Owler provides a rotating set of competitive intelligence reports. Users simply sign up for the free service and indicate their company and top competitors. The system then sends a weekly alert covering various topics. This week’s “Social Stats” report provided Twitter and Facebook Followers. Next week’s covers corporate blogs.
Owler also provides a daily business news alerting service, company profiles, funding data, and user polls.
Coincidentally, Owler’s founder Jim Fowler also founded crowd sourced vendor Jigsaw, which he sold off to SFDC a few years back. Jigsaw was rebranded Data.com and is now one of the major sales intelligence services.
