At Vainu our goal is to have the best possible overall picture of all the world’s businesses. Since Vainu was launched two years ago we’ve grown to operate in multiple countries and we now have a five figure user base. Vainu is mainly used by B2B sales teams and has been proved to increase sales with great numbers.
Today, we make a small part of our data accessible for a public preview. We’ve made lots of changes under the hood to improve the way Vainu collects, reads and portrays data. We’re now proud to announce major leaps forward with the technology behind finding out how businesses around the world work and how to convert that knowledge to actionable sales leads.
Making parts of Vainu accessible for the public is an important step in our journey as this will teach us more about the demand of Vainu’s insights and let us see what impact our data has in a larger scale.
As of today Vainu has started to read everything ever written to find insights from all companies around the globe. By developing technology that is able to understand natural language Vainu will collect myriads of facts about the companies. All this fact is now accessible through new search functionalities in a brand new UI.
Named Entry Recognition – NER
Whenever Vainu detects a named entity in text, Vainu searches for a matching companies in its database and collects all the hard facts stated in that text. These factual statements are then added to the database of claims where reasoning algorithms automatically calculate the most likely truth using machine learning that is taught to use all the checked facts.
"Vainu will learn more about all the companies in the world every day."
This means that Vainu will learn more about all the companies in the world every day. The service will become better in challenging new data thus eventually rendering higher quality data continuously.
Statements mentioned in news or websites "Our revenues in Q2 have increased" will improve Vainu's company database every time they appear because of the new parser Vainu has implemented. By understanding meanings in natural language Vainu is able to turn unorganized piles of data into an organized, fact checked, and actionable company information.
“By understanding meanings in natural language Vainu is able to turn unorganized piles of data into an organized, fact checked, and actionable company information.”
New search functionality
We believe that salespeople are creative geniuses, who need a tool that they can use to express what they want. Deep down, every salesperson has great intuition, who would be the best prospects for the product or service that they are selling. However, describing these causalities and intuitions is difficult. Vainu has spent lots of time to design a new interface where multiple dimensions of a data are easier to access for its users. Now with a single search bar, thousands of dimensions of data can be combined to a one meaningful, actionable, and lead-generating query.
