Hoover’s buys e-mail tech firm

From Austin Business Journal website: “Hoover’s Inc. acquired e-mail technology of a Visible Path Corp. of Foster City, Calif. The technology will be used in Hoover’s Connect, a program that works similar to LinkedIn Corp. by connecting users to potential clients through e-mail address books. Details of how Visible Path staff will be merged with Austin-based Hoover’s are still being discussed, says spokeswoman Lisa Glass. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, and the purchase will not impact employment. Hoover Connect has been in a testing phase for a year. The program became available as a paid service Wednesday.”
