Data sources

The most reliable sources on the market


IKO works with more than 60,000 sources of information, including Reuters, Zoominfo, Bloomberg, Marketmonitor, LexisNexis, etc. We select only the most reliable and official sources on the market.

Our premium sources are press articles, news feeds, contact databases, company databases, industry reports, corporate transcripts, etc. About 80% of our sources are private or require premium subscriptions.

We also monitor 700m corporate web pages to detect buying signals and sales activities (clients, partners, technologies used, etc.).

Texts and data are centralized at a contact or company level, and then filtered to match the territory of each IKO System user:

The sharpest intelligence, focused on your targets.



IKO allows you to import third party sources such as your CRM data, marketing automation leads, address books, Excel files or social contact files.

The data you upload to IKO then enters a validation process to ensure the reliability of the information:

  matching of the uploaded data with a company/contact profile referenced from a premium source (we already have 30m contacts and 7m companies in Europe)

 selecting the sub-data that matches with data already identified by IKO

 checking the new data reliability (the company existence, the matching of the phone number with the contact location, the correct email address).

This process ensures the data is up-to-date and reliable. Your uploads remain anonymous as IKO works in private silos per user : no single user has access to another user’s data.


Proprietary lead intelligence

IKO uses machine learning and other algorithms to detect buying patterns and signals from raw data, and also generates proprietary lead intelligence based on the collected structured or unstructured information.

Our technology spots buying signals that make sense for a specific territory to detect new business opportunities, business risks or high-priority leads.

What is unique with IKO is the ability to detect and score 30 million potential leads in Europe who match with your lead generation strategy.
