- What does iRumbo mean?
“I” refers to information and "rumbo" is the Spanish language origin of "rhumb line"
which is a navigation term meaning, "the course navigated by a vessel or aircraft
that maintains a uniform compass heading." Or loosely put we like to say iRUMBO
is your most direct route to your information destination.
- What should I enter in the "Search" box?
The search box queries all fields available within the database. You can enter company
names, solutions, technologies, services, zip codes, city names, states (abbreviated).
- How do I use the fields at the left side?
You can sue the select fields at the left side in conjunction with the free form
search box or without. Keep in mind the two are combined for your search results
i.e. you enter HP in the search box and select "managed service" for a service your
results will be limited to the both. Likewise if you select multiple boxes the results
will be based on at the combined values. You can reset by refreshing your browser
or selecting reset.
- What are the recommended steps to effective a search?
Start broad and narrow your search from there. Start your query with what is most
important to you. If you definitely want a local business starts with the zip code
or location. If you must have a solution hosted start with hosting service. If you
must have someone authorized to sell a vendor like Cisco start with the name search
then start to narrow the search with the selections on the left.
- Where does the profile information come from?
We draw information from publicly available sources to create the basic account
information i.e. company website, business directory listings, financial rankings,
vendor partner locators, user generated content websites and many other sources.
Business owners have the opportunity to manage their own company profile if they
desire. There is no charge to solution providers to be in iRUMBO. If you would like
