Company Methods

All API calls that return a company object will return a field called influence_id. This is a unique identifer for this company that can be used in association with the Influence Explorer API. Bizvizz uses Influence Explorer to retrieve all campaign contribution data for our companies. In order to also access this data as a developer, one must also get an API key from Influence Explorer and make the proper calls to their API.
