🤑 Use Case

Can help understand and enrich CRM-systems with company size (by employees), address, etc. We use it internally to understand how many potential users are within an organization.

🛠️ Setup

CVR Virk is very simple if you already have a user at CVR. If not, you might need to wait a few weeks for them to set you up. In the meantime, we have an internal database that we can duplicate if you reach out.

Step #1: Get login credentials

Follow the guide on CVR’s own website:https://datacvr.virk.dk/artikel/system-til-system-adgang-til-cvr-data. You need to send them an email with some basic info. It's completely free to use.

Step #2: Log in

Once you have your login credentials, simply input the username and password in the Connector configuration window. The tables contain millions of rows, so its takes a while to extract the first time.
