Their standout project, Handshakes DATAMART, has truly transformed the way businesses get their hands on company registry data, setting a new benchmark for innovation and effectiveness.

The Handshakes DATAMART project has been a game-changer in the realm of accessing essential data of companies. This online portal enables users to buy and access official company registry data whenever they need it, simplifying the entire process and making it more cost-effective and conducive to data-driven decision-making.

Its customisable data options offer significant benefits by boosting productivity and reducing costs.

With Handshakes DATAMART, the time needed to acquire corporate data has been slashed from up to 32 hours to just 4 hours, representing an impressive 87.5% increase in efficiency. Its capability to deliver tailored data in as little as ten minutes has attracted over 200 users within the initial four months since its launch.

Aside from its efficiency, DATAMART distinguishes itself as the first self-service business data portal tailored specifically to Singapore and Malaysia. Launched in August 2023, it underscores Handshakes' commitment to innovation and adapting to the evolving demands of the industry.

Handshakes DATAMART isn't solely about immediate improvements in efficiency and cost savings; it's also designed with the future in mind. The portal is engineered to accommodate thousands of users simultaneously without compromising performance or user experience, ensuring its durability as a dependable tool for companies with high data request volume and frequency needs.
