From the August 2000 issue of Entrepreneur

From providing a sales-prospecting tool-one click shows you names of possible customers culled from a list of numbering more than 15 million-to offering private Web space for storing information about sales calls you've made, Sales.com aims to be your one-stop Internet selling tool. Another plus: "Briefings" provide concise but informative snapshots of more than 100,000 companies, so you can hone pitches to suit prospects. A strength of Sales.com is its strong support from very big players, including Siebel Systems (which owns a chunk of the company) and Sun Microsystems. The technology here is slick, but it's also "transparent," meaning it works well enough that you won't notice it.
