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.

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.

  • 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.

  • 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
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.

  • 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.

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.

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.

  • 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.
