WebClipDrop, a sourcing/data extraction tool started by industry vet Doug Berg is changing its name to ZAPinfo. The news came via email to their users over the past weekend.
According the company, the change came about over confusion of the name itself.
Apparently people could not quite grasp the short three worded moniker. Naming a product is always a challenge in HR technology so even though they thought Web-Clip-Drop was a cute way to describe the tool, they wanted to make it even simpler.
…After giving hundreds of demo’s and hearing people call us “Web-Click-Drop”, “Web-Clack-Drop”, “Web-Clip-Board”, and many people begging us to change the darn name, we’ve finally made the move to “ZAPinfo” …We hope the name will be much simpler to remember, and our purpose is easy, we help you Zap info easily across the web, removing hours of data entry, cleaning, updating & research, making recruiters and sales people more productive using our information automation tool.
Users of the tool which is also a Chrome Plugin will notice the new “Z” icon on their browser toolbar.
As for the funding news they have just raise $1.25 million from new investors such as Rally Ventures, Seven Peaks Ventures, and Great North Labs. The money will be used to further growth.
