About Our Data

Unique in the Industry

We are unique in the industry because we are the only organisation using industry leading technology and advanced AI techniques to drive our data capture and a call centre to verify all our UK B2B data to ensure completeness, accuracy, and GDPR/PECR compliance.

Built over the last 50 years, our dataset has evolved over time now incorporating sources from directory partners, open data, telecom providers, Companies House, PAF, credit reference agencies and other data partners.

Data Refresh

Businesses change, and people come and go, so it makes sense that data will become outdated.

At 118 Group, we recognise that people need up-to-date data to make crucial business decisions so within our 70-seat call centre we have highly trained agents who call each organisation to confirm their details and maintain the integrity of our database. We make over 12,000 calls daily to maintain our exceptional standards of accuracy.

Regular data updates ensure timely information delivery to customers on an ongoing basis, our data licensing contracts allow for updates passed to you on a daily, weekly or monthly schedule. We can tailor each extract to the layout required for ease of uploading to internal systems including bespoke lists of values where required.

Our update files also provide you with new records added within your target market, businesses that have ceased trading, updates to phone numbers, contacts, emails and employee numbers.

Because of our high-quality standards, data in our database is updated regularly, and changes are made within 24 hours. 118 Group has the most accurate data in the industry and is the ‘go-to’ for businesses looking for B2B data solutions and marketing campaigns.
