Find out more information about a company by checking its About Us page on its website. Business intelligence companies such as Hoovers.com or Manta.com can also provide more information about companies.
Checking a company's website is the first place to consider if you are seeking more information about that company. Accurate and updated information is likely to be available on the business's website under its About Us tab. Usually this is located either at the top or bottom of their homepage. For example, clicking on the About Us page at ShopBop.com provides insight on when BOP started and other historical facts as of 2015. Searching on Manta.com provides brief information that includes details such as the number of employees and annual revenue.
Hoovers.com offers more in-depth coverage of business information than even some of the business's own website. For instance, searching for information about BOP reveals that the parent company is Amazon and essential financial data such as estimated annual sales. Services such as Hoovers.com often require a paid subscription, though Hoovers does offer free trials to companies. Its databases may also be accessible through university or college libraries, making it available to the public for anyone who holds a library card.
