Data Co-op Update Logs - Issue #32

Note from the Founders:

“August was a busy month, the team rolled out a brand new product (Email Validation), completed our new Company ID 1.0 (cc_ID) model, and added two key new features (work & education history) to B2B. Excited to share details!


The September product release is focused on improving data quality, firmographic entity resolution, and exposing new work and education history features.  



Products Affected


New Product


Email Validation Export

5x5 has productized tens of billions of observed email opens, clicks, and bounces into a 1B+ unique email monthly delivery.

New ML Model

Company ID (cc_ID)

Universal Person, B2B Contact, IP2Company, Firmographics 

The cc_id model establishes a parent record from a cluster of similar company records, based on a programmatic analysis of observed data, company and contact data, web-redirections, and geo-spatial signal analysis. The cc_id provides members with high quality firmographic domain linkage.


NEW PRODUCT DETAIL: Email Validation

For the last two years, the Co-op has been observing tens of billions of email validation signals, linking all common hashes and last seen / validation statuses into a single record for each email. Now for the first time, we are productizing access to this data asset and will be updating it on a monthly basis.


The Co-op leveraged the ML models from up_ID to improve the quality of firmographics 3.0. The higher quality firmographic linkage provided by the cc_ID will improve the entity resolution in the IP2Company and increase the quality within the UP and B2B contact files.

Here is an example of how the new model rolls up different domains within the Walmart Corporation:

Before cc_ID:

With cc_ID, parent domain identified as: → → → → → →


  1. Launching the beta program for the new categorical Intent Stream later in September
  2. Adding company and bio descriptions to UP and B2B exports
  3. Improving entity resolution and linkage in UP model 2.0
  4. Expanding Primary_Industry codes from 148 to 420 categories
