Searchable business listings are now searchable and exportable in MBO. Business list data willl include sales information, employment data, and contact information. USA wide business listings are designed for use in market analysis, lead generation, and business analysis in support of marketing and sales campaigns. Build prospect lists, explore market potential, and create comprehensive competitor analysis.

Map Business Online users can now access business data by selecting Business Listing buttons on the application toolbars. Map users can now search for business listings by:

  • Business name or location type
  • Geographic areas of interest (ZIP code)
  • Industry types - NAICS or SIC codes
  • Circle or polygon
  • Company sales values
  • Employee count estimates

Lower business list acquisition costs by searching and filtering data geographically.
