"Equilar’s research team has been instrumental to providing impeccable analysis for critical transaction discussions and executive compensation-related decisions.

"Companies, boards and compensation professionals recognize Equilar as the industry leader in executive and board data. Our board and management clients demand accurate, consistent and timely information. Equilar helps us deliver on those high expectations across its suite of leading tools and resources. We're proud to call Equilar our partner."
"If recruiters show me a candidate and I put that name into BoardEdge, I can see if the person is connected to our executives or board members, institutional investors or private equity investors. I use Equilar to make sure that I have as much information as I can on the candidates."
"When my sales team was looking at particular companies as new prospects, I immediately thought, ‘I’m going to see who we know over there.’ I ran my directors’ connections through BoardEdge to see if any of them are connected to any of those public companies. We could tap those connections. When you’re looking at a brand-new prospect, how do you get over that wall and make that connection? If you can make that sales call at the board level, that immediately gets sent up to management and you will likely get a call back. The prospect is now in play."
