1. Looking up the technologies, analytics tools, and services used by your competitors and industry leaders. 2. Checking what has changed technology-wise on the website of your competitor, since you've noticed an improvement in their rankings or other website improvements. You can even set up alerts to receive emails every time a new change was made to the technology of the website you're interested in (usually your top competitors').

So, we used SimilarTech to look up which hosting providers our competitors and some other faster websites were using, to help us make an informed choice. When the company was considering a new live chat vendor, we also used SimilarTech to see what software some of the best websites on the web are using. Read full review Cons 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.

It's hard to think of a situation where I couldn't get the information I needed from SimilarTech. Read full review 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.

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.

SimilarTech is more user-friendly and seems to have a bigger index (i.e. covers more websites) of the websites.

You gain points for contact information when you add contact information. Since it is a free resource, there are no real negative impacts.

Moreover, it helps to monitor updates on the websites of the industry leaders, and to keep up with tech. Read full review ScreenShots
