On Friday of last week, we opened up BankProspector v2.0 exclusively to our current members in a private alpha program, and the response has been great! The feedback received thus far is going straight into development to hone the application further.
Current members love the real time data, and are hooked on seeing bank call report updates come in throughout the day. New banks are being added to member watchlists and new tags are being added to banks constantly.
What’s still to come? Contacts, contacts, contacts. Current members have seen that in version 2.0 we implemented the same LinkedIn connectivity functionality that was present in BankProspector v1.0, but for v2.0, we inked a deal with Jigsaw, the leader in professional contact information, that will give members the ability to seamlessly purchase contact information for extremely targeted bank personnel at reduced prices (for instance, approximately $1 per contact). As well, we’ll be launching enhanced graphs and charts to help visually represent the rich data that is available.
As we continue to listen and respond to the feedback from current members invited to our private alpha BankProspector v2.0 launch, we’ll be making enhancements and updates to the product in preparation for launching it more broadly to those who had previously signed up for our free state and US data product or our newsletter, followed by the general public.
