Considered Both Products
Data.com (discontinued)
Chose Data.com (discontinued)
When we first purchased Datanyze, they had an email address portion of the site. The platform changed about halfway through our contract and no longer included access to email information. I believe that functionality is back as a feature of Datanyze. However, it always seemed …
Chose Data.com (discontinued)
What I have found is that no single platform provides all the data we need, even Data.com. There are often inconsistencies between the information found on Data.com versus other platforms so we are using Data.com in parallel with these other platforms. The interface and the …
Chose Data.com (discontinued)
Data.com is great for filtering and finding specific contact and company information. Unfortunately much of that information is old and outdated. We recently did not renew our subscription with Data.com because we felt it could use improvement. We now use Winmo which provides …
Datanyze
Chose Datanyze
Data.com has better lead info but Datanyze allows you to look into the technologies used by a company which provides a great deal of benefit when prospecting so that you know what questions to ask when trying to start or influence a conversation.
Chose Datanyze
We selected Datanyze at the time because it was the most comprehensive in terms of the types of accounts they had profiled in their database as compared to ZoomInfo and DiscoverOrg. Datanyze has really strong search/list building functionality. At this point within our team, …
Chose Datanyze
The UI of Datanyze is better than some of the alternatives. They also maintain information on certain technologies that other vendors do not. I also like the company notification (i.e. when a company changes a technology). As far as other features, I have seen that they are …
Chose Datanyze
Datanyze was originally offering contact information. This was a main reason for choosing the service. Something happened and they no longer offered emails for company contacts. Had we known the contact feature wasn't going to be a part of the service in the future, we wouldn't …

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.

Datanyze

  • Datanyze has a Salesforce integration that allows for easy uploads.
  • The email validation tool is very accurate.

Cons
Discontinued Products
  • 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.

Datanyze
  • Datanyze used to give really good data on specific person level. You could then look up prospects using the Chrome extension inside of LinkedIn. This made prospecting extremely easy and very efficient. Unfortunately, this no longer exists and it is much harder to do without their data.
  • I have found that sometimes the data inside of datanyze is not always current. When reaching out to companies they will mention that they were just testing a tool, not fully using it.
  • There are really no other places to push the data from Datanyze except for Salesforce. This makes it tough when using other tools or CRMs.

Usability

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.

Adobe Workfront 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.

Datanyze
I've used products like Builtwith and Wappalyzer and neither compare to the level and organization of data within Datanyze. It's much more robust and easy to access. However, it isn't perfect and sometimes needs to be updated, or removed and re-installed simply for it to function

Return on Investment
Discontinued Products
  • The positive impact is gaining more direct contact information for hiring managers.
  • Another positive factor is that it is completely free. You gain points for contact information when you add contact information.
  • Since it is a free resource, there are no real negative impacts.

  • I'm able to make an extra $200 a month because of Datanyze.
  • In all honesty for what I do, you do not need to spend $10 a month on Datanyze. You can use the free version and it works just as well.
