This outperformance is primarily driven by the growing traction of the company’s go-to-market intelligence platform due to elevated consumer demand for data and insights. The company also benefits from its resilient subscription-based model amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Moreover, ZoomInfo’s top line in the third quarter of fiscal 2020 was aided by solid demand for its FormComplete, intent and InboxAI product with an increase in adoption of 33%, 67% and 40%, respectively.

ZoomInfo also introduced several enhancements to its platform such as a real-time intelligence feed, mobile experience improvements to Quick Search, and redesigns of contact profile alerts and the homepage. The company anticipates these innovations to fuel user engagement on its platform.

Notably, the company ended the third quarter with more than 720 customers, with $100K or greater in annual contract value, compared to 650 customers in the second quarter.
