MIAMI, Oct. 27, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Datamyne (www.datamyne.com), a leader in global business intelligence based on multinational trade data, announced that it has completed the acquisition of Zepol Corporation, a Minneapolis-based provider of online trade data tools.
"As two tech start-ups launched over the last decade, Datamyne and Zepol helped redefine and revitalize trade data driven business intelligence," explains Brendan McCahill, Datamyne CEO. "As one, we are positioned to claim leadership in the sector."
"Both organizations are ranked among the top trade data providers in the highly competitive US market and are groundbreaking innovators in database access, research and analysis technologies," McCahill says. "Together, our combined assets make us an industry powerhouse and advance our goal of being the world's largest provider of global commercial trade information."
McCahill will continue as CEO of Datamyne, and will also lead an integration team that includes Zepol CEO Paul Rasmussen. Zepol offices and data facilities will be incorporated in the Datamyne network.
"Global market dynamics demand that information providers offer a bounty of trade data content and resources. Joining Datamyne allows us to give our customers a view of global trade that is more comprehensive and more finely detailed," says Rasmussen.
"We couldn't be more excited to offer our customers the expanded resources of a now stronger company," adds McCahill. "We expect the new talent and data assets in Minneapolis will help us accelerate product development and set the standard for decision-making support of global marketing, transport, logistics and supply chain management."
