New features in version 2.6.1

In version 2.6.1 of Find Businesses, we have expanded the functionality to include a new type of fast search and added a few new time saving features. Specified location string (no verification) is the latest search type. They are similar to No location searches in speed, but make an attempt at being a little more location specific. You also now have the ability to download multiple runs at once into a zip file.

New features in version 2.5.1

Version 2.5.1 is a bit more feature packed than the last few versions. We heard many feature requests come in. Some are still under development, but this version really focuses on 2 things: simplifying and speeding up the process. Things are now simpler with the ability to share a link to get feedback and questions answered from a subject matter expert.

Artificial Intelligence Won’t Steal Your Private Equity Job, But It Will Make You Better at It

The robots are coming for your jobs! There’s scarcely a day that goes by without someone publishing an article about how artificial intelligence (AI) is making inroads into a given industry. And while the reality is far more nuanced, there is some truth to the idea that automation is gearing up to replace a portion of the labor force.

New features in version 2.1.1

You asked and we listened. The release of Find Businesses version 2 was a big leap forward in making udu more approachable for non-expert users, but there were some features missing that you all pointed out. Getting notified when your runs finish, defaulting to using your max amount of seats for each run to get it finished faster, an easier way to run all 50 states on your project, and better keyword suggestions from the Keywords tool are just some of the new features that you asked for. Version 2.1.1 of Find Businesses has all of these and more. Our ears are always open for suggestions to improving the product, so keep the good ideas coming.
