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.

I feel like our use case scenario is excellent for any company that would like to see more accountability from their sales or service teams. Geopointe's ability to force a Geocheckin when visiting specific Salesforce data is exactly what most companies need. The ROI for combining Salesforce and Geopointe is exponential for any business looking to grow and maintain a good customer relationship.

  • Data.com is a great way to find out accurate revenue and employee numbers for companies across various industries.
  • Data.com's filtering capabilities allow our team to quickly find the ideal prospects to reach out to.
  • Data.com, being owned by Salesforce, allows for a seamless integration into our CRM. This saves us an incredible amount of time and ensures data accuracy.

  • I like the way that we can utilize the registration and look at an area not exclusively to guarantee that our reps are at an office and working yet if something somehow managed to happen we would have a thought of where they are found.
  • It is an incredible apparatus and resource for our organization for using time effectively.
  • My number one moment was a couple of years prior when one of the top-performing salesmen considered it the best deals device he had found in his 20 years of selling.

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.

  • I've found using shapes based on rather weighty data can take some times. Looking for ways to help you optimise in terms of speed and displaying data would be appreciated.
  • A bit more clarity on what you can and cannot do with a license. There are some functions that you get a scattering of capabilities on (assignments) which you can find that you'll need to pay more for to really unlock.

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.

By utilizing this instrument I am effectively handling my information as it upholds the CVS records and it is simple for me to import such documents as a result of the Geopointe Maps.

  • 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.

  • Geopointe has provided an exponential ROI in terms of customer retention, and conversion of quotes to orders. This is a difficult metric to calculate but it is evident.
  • Geopointe has provided a substantial positive impact in terms of employee turnover in our outside sales role. Prior to using Salesforce and Geopointe our sales team in many cases was providing false data or copied data from the past. Geopointe's geo-checkin feature eliminates that. We have customized our Outside Sales Agreement to adapt the obligation of the outside sales person, to account for Salesforce and Geopointe and our new expectations.
