GDL can be used for all sorts of purposes. Here are three of the most common uses we have found:

1) One-stop shop for career information
2) Student research tool
3) Business research and analysis

1) One-stop shop for career information

GDL enables users to search one central database of multiple directories for specific keywords related to their job search, for example by a particular industry.

Users are then able to access more detailed information on each company, including basic contact information, web and email addresses, names of key employees, company description and financial information. This enables users to match companies to her own requirements, for example based on where they are located, and mark those that are of interest.

Lists can then be exported to Excel so that the data can be used in various ways, for example by mail merging the address details into a covering letter for CV submissions or using the phone numbers as a call list to see if the organisations have any current vacancies.

GDL allows broad cross-searching of all the 52+ directories or more targeted searching by selecting specific directories. Users then use advanced search functionality to further drill drown to find specific information. Records can be marked and saved for later use and also exported to Excel and then used for research or marketing purposes. GDL eliminates much of the legwork, allowing a better focus and understanding on the content.
