  • Research Quality versus invested Time is absolutely efficient and motivating. Quick Research or Standard Alerts, both are done easily with instant results.
  • Usability of the User Interface in any of the modules is very supportive. New Team members are trained in short time. Very much self-explaining.
  • The connectivity between the modules is great and saves time. Each module has its key topic, but in Connection with the other modules this practical tool turns out to be even smarter more and powerful.

Cons
Crunchbase Inc.
  • Notifications - Something similar to TweetDeck would be nice, so that when news breaks it could be an immediate fact.
  • Honestly dont add too much because you don't want it to become more of a social tool with cluttered info, keep it straight to the point.

Crunchbase Inc.
They give standard answers. They are not a customer first business. I tried to cancel my subscription after using it for only 1 week as we found the information was outdated and not at all useful. But they would not cancel the year long subscription I mistakenly signed up for

Alternatives Considered
Crunchbase Inc.
Crunchbase is definitely bottom of the barrel in this space. At similar pricing models, all competitors I have tried have significantly bigger and more updated databases. Crunchbase may have been great sometime in the past, but they are not worth engaging now.
