Salesforce is able to integrate third party corporate information from Hoovers, but with smaller recruiting firms choosing to incorporate other less costly search capabilities from the likes of pipl.com or zoominfo.com, you have to wonder that with a greater number of firms using more than a single source of information, Is there an application, preferably open source, way of validating multiple sources into a usable form where you can easily incorporate the information into your database?
I'm willing to look at just about any system or suite that will allow me to search in a variety of social networks, are there
any Chinese social networks?
I haven't inquired about Avature as yet. When I looked at their website, I noticed their languages are in English & Spanish. Though I require a system that can work in classical & simplfied Chinese as well as English.
I was also referring to CRM application or service that can incorporate information from services like Hoovers, Reuters as well as deep web search crawlers like pipl and zoominfo.
Can they do this?

Have you explored avature.net? It's a CRM tool that has open web feature that pulls from quite a few of the social media sites.
Current integrations are Pipl, LinkedIN, Xing, Jigsaw, Spoke, any job board database. The deep web crawler allows you to write and store search strings so you can run them simultaneously and/or you can use a resume filter which is a lexical analyzer that crawls the deep web specifically for resumes. The application skin is available in English and Spanish today and soon to be in French, German, and Portuguese. However, from a search and data storage perspective it can support any language and language characters.
