Likelihood to Recommend

Crunchbase

The data is outdated and has significant gaps. It is mostly a replication of what is easily and publicly available, with little value added. Their predatory subscription model includes no notice of renewal and they are very antagonistic towards their customers.

Klue

If you're in a space with more than 1 or 2 competitors, you need Klue to help you keep track of them. Otherwise, you'll be spending too much energy doing that and you'll be likely to miss important information. It makes light work out of keeping battle cards up to date, relevant, and accessible for your sales team.

Pros

Crunchbase

  • Crunchbase has an easy-to-navigate user interface. The bar at the top of the screen that shows the different data points available on companies is particularly helpful for quick navigating.
  • The ability to make and import lists and save searches is helpful for customizing the software to your particular needs.
  • The web and mobile app data that Crunchbase offers is very helpful to gauge trends and interest in companies for diligence purposes.

Klue

  • Gathering publicly available intelligence - news, blogs, reports, etc.
  • Organizing intel into customized, meaningful buckets by the competitor.
  • Creating useful battle cards for sales.
  • Capturing news and info as you come across it online.

Cons

Crunchbase

  • 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.

  • Doesn't currently capture reviews (like this one).
  • Battle card templates are limited.
  • Push alerts when changes occur on tracked pages.

Alternatives Considered

Crunchbase

Crunchbase is the best resource for prospecting startups hands down. TechTarget has a lot of useful info, but I found it to be inaccurate where it mattered most. Crunchbase's data seems more accurate, and is also easier to use. Not the most exact comparison, but they offer similar background information.

Klue

Klue seems much easier to use, and also had a better engagement experience during our trial period. They're insanely customer focused.

Return on Investment

Crunchbase

  • The best use we get out of Crunchbase Pro is staying on top of funding, mergers, and acquisitions. This has really helped us to identify key target accounts for our ABM strategy.
Parker O'Very | TrustRadius Reviewer

Klue

  • Helped navigate competitive sales opportunities and deflect objections while laying landmines of our own.
  • Given our deal size, the payback/ROI is virtually instant.
  • The entire company is more in tune with the competitive landscape.
