We are excited to announce the launch of the Owler API, a data-as-a-service solution for competitive business information. The API allows sales operations and other business professionals to integrate our invaluable crowdsourced information on more than 10 million companies with their internal business systems.
We currently offer two tiers of API information:
1. a free, basic API that provides information such as company name, address, phone number, and website URL
2. a fee-based API that provides extensive information on company revenue, employees, and industry competitors
Our API rounds out our suite of business intelligence solutions that help members stay on top of their industry and outsmart their competition.
Included in the Owler API are all the relevant business data fields available on our online company profiles:
Company Background Information
• Company ID
• Primary name
• Short name
• Founded date
• Company type (private, public, etc.)
• Ticker symbol
• Stock exchange listed
• Employee count
• Acquisition news
• Headquarters address (city, state, country)
• Phone number
• Geo-location data (latitude and longitude numbers)
• CEO name
• CEO image
• CEO approval ratings
• Industry group
• Competitor News
“Access to the right information at the right time is key to achieving and maintaining a competitive edge,” said Jim Fowler, CEO of Owler. “Anyone who depends on critical company data — such as sales operations looking to integrate information for territory setting with their CRM systems — will find the Owler API invaluable.”
Our unique crowdsourced information model allows members to vote on data importance and contribute thoughts on competitors and polls of interest about any business. We also source information through news articles, publicly available government documents, press releases, and company-produced collateral. Our API provides data on over 10 million businesses worldwide, which early partners have already found incredibly valuable to their business platforms. Our beta program saw interest from over 100 companies and we selected 20 early beta partners to test out the API.
“Owler has been an integral part of the BOB.tv platform,” said Tony Lorenz, CEO and Co-Founder of BOB.tv and beta user of the Owler API. “We pride ourselves in providing best-of-business industry content to our users in the markets we serve. Owler is helping us provide increasingly relevant and actionable business information to these markets, and soon others, as we build our business over time.”
