Along with our other Business Databases (Lexis-Nexis, Mergent, and Business Source Premier), Business Insights: Essentials should be on your list of resources to check when you are looking up company information, industry profiles, and market share data.
It is best to look for company information in more than one database, particularly if you are looking for a privately held company. Information on private companies can be difficult to find, as private companies are not required to disclose as much information as public companies. For example, Allenberg Cotton Company is a private company based in Memphis. If you search for this company in both Lexis-Nexis and Business Insights: Essentials, you will unearth a few more details in Business Insights. Details are sometimes all you can find about private companies.
Business Insights: Essentials also has some unique features not found in our other business databases, such as text to speech capabilities and translation tools in several languages.
