LOS ANGELES – Sept. 10, 2015 – Outward Media, Inc. (OMI), a leading provider of multi-channel marketing data, today announced that its BizFACTZ business contact platform has been named the bronze winner in the Small or Medium Business Service of the Year category in the Best in Biz 2015 International Awards program. BizFACTZ and other award winners from around the world are now featured on the Best in Biz website.
As the largest and most economical business contact database designed to drive sales, profits and customer growth for organizations across a broad range of industries, BizFACTZ is managed by OMI in partnership with Data-Graphix LLC. Business customers can use the self-service BizFACTZ platform to obtain verified multi-channel marketing data to reach their ideal customers and prospects and achieve greater success in their sales and marketing campaigns. The platform contains information on 41 million business contacts overall, including 23 million business locations and 17 million associated email addresses.
“Maintaining the industry’s highest levels of data accuracy – so that we never fail to exceed clients’ expectations for sales growth and campaign success -- is what sets BizFACTZ and OMI apart,” said Paula Chiocchi, president and CEO of OMI. “Innovation has been the key to our competitive edge, and we’d like to thank the Best in Biz Awards program for recognizing the value that BizFACTZ delivers to the market.”
BizFACTZ leverages OMI’s more than 16 years of data-driven marketing experience, including its expertise in data accuracy, data integration and intelligent B2B customer analysis.

“Having returned as a third time judge, I continue to be amazed with the innovation that companies are achieving. Each year, the competition has been fierce, and narrowing down the choices has been a challenge,” said Sharon Bennett, Bennett Business Connections. “In the end, it comes down to the originality of the company and the problems they solve. I congratulate all the entrants for their willingness to share their achievements and I imagine they will all succeed in their sectors.”
