This is best suited if you are doing cold outreach and want to get in touch with people with specific roles, in specific industries, and locations. For example, I can choose the United States or some states therein and then choose a number of employees in a company, revenue and also the level of seniority (CXO, VP etc.)of the particular person and find his details. Adapt.io gives the correct email address of these people along with the complete information of the company. As far as prospecting and contact discovery is concerned there is not scenario where Adapt.io is not useful.

There are many scenarios that make data.com well suited, but most specifically, it works very well when looking for contacts within a certain zip code. You can sort and find information about these contacts and pay by points. This helps because you are able to pick and choose which you want to pay for.

Company info in terms of revenue and number of employees Contact discovery in terms of location, role and industry Read full review Data.com is a great way to find out accurate revenue and employee numbers for companies across various industries. Data.com's filtering capabilities allow our team to quickly find the ideal prospects to reach out to. Data.com, being owned by Salesforce, allows for a seamless integration into our CRM. This saves us an incredible amount of time and ensures data accuracy. Read full review Cons I don't see any need of improvement Industry Filters can be more specific. Number of credits are less. Read full review Some contacts can be old. Perhaps they could consider validating some that are older than 5 years. They don't always detect duplicate companies. For example, I've added the same company twice before, I don't understand how they allow that, or prevent others from adding duplicates. It doesn't happen very often,, only occasionally. Sometimes data.com will "autocorrect" a job title incorrectly. For example, entering "Director of People & Culture" will autocorrect it to "Director of peopleandculture" If you don't catch it, it looks pretty bad for the next person who wants to view the contact.

Very intuitive to use and I've never had any confusion with features. Anyone can create an account and use the platform simply by adding a contact or company into the database to earn points. It's a great option if you don't have budget for lists or pay services. It is easy to use and anyone can benefit from it.

Whenever I've had a question their support has responded pretty quickly and gives me exactly what I am looking for. I have not had any technical issues so I can't speak to issues there, but as far as general questions from a free user they have impressed me with how quickly they get back to me and the thoroughness of their answers.

Adapt.io id pretty much similar to all the above tools (Lusha,
, hunter, D&B hoovers) The interface is easy on the eyes and the search time is quick. However the most important criterion is the accuracy of the data, if you get incorrect email ID and you use your SMTP to send mails with incorrect IDs it will spoil you domain reputation and your domain may even get black listed. The accuracy of Adapt is good. however there were cases where the company information was not available, this is in comparison to the tools like Lusha and Seamless. Good tool to use but maybe a bit expensive since the credits given are less

may not be the direct competitor of Data.com, but for the services I was using, Workfront looked a little better when it comes to the user interface. But Data.com definitely had more powerful features & better integration capabilities. Also, it was easier to play around with the customer journey in Data.com as compared to other tools I have used in the past.

You gain points for contact information when you add contact information. Since it is a free resource, there are no real negative impacts. Read full review ScreenShots
