Governments
Using structured data to measure the internet economy with Google and Statistics Netherlands
Governments

The challenge

The internet has complicated our economic systems. At the same time, it has become a valuable - and enormous - data source to study the internet economy. To do so, a three-way partnership between Google and Statistics Netherlands was created.

The solution

Dataprovider.com is continuously indexing the web to collect data, which we made available to Statistics Netherlands. Statistics Netherlands has a large amount of statistical data on businesses within the Dutch economy. By linking data about Dutch websites to data about Dutch companies, we facilitated a thorough analysis of the internet economy.

Financial service
Using structured data to track the performance of publicly listed tech companies
Financial service

The challenge

A SEC-registered investment firm wanted to track the performance of tech companies in its portfolio ahead of the quarterly earnings releases. They wanted to do this as part of their quantitative and value-focused investments. For the value-focused investments, they aimed to better understand their popularity, activity at development level and the clients using the technology. On a quantitative level, they needed input for their alpha-generating investments.

The solution

To track its portfolio companies, the firm created two datasets per portfolio company within our public search engine. By doing so, they could track their performance on the monthly index and within the Dataprovider.com panel. This panel consisted of companies that were tracked for the last 24 months and showed a medium to high heartbeat. For their alpha-generating strategy, we provided a monthly dump of US data going back to 36 months.

The result

A clever way to track the performance of listed companies.

Market intelligence
Using structured data for better prospecting, conversion and growth
Market intelligence

The challenge

The more you know about your business leads, the easier it is to convert them into your next customer and help them grow. Identifying businesses that might need your solution is difficult. Converting them into a new customer is even tougher. A solid client profile enables you to match potential clients to your solution.

The solution

By filtering the web using tech criteria, firmographics and demographics, users can create a tailored target list within Dataprovider.com, including contact data points. Once prospected, you can get unique insights into companies and their competitors.

The result

A method to keep clients up to date and track them over time by integrating the Dataprovider.com data with standardized integrations in CRM and market automation tools.

Telecom
Creating a better VOIP experience with structured data
Financial services

The challenge

An international telecommunications provider wanted to upgrade the connection experience and add stickiness to its operations by enriching calls. With VOIP as the standard for business telephony, it has become easier for clients to switch to a different provider. Time for a serious upgrade in added value!

The solution

The provider integrated the Dataprovider.com API into its calling operations. By doing so, they could send more information via the VOIP hardware display at the user's desk.

The result

The provider mapped the caller’s phone number to the company profile. Now, when the provider's customers receives a call, the display automatically shows the company information, trust grade and economic footprint of the company that is calling. In the backend, a full backlog is creating valuable insights callers can rely on for support.

Marketing and Communication
Building a better experience using web data intelligence
Marketing and Communication

The challenge

There’s no need to offer SME products to corporates - and vice versa. To avoid this problem, an industry leader in network technology, targeting both SMEs and corporate institutions, wanted to build a customer experience based on the potential customer’s stage of experience, growth stage, technology stack and company size.

The solution

The industry leader sends the visitor's IP address to the Dataprovider.com API reverse DNS endpoint. Dataprovider.com maps the IP address to Company and returns the respective company profile at Dataprovider.com to the industry leader.

The result

The company profile in our database contains unique scores like economic footprint, heartbeat and technology stack to determine the size, growth and technology usage of a company. The industry leader could use this information to determine which products to promote - and which to ignore. It also resulted in statistics for customer profiling.

Financial service
Using structured data to outsmart frauds
Financial services

The challenge

Recent statistics showed that banks and credit card companies had prevented over two billion euros in unauthorized payment fraud in 2019. Due to COVID-19, consumers and firms are adapting to new forms and norms. And so are criminals. New ways of fraud are on the rise. An international PSP (payment service provider) was looking for an extra signal to alert them on possible fraudulent behavior.

The solution

The solution was at hand with our KYC product. As we already indexed all of the provider’s clients and potential clients weekly, we also calculated the traffic on the (potential) clients’ websites with our Traffic Index. The PSP mapped a tracked payment volume to the Traffic Index looking for disbalances. Our solution automatically alerted the risk department on clients with a low traffic index and high payment volume.

The result

A data-driven solution to outsmart frauds.

Know Your Customer
Using structured data to improve customer insights
Know Your Customer

The challenge

Due to regulations and customer demand, companies need to have a clear and well-documented view on customers, suppliers and potential clients. The most up-to-date data source of company information to share- and stakeholders? A company's website.

The solution

Multiple clients use our KYC solution to create their own search engine by uploading company details of their clients, prospects, suppliers and stakeholders. Our KYC solution independently indexes their websites and matches companies and websites.

The result

By doing so, our clients have a holistic view of the company's stakeholders and their performance. The solution also creates signals for all departments, from sales to risk management and from product development to data science.

Consultancy
Using structured data to get an overview of the hosting market
Consultancy

The challenge

A global consultancy agency wanted to understand the web hosting market by website volume and the positioning of its major players over the last five years. Additionally, they wanted to know which email marketing platforms were being used in the hosting market.

The solution

At Dataprovider.com, we have captured eight years of internet history. Within our index, we added hosting and technology usage to hostnames. We created this solution within minutes by selecting all variables and exporting that query with over 36 months of data.

The result

A hosting market matrix with technology usage and penetration.

Financial service
Using structured data to find and research target companies for a buy-and-build strategy
Financial service

The challenge

A Dutch private equity firm was looking for target companies to acquire as part of their buy-and-build strategy to create a leading European technology company. The target companies should have an active SME client base outside the adult and entertainment industry.

The solution

By using our search graph in combination with our company engine, the firm found over 100 M&A targets. They analyzed the client space by tagging and grouping the different industries per M&A target. Finally, they conducted a private KYC crawl on the list of clients provided by the target company and compared the results to the Dataprovider.com data to uncover hidden customers.

The result

A smart and thorough analysis of target companies.

Manufacturing
Using structured data to find elevators - and their users
Manufacturing

The challenge

A leading manufacturer of elevators and escalators wanted to create a database solution containing all elevators of their brand installed in the USA, including the locations and companies using the elevators. The manufacturer didn’t have an installment database and had no idea which companies were actually using the elevators on a day-to-day basis - and in which buildings. We helped solve this puzzle.

The solution

After some research, we discovered that all elevator licenses containing the elevator type are inspected by state fire departments and are registered at the US department of state. In a phased model:
- We created a dedicated index of indexed elevator licenses and locations.
- We mapped the locations in an open-source livar building database.
- We mapped the locations of companies indexed at these locations within Dataprovider.com.

Brand protection
Using structured data to fight brand infringement
Brand protection

The challenge

Leading fashion brands were experiencing global problems with brand infringement and counterfeit goods being offered through fake online stores. These fake stores are using the brand to mislead consumers. They’re also damaging the brand image.

The solution

Within Dataprovider.com, every website holds a trust grade, ranging from A to F. A stands for trustworthy, F for being the most unreliable. We filtered out all websites with trust grades E and F. We then searched through the search graph for specific brands and enriched these results with the domain registration and hosting company information and where possible ownership information. This way, the brands could instantly send out the notice and takedown letters.

The result

A quick and thorough way to find and take on infringers.

Market intelligence
Using structured data to get thorough insights into the competition
Market intelligence

The challenge

A leading visitor tracking platform was facing steep European competition by a new competitor. They wanted to know which companies and industries were using the competitive platform and get an overview of the competitor's market share per country and region. This way, they aimed to investigate how the competitor had managed to conquer the market in only a few months.

The solution

We discovered the solution in our public search engine. We tracked the competitive technology over time, since its early beginnings. Data showed where the technology was used and by which companies and in combination with which other 3rd party solutions. The common denominator was an integration within a popular platform for inbound marketing and sales.

The result

A quick and thorough insight into the competitor’s rise.

Cross industry
Introducing a data scoring system to get unique insights into websites and companies
Cross industry

The challenge

The internet contains just too much data to grasp and understand. Scoring data helps you prioritize goals and integrate them into your strategy. Bundling values into a score makes it easier to find companies that matter and track company performance over time. Based on this information, you can take action whenever you need to. In good and bad times.

The solution

Within the Dataprovider.com database, we created unique proprietary scores to filter web data in a structured way. Our heartbeat score indicates growth on a company level. Our economic footprint shows the results of this heartbeat score. Our trust grade informs you about the trustworthiness of a web operation. Our security score indicates the level of proper security. And our cloud score shows the 'cloud savviness' of a website.

The result

A scoring system that gives you unique insights into websites.

Cross Industry
Using structured data to enrich business information
Cross Industry

The challenge

Traditional business information providers excel in keeping track of the registered truth, as well as the legal entities of a company. But what if a business changes or expands? Imagine a bar starting a hotel. Or a software company launching a lifestyle app. These activities overrule the registered truth.

The solution

How do you know what a business is doing today? By checking its website. Every month, we index company websites to keep track of changes. If something changes, our database creates an enrichment alert.

The result

Standard Industrial Classification based on the content of a website.

Cyber Security
Securing websites with a real-time, data-driven security score
Cyber Security

The challenge

Are my suppliers secure? Is my investment at risk? Is my country at risk, due to a lack of security at companies? These are important questions for security professionals at every level of an organization - and for internet criminals as well. How to help the professionals and keep out the criminals?

The solution

To get an instant overview, we developed a security score for every website. This score indicates a website’s risk level. We took all technical aspects into account, as well as open ports, encryption, privacy, sensitive information distribution, etc. These indicators determine if a website and the company that owns or runs it are at risk.

The result

An easy tool to be and stay secure.
