Earlier today, WIRED featured Panjiva in an article on “Cool Search Engines That Are Not Google.” Also, BusinessWeek is now featuring Panjiva as one of “America’s Most Promising Startups” as well as on their “Next” innovation blog. Thought I’d pass along…
WIRED: “Panjiva tracks overseas factories and their U.S. customers by indexing publicly available customs data. It’s a great way to keep track of where your competition is getting their products made and by whom.”
BusinessWeek: “Panjiva uses algorithms to clean up and analyze data to score suppliers on, for instance, whether business is growing, stable, or declining. ‘We take multiple data sources and triangulate them to see if they are telling you the same story,’ says Psota, 29, chief technology officer.
BusinessWeek: “Panjiva plans to launch a function this summer that will allow sources to apply to add data to the platform to create a richer pool and ‘democratize the availability of information,’ says Green. ‘There are a lot of companies doing innovative things and we’ll accomplish more by harnessing their innovations to serve clients.’”
