Access to LinkedIn profiles can be a useful tool for business-development executives, and, recognizing that, financial-services-intelligence provider Ipreo integrated them into its BD Suite of investor-prospecting and customer-relationship-manager solutions.

Ipreo, which also provides productivity solutions for corporations and investment banks, said users of its BD Suite, which is powered by the Bigdough database of institutional investor contacts and profiles, will have direct one-click access to their LinkedIn network before the end of the second quarter.

The LinkedIn integration includes access to personal and company profiles, relational information, communications tools, connection lists, degrees of separation, and the ability to send LinkedIn invitations.

Ipreo managing director of global products and applications O’Hara Macken said:

LinkedIn is one of the core business information and management tools widely used by our capital markets, research sales and trading, and corporate investor relations clients. By integrating LinkedIn with our BD Suite, we are furthering our mission of giving our clients seamless access to critical intelligence throughout their natural workflow.
