How ISVWorld helps you finding the right ISVs for your marketing and sales efforts
ISVWorld focuses on ISVs and ISVs only. Our data-collection and classification are largely automated through our proprietary algorithms to scale; that way we can ensure the highest coverage possible for our clients. Today we track around 200,000 ISVs globally, more than any other dataset out there.
We don’t believe in SIC or NAICS codes for ISVs, as many ISVs classify themselves in verticals they serve rather than classifying themselves as software publishers. Our algorithms classify companies by datapoints relevant for your efforts, including segments such as the industries they serve, the application types they sell, the ecosystems they are part of, and much more.
All of the above datapoints can be used to build or narrow down your dataset: so for example you can choose to target companies that already have a cloud-based product VS companies that are still on-premise. Or target companies that use open-source, companies active in IoT, companies with CRM products.
All the ISVs in our platform have a company profile, which summarizes the available information we have for the company. This includes all general information, company descriptions, growth scores, the industries they serve and applications they sell, core areas of the business, key people and contact information, similar companies, and much more...
Finally, the ISV profile also shows or links to 3rd party on the company, from Crunchbase to Cognism, Zoominfo, ranging from review sites to contact data for the ISVs.
