Talent intelligence and analysis is increasingly becoming a critical role in ensuring the success of any business. The importance of efficient and accurate talent intelligence data gathering cannot be overstated.

When it comes to gathering data for talent intelligence, there are several methods available, but they vary greatly in terms of accuracy, speed, and cost. Manual web scraping is one of the most common methods, but it can be time-consuming and may result in incomplete or inaccurate data. On the other hand, purchasing data from third-party providers can be expensive and may not always be tailored to specific needs.

When it comes to gathering secondary data, there is now a faster and more reliable way to achieve this. With Lix’s LinkedIn API, users can access real-time data on job postings, companies, industries, and individuals with the ability to extract contact details, full LinkedIn profiles, and more. This means faster data collection and a higher level of accuracy, as the data is updated by the user and can be extracted in real time.
