Crunchbase

Crunchbase is well suited for doing a preliminary analysis of a private company. As a result of the user interface being easy to navigate, analysis can be completed in a quick and efficient manner. The web and mobile app data is also likely to be useful for sales personnel to gauge consumer traffic and interest in companies.

LeadCandy

LeadCandy is well suited in both the front and back of the office, along with the staff that is consistently involved in other activities around our school site. It is not as appropriate when the staff does not need to do a lot of searching for emails.

Pros

Crunchbase

  • Funding news - Huge strength to know immediately when a funding round is available.
  • UX/UI super easy to navigate making it a simple tool to use for early sales reps.

LeadCandy

  • Speed- the process from start to finish is rather quick.
  • Innovative-there are a lot of features on LeadCandy that are not on other apps!
  • Remarkable- the feedback from the staff has only consisted of "how nice it is we’ve needed a program like this".

Cons

Crunchbase

  • Timely data. We also use Owler for company funding alerts. Since Owler scans the web for press releases from the set of companies you follow, it is often more "on time" when it comes to major funding rounds. Crunchbase usually catches up within the month.
  • There are data discrepancies sometimes between a company profile on Crunchbase vs that company's profile on LinkedIn. It could be that Crunchbase is more accurate, but we just don't know.

LeadCandy

  • Some older staff aren't as receptive to new products and softwares.
  • Had to relearn and teach staff- teaching the staff the new program is time consuming.

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.

LeadCandy

They are similar in many ways, LeadBot uses conversations, not forms, so all of the lead qualifications you need to do can happen in real-time while someone is live on your website. LeadCandy instead helps you build and find people which then leads to conversations. I feel like LeadCandy is the complete package, where they help you from start to finish.

Return on Investment

Crunchbase

  • Crunchbase has been great and given us a lot of new companies to go after that have received funding and turned into great meetings. We do not pay a ton, so the ROI is great.
  • We have nothing but positive results using Crunchbase and rely on it heavily for prospecting.
  • It might add more value if we get a more expensive or advanced version.
Lindsey Schultz | TrustRadius Reviewer

LeadCandy

  • Effectiveness- the amount of email lists we received in the database!
  • We've received the database quickly and efficiently.
  • Neatness of website and app- the website was easy to manage.
