The latest and most up-to-date call and contact centre database available to the market.

CMP Europe Ltd., a leading provider of business to business marketing services and information to hi-tech markets; and Corpdata, one of the UK’s leading information & data service providers, have joined forces to produce the most comprehensive and definitive call centre database available in the UK, The Call Centre DataFile (1). The Call Centre DataFile has been created through industry research and by combining CMP Europe’s (2) expertise and resources and Corpdata’s extensive UK call & contact centre data.

Following extensive research across more than c.9 000 UK call & contact centres (3), organisations interested in the call & contact centre industry are now able to benefit from a database of the most significant c.14 000 decision-makers’ details plus comprehensive analysis of the function and technologies used within the call centre sites. As well as high quality data, The Call Centre DataFile provides users with the added advantages of:

- Current and frequently updated information: Updated every six months via CD-ROM, the Call Centre DataFile has an average age that is no more than 3 months old.

- Numerous search criteria: The list provides thirty-six different criteria for selecting data (3), enabling customers to be able to search the data by any combination of the given fields.

Clive Ellings, Executive Director CMP Europe commented, “Combining our resources with Corpdata has enabled this sophisticated marketing tool to be developed for the benefit of our customers, and reaffirms our corporate strategy to build our portfolio of products through organic growth, acquisitions and joint ventures. There is no other list rental or database product in the call & contact centre industry which can offer customers this level of contacts and sites, nor quality of information.”

Andy Smith, Managing Director for Corpdata added, “This joint venture draws on the major strengths of both organisations to create an innovative and exciting product which can not be matched elsewhere”
