What you can do using Fame

Fame contains very useful, comprehensive data. Its real power comes from how it can help you create searches to find companies with specific profiles and do detailed analyses on individual or groups of companies (including your existing customers). Fame can help you:

• Assess a company’s financial strength

• Find companies that match your profiles including size, industry, and location – you can combine hundreds of criteria

• Find all companies in the same corporate “family” and look at complex organizational structures in clear diagrams. This unique data set includes international and domestic ownership information

• Compile a detailed picture of a company that includes background information, financial history plus relevant news, M&A deals and rumours

• Analyze a company in relation to its peers

• Show your results graphically to help you interpret and display your research

• Monitor companies and peer groups you’re interested in using Fame’s flexible alerts

• Export your results for analysis or business development projects

• Plug Fame data into your own database, CRM system or spreadsheet so you know more about your clients and prospects
