22nd July 2014

Our Premium Business Data is showing itself to be the top choice for our clients, when (free) samples are tested against data from our standard data the premium data always out performs, so much so that 90%+ of our data sales are for the premium data. Because of this we have decided to restrict the sales of our standard data to online purchases only, we have also decided to stop maintaining the email addresses in this database. This data can be still purchased at a discount online through this link it is still a good offering for those on a tight budget.

19th May 2014

As a data broker we constantly review the data offerings of UK data companies; we are confident that our premium business list is the best in the UK. Why? Mainly because the whole database has been telephone researched within the last 10 months.

2nd October 2012:

Our new web resources has been registered and we are beginning the job of uploading information.  It aims to be a source of information for all SIC Code structures used in the UK and internationally.  There is so much information we have had to recruit more staff to populate it.

Our website, a source of information on UK SIC codes, now has a SIC Finder tool.  If you're looking for just a few SIC codes for UK companies you can type in the company name or description and it will provide you with the SIC code.  You don't have to sign up to the website, and it saves you from searching around for just a few SIC codes.
