Data.com

Data.com is a good prospecting and data information tool for any agency or company doing outbound prospecting. Data.com requires you to also have Salesforce CRM, so this tool is really only suited for those companies that can afford Salesforce. Because of this, Data.com seems like a better fit for companies with at least 30 or more employees (total in the company) and at least 5 Salesforce users. Data.com is not a good fit for small businesses.

EverString

Business development departments for a sales manager to create a sales pipeline. Really helpful for startup tech companies. EverString is well suited for companies looking to scale that don't have the capital to pay for expensive resources. If your company uses Salesforce, I would recommend enabling EverString because the import function works very well. Great for SDRs/BDRs!

Pros

Data.com

  • Data.com is appealing because it's affordable. You might need to purchase a few contacts to get rolling, but once you're able to add some yourself and gain additional points, it can very rewarding to "earn" additional contacts by submitting some of your own.
  • There is a wide range of search terms available to narrow down your list by name, region, company name, and others.
  • Easy "add contacts" function, and a template to add a large number of them at once.

EverString

  • Client support: Andreas, our account lead, is always available, positive, eager to help and engaged around our business, and moves action areas to others on his team.
  • Competitive pricing.
  • Intuitive User Interface.
  • Speed-to-Implementation: we were up and running within a week of executing the agreement.
Jennifer Yugo, PhD, SPHR | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Data.com

  • If it provided more details about the company it would be great- information such as employee size or software used would be great.
  • The ability to add a contact with just a number would be great- sometimes you don't have an address.
  • It would be helpful to be notified when a contact you have "purchased" has been changed/updated.
Elizabeth Rodriguez | TrustRadius Reviewer

EverString

  • EverString could/should expand to international markets, or at least the top 20-25 countries by GDP. That would significantly increase the value for global companies.
  • One of the challenges with EverString is that, while the data set is impressive, it's fairly static. I think EverString could/should work to get my dynamic purchase intent and/or research data into the product and enable alerts whenever companies move in/out or up/down in fit score.
  • We use EverString in combination with Discover.Org as the 'whole solution', as we need both the target accounts and the contacts in those accounts to enable our go-to-market. Would be great if that combo was all part of the same solution.

Would love to keep everstring as part of our tech stack in the future. if we ever have to move from everstring it will be due to budget not the solution itself.

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.

Everstring is really easy to use and navigate. It is also an intuitive system, so anything that initially obvious you can work it out pretty quickly. -Nice home page -Easy to use filters to build lists of companies-Simple to search based on keywords- Huge number of companies searched and made available to our SDRs quickly. Not a 10 because:- Not the biggest fan of how they display results (on the initial search return page, it can take a while to go through. Inside each company, retrieved is a nice interface again).- Doesn't seem to always be accurate for EMEA companies (90%)

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.

Have a plan on how you're going to evaluate. We had a two-month trial period, but a six-month average lead cycle time, making it impossible to evaluate on a purely new-business ROI basis within the trial. We applied the model to our prior data, which demonstrated how much time and effort was devoted to accounts that weren't going to close
Steve Susina | TrustRadius Reviewer

Alternatives Considered

Data.com

My client chose Data.com based on the experience during the evaluation period and the cost comparison. Data.com was the better-suited solution in this scenario. The size of the InsideView database was significantly smaller than Data.com and had limitations on downloads that Data.com did not. InsideView also provided little detail in profiles that were a dealbreaker for my client.

EverString

We selected EverString because of the ability to actually deliver companies and contacts in our industry. We had tested a number of other products and not been able to find any kind of quantity of useful data. EverString delivers accurate data for our industry.

Return on Investment

Data.com

  • It does an excellent job of creating a more complete picture of an account and key contacts.
  • Helps clarify the key contacts. Sometimes all you get is a mumbled name on a call that might be very important. Data.com allows for a quick search and identification of the contact that would have been lost otherwise.
  • Even helped us begin sending marketing assets to customers of our partners that share a need overlap.
Jerry van Dalen Jr. | TrustRadius Reviewer

EverString

  • Opportunities created - we saw a notable uptick in opportunities created from LDRs.
  • Deals Closed - we also saw great improvement in deals closed.
  • Same number of leads sourced - the increases in opportunities created and deals closed were all on almost exactly the same number of MSLs compared to when we didn't use predictive. The gain in efficiency in lead management has been significant.
