About Us

Core Values

The user guides us, and we listen

We start with the end user and work backward. The customer’s idea is always right. It is incumbent on us to deliver a quality product that answers to our integrity, highest ethical standards and aligns with our mission to capture data so that we can provide a richer user experience and customized product.

Think strategically

Our focus is on strategic ways to better understand business needs and offer solutions. We do this by having open dialogue and asking our teams and business partners to think and put plans in place that meet the needs of those we serve — customers who make use of data to get more business done.


We value innovation that enables business. By providing products and services that meet the needs of today’s diverse industries, we deliver data-based products and news that move commerce forward. We use our expertise, integrity, quality, our care with data and content philosophy to guide us and those we have relationships with. As we examine competitors, give our product users priority and keep their best interest in mind. This approach allows new ideas to surface so that we better help business professionals and the economy grow.


By treating one another with respect and communicating openly, we foster collaboration and maintain individual accountability. By encouraging the best ideas to surface from anywhere in the organization and from our business partners, we create an environment that appreciates and values of diverse perspectives and expertise.
