What is a company search?

In a nutshell, company searches tell you all that you need to know about a particular company or business entity. Ideally, company searches allow you to access all types of data on a company—from general information to precise, in-depth details. Comprehensive company searches like Nexis® provide more thorough information than what you could uncover doing a routine free online search—and are updated much more consistently, to include emerging content that is relevant to your company search.

With Nexis® company search, you can:
  • Move mountains with a click and reduce data overload, with LexisNexis SmartIndexing Technology.
  • This allows you to refine your company search quickly and easily, navigating competitive intelligence sources curated by research experts.
  • Translate global news sources for greater insight, with the ability to translate your results list into 57 supported languages.
  • Get mobile with a news search solution agile enough for your busy schedule. With easy to schedule alerts, Nexis® News App is available on iOS or Android devices.
Why dig deeper?

Having complete background information and timely business intelligence is critical to your company. Company searches can provide you with invaluable research and information that can help you make more strategic and informed decisions to positively impact your business. For instance, a company search can:

  • Uncover hidden connections between people, companies, and assets that could influence how you conduct business
  • Allow you to gain powerful insights into the fundamental details of the competitors in your industry
  • Keep you informed so you can stay ahead of the curve – giving your company a potential competitive advantage
  • Help you pinpoint competitors, new markets, potential partners, vendors, and other business opportunities
