What do you do when you want to find out everything you can about a particular company, business, or professional? Well, you can search Google for the business and then visit each site individually and cull the pertinent information. Chances are there will be hits at the top of the results list from Crunchbase, LinkedIn, and Quora.
But … what if you could visit a business web page, click a button, and instantly pull up information from all three of these top business information sources? Well, you can if you use Google Chrome as your browser. Brand new extension Polaris Insights will enable the magic. The CrunchBase column includes funding information, the LinkedIn column includes your connections within the company, and the Quora column lists some of the Q&A conversations about the company.
Polaris Insights is Chrome only for now, but a Firefox extension appears to be in the works. Great tool for business research and blogging!
