Access the full directory: http://leadferret.com/directory/visual-basic-experts

Visual Basic is a programming language developed by Microsoft in 1991 to do what its name describes: provide a programming language that was both easy to learn and use, a basic programming language that was more accessible to more users. While Visual Basic is relatively easy to learn, it can also be used to create complex programs, giving it broad appeal. From Microsoft.com: “‘Visual’ refers to the method used to create what the user sees—the graphical user interface, or GUI. ‘Basic’ refers to the BASIC (Beginners All-Purpose Symbolic Instruction Code) programming language, a language used by more programmers than any other language in the history of computing. You can create useful programs by learning just a few of its features. The following links will get you started with Visual Basic programming; each link includes examples, as well as access to additional information.”

Whether a company is looking to find experts in the Visual Basic Programming Language, or offer a competitive or complimentary product or service, this directory is a promising resource for their next marketing campaign. LeadFerret users will be able to make the most of this directory by having access to the most valuable prospects, with complete information, including email addresses, social media links and more, making it easier to develop marketing campaigns.

LeadFerret Publishes a Directory of GAAP Professionals

Access the full directory at: http://leadferret.com/directory/gaap-professionals

GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) refers to the collection of principles, standards, and conventions used by the United States accounting community for reporting financial information.  These standards are decided on by The American Institute of CPAs and exist to help the accounting community adhere to a minimum level of consistency in financial statements. GAAP covers, at minimum, revenue recognition, balance sheet item classification, and outstanding share measurements. All publicly held companies are required by federal and state securities regulations to report their financial statements in accordance with GAAP standards, which makes people who are experts in the standards to be very valuable indeed.

Whether you’re a company looking to find experts in GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles), or looking to market a product or service that compliments the GAAP standards, this directory of men and women who consider themselves to have expertise in GAAP (regardless of their title), is an excellent starting point.

LeadFerret Launches a Directory of SAP Experts

In 1972, five ex IBM employees in Germany started a small software company, with just one customer. Today that company is a multinational powerhouse, boasting over $3 billion in profits annually. Over the past 42 years, SAP has built itself up to the point where it is considered by many to be one of the best ERP (Enterprise Resources Planning) systems on the market. While competing with companies like Oracle, People soft, and JD Edwards, SAP has managed to carve a name out for itself by providing best business solutions to every kind of industry according to their specific needs, while continuing to be very reliable, and scalable, from small organizations to large multinational companies. The SAP suit contains SAP FI (Finance), CO (Controlling), SD (Sales and Distribution), MM (Material Management), PP (Production Planning), HR (Human Resources), PA (Profitability Analysis) and other modules.

Today LeadFerret, the world’s first 100% free business to business database with complete information including e-mail addresses, announced the release of a specialized directory of SAP Experts across all of these modules. This highly specific directory allows users to search for and access full contact information for self-professed SAP experts, in addition to the millions of records outside that particular scope.

Priding itself on its streamlining of customer support, Zendesk is highly customizable, and integrates with more than 90 solutions, including Salesforce and Get Satisfaction community platforms. Currently used by over 20,000 organizations, Zendesk’s minimal design and maximum convenience make it the customer service platform powerhouse it is.

Whether one is selling a competitive customer service platform, and wants to market to those who use one, or is offering a service that compliments a platform like Zendesk, this directory is an excellent starting point. The marketing potential of this directory is certainly not limited to those two examples, either.
