Hoover's API Developer Blog

It's beta time

Today Hoover's introduced two queries into our beta program; Find Company By Keyword and Get Company Detail. Over the next three weeks, several more will be introduced.

So what does it mean to have an API beta program? For us, it is about understanding the expectations of our partners. Initially this is a controlled release as we work to ensure the scalability of our infrastructure and verify the documentation and examples are complete and accurate.

We encourage you to register for an account and read the documentation. While you may request an API key, they are not active until you are contacted directly by Jeff (he will contact you, he's a great guy).

We expect the beta to be brief, please be patient with us during this period. In the meantime, feel free to post questions to the Forums. Most of the API specific announcements will be made there.
