?In today?s fast-paced business environment, companies need to leverage every advantage they can to help put them in front of their competition,? said Marc Kirshbaum, president of Experian?s Business Information Solutions group. ?BizGo provides users with the freedom to explore business prospects from a mobile device, opening the door for new opportunities that may have been missed while they were tied to their desks.?
