LAS VEGAS, Nev., February 24, 2014 – DiscoverOrg, a leading provider of information technology marketing and sales intelligence tools used by top IT vendors, was presented Friday night with a Bronze Stevie® Award in the New Marketing Solution category at the eighth annual Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service.

The Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service are the world’s top sales awards, contact center awards and customer service awards. The Stevie Awards organizes several of the world’s leading business awards shows including the prestigious American Business Awards and International Business Awards.

The awards were presented to honorees during a gala banquet on Friday at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. More than 400 nominated customer service and sales executives from the United States and several other countries attended.

Over 1,500 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were evaluated in this year’s competition, an increase of 36 percent over 2013. Finalists were determined by the average scores of 129 professionals worldwide, acting as preliminary judges.

DiscoverOrg was recognized for its SMB and CFO/Finance datasets, which were introduced in mid-2013. The SMB dataset has complete profiling of more than 8,000 U.S. businesses with less than 1,000 employees, and included more than 45,000 contacts. The CFO/Finance dataset maps out information on finance departments in more than 1,800 corporations, including members of the Fortune 1000, the Forbes 400 and the S&P 500. It features more than 43,000 contacts from the CFO on down, including detailed information on reporting structures and installed infrastructure.
