Through a new deal with Zoom Information, Amazon.com's A9 search engine provides free summaries describing a person's work history, education, and accomplishments.
Amazon.com Inc.'s A9.com search engine has incorporated Zoom Information Inc.'s index of businesspeople as the default source for people information, the companies said Tuesday.
The ZoomInfo service can be accessed by selecting the "people" box on the A9.com homepage. ZoomInfo provides summaries describing the person's work history, education and accomplishments. ZoomInfo also allows registered users to monitor and manage their own summaries.

"This information is useful in lots of different ways, which we are excited to make it available for our users on A9.com."
Zoom's search technology scans millions of Web sites, press releases, electronic news services, Securities and Exchange Commission filings and other online sources; and then summarizes the information, the Waltham, Mass., company said.
