Likelihood to Recommend
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.

Were it not for the fact that IBM CPQ lacks mobile and tablet applications, I would have recommended it 100%. However, I still have that 99% recommendation rate since this solution has saved us a lot by allowing us to close more sales within a short period by creating a channel where we collaborate with customers by offering coupons, sending price lists and orders.

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

There are tons of Configure, Price and Quote software, but I have not used a lot of them. However, unlike IBM CPQ,
HubSpot Sales Hub
isn’t operated in compliance with any ISO standards and secured in a data center making it easy to leak customer sensitive data such as payment details.
