help them not only monitor the reputation of their brands, but also help power their businesses into the future.

“Media data – and all data related to marketing and business – is growing faster than ever. We’re on track to create 40 zettabytes of data this year, and 5x that by 2025. 1 zettabyte is 55 million years of watching Netflix non-stop,” said Christopher Penn, Co-Founder and Chief Data Scientist at Trust Insights. “Our partnership with Zignal Labs ensures that our customers have access to the most advanced technology available for dealing with this volume of information and help the world’s best brands know what’s going on, as it happens.”

Ctrip Group Shares Marketing Tips at ITB Asia 2019

SINGAPORE, Oct. 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today, representatives from the Ctrip and Trip.com brands participated in the 12th ITB Asia convention on behalf of Ctrip Group, the largest online travel business in Asia.

Trip.com General Manager of Destination Marketing Edison Chen and Ctrip Area General Manager Ru Yi both spoke at the convention, which the Asian travel sector’s premier annual trade fair, akin to its parent trade show ITB Berlin. This marks the third year that Ctrip Group has participated in and sponsored the exhibition held annually in Singapore, which last year attracted over 1,000 exhibitors, 1,000 buyers and 11,000 attendees.

As an industry leader, representatives from Ctrip Group this year took to the stage to share the company’s experiences with peers at the travel industry’s largest gathering in the region. The most important lesson, Chen said, is that marketing must be targeted, and providers must know their customers. “Each product, and every customer are different. That’s why it’s so important to know your customer, your product, and tell your brand story in ways that appeal,” he said.

This month, Ctrip Group celebrates the 20th anniversary of its founding. Over that period, the company has developed a userbase of over 300 million, and has expanded internationally with its Trip.com brand, serving 23 markets with 19 languages. Chen says industry experience is a factor in the company’s success, but so too have new technologies helped the company to better understand the sorts of products its users are likely to be interested in.

“Ctrip Group has been in this industry for 20 years, and we’ve grown to become the largest OTA in Asia. Our experience, and data tell us precisely what works in which market, and we’re glad to offer our expertise to help destinations and partners together grow with us,” said Chen.

The other part of the equation, said Ctrip Area General Manager Ru Yi, is to listen to customers, and identify changes in consumption habits. “Various factors determine whether a customer makes a purchase on your platform — reliability, convenience, and price are all considerations. We’re seeing price becoming a less important factor, as more customers seek customized travel experiences,” said Ru Yi.

It is also important, said Ru Yi, for companies to have a genuine purpose and sincere desire to bring value to their customers. Ctrip Group has achieved success to date by always putting its customers first and innovating in ways that improve their travel experience. “As our customers’ needs change, so too should we adapt to better meet them,” she said. “That’s why we have always listened to our customers’ feedback, and encouraged our employees to innovate, and strived to ‘make travel happier’ for everyone.”

STAPLES Center, Microsoft Theater and L.A. LIVE Partner With LAVA to Reimagine the Guest Experience

First of its kind LAVA technology activates data in real time to innovate retail, sponsorship, and concessions operations for venues, and create custom guest experiences during live events

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — LAVA, the marketing platform that activates real time data to create engaging experiences during live events, today announced its partnership with STAPLES Center, Microsoft Theater and L.A. LIVE, the iconic arena and surrounding entertainment district in downtown Los Angeles, to reinvent the guest experience during live entertainment events for the first time. The partnership comes ahead of STAPLES Center’s 20th anniversary this October, and coincides with the public debut of LAVA, which launched out of stealth mode today.

STAPLES Center, Microsoft Theater and L.A. LIVE will use LAVA’s groundbreaking real time fan experience and analytics technology to improve the overall experience for the millions of guests attending professional sports games and high profile music and entertainment events each year. 

The STAPLES Center, Microsoft Theater and L.A. LIVE teams will start by integrating LAVA as an onsite operational tool. The LAVA platform will instantly analyze customer experience data generated by connected devices — such as ticketing scans, concessions and merchandise — and consolidate it into an intuitive, easy to use dashboard. Event staff can monitor operations and improve the guest experience during an event, such as managing special offers and promotions, crowd control or adjusting internal staffing. In the near future, STAPLES Center, Microsoft Theater and L.A. LIVE will expand the LAVA technology platform into its retail, sponsorship, and concessions operations, enabling the arena to further monitor real time business performance as well as surprise guests with in the moment digital offers, such as exclusive discounts, VIP lounge access and more.

LAVA’s platform activates using digital experience passes on smartphone devices to seamlessly enable real time notification and redemption for guests, as well as accurate and instant analytic insights for venues. This type of real time visibility and activation for event operations has never been done before, and STAPLES Center is the first arena in Los Angeles to adopt LAVA.

“Over the last 20 years, STAPLES Center has proudly embraced state of the art technology to further our mission of creating the finest entertainment experience imaginable. In turn, we have set new standards for the arena industry, and continue to do so with our preeminent partnership with LAVA,” said Lee Zeidman, President of STAPLES Center, Microsoft Theater and L.A. LIVE, “LAVA fills a much needed gap in the live event market: that we have never before had visibility into our guests’ experience in the moment, nor an ability to act on those insights while an event is taking place. With LAVA’s platform we are well-equipped to continue honing and perfecting our guests’ experiences in ways that were previously impossible.”

The technology stood out to the STAPLES Center, Microsoft Theater and L.A. LIVE team for many reasons, but its preference for delivering a frictionless experience, using digital experience passes on smartphones rather than native apps, was a critical factor given the multiple tenants and fan bases that visit the arena annually.

“We’ve been selective about the type of companies we work with, and we immediately realized that STAPLES Center, Microsoft Theater and L.A. LIVE have the same innovation-centric mindset when it comes to improving and perfecting the guest experience. The team was also faced with a unique challenge given the volume and diversity of its guests in part due to housing four professional sports teams, along with world-class music and entertainment events all year long,” said Wen Miao, CEO of LAVA. “We are excited to partner with STAPLES Center, Microsoft Theater and L.A. LIVE to surprise and delight fans, by creating meaningful experiences for the millions of guests that visit the arena and L.A. LIVE complex each year. This partnership means huge improvements in the way guests experience live events, both at STAPLES Center, Microsoft Theater and broadly across the industry.”

Founded by Vivek Ranadivé, the founder and former CEO of TIBCO, and Wen Miao, a former SVP and GM at TIBCO, LAVA is the first marketing platform to successfully activate real time data to create meaningful customer experiences during an event, engaging with guests in the moment and broaden existing revenue streams through personalized, memorable experiences.
