Digimind Intelligence

If you work in strategic marketing, business intelligence or competitive intelligence then Digimind can shave hours of time off your daily monitoring routine.You no longer have to manually trawl the web looking for news and no longer miss any important developments thanks to Digiminds ability to monitor sites up to 4 times a day.However it is important to understand that you can only get out of Digimind what you put in, so there is some initial effort involved in order to build up sources for the tool to monitor and setup your own folder structure to save information.

If you're with a big company that can afford to pay $500 - 1000 per month or more for data, then this platform may have a lot of value for you. That's in part because you could use it to produce actionable insights on a mass scale and you may not be worried about the cost of incorrect data. If your company is a smaller company working on a budget, this most likely is not the solution for you.

Pros

Digimind Intelligence

  • Monitoring the web - upon thousands and thousands of sources can be monitored at the same time as well as new sources discovered by utilising the tools digimind offers
  • Content management - store all of your data within the portal and access from any location with internet access or use the "push mail" feature to have a daily or weekly summary of news sent directly to your email inbox.
  • Managing the news via newsletters and extranet sites - within minutes you can automate a specific newsletter and tailor it for the relevant audience. Extranets can also be set up to view the news online as well as to store it to be viewed at a later time.
  • Source discovery - Digimind now offers ways in which to find new sources for specific topics and quickly add them to your search agents so you can continue to monitor them

D&B Hoovers

  • Hoover's has good information architecture in one sense that allowed you to keep track of where you have looked and also add anticipatory links for things you might like to research or know.
  • It was great for finding a more complete picture of the companies history.
  • It was helpful for piecing together contact information for people you may not have known worked there.

Cons

Digimind Intelligence

  • New users may find it difficult to initially setup their Digimind platform as some of the functions appear a little complex, however with a short training session this can be easily overcome.
  • Extranets are extemely useful for displaying current news as well as searching for old articles at a later date. There is one problem with the search function however which does not allow you to show results with the latest date so you often have to either know the exact headline or end up scrolling through a few pages before you find the correct one. A "show newest first" function would be a great improvement.

  • There are virtually no areas where this software can improve. This is elite b2b software that businesses who care about their prospecting/sales campaigns use.
  • Other than the software, the price itself can improve so start up businesses are more inclined to make the purchase.

After using Digimind for many years, it has become an integral part of our business intelligence process.We have developed our platform over this time with the help of the Digimind team and are very happy with the level of support we receive.

Hoover's just isn't compelling for the types of information they provide and the pricing model. But again, this is from the very limited perspective of a below entry level analyst who is just finishing their studies. It is probable that for some segments of industry, Hoover's has vast wealth of pertinent information. For example, when looking into agricultural industries for a consulting firm, I did not save any time with their service because information on factory locations and assets was scant. Using Google earth to view the square footage of the facilities to estimate assets was often more helpful.

They are terrific at giving instruction/webinars. I am able to call, directly, to an individual and talk to that person. I'm not talking to a robot. They give personal service which is really special.

Alternatives Considered

Digimind Intelligence

We initially trialled the Digimind platform just over 6 years ago, after looking at many alternative tools and platforms.Having used a tool called "website watcher" which had to be installed locally to alert on changes in web pages, moving to digimind could be compared to changing from a landline to using a modern smart phone.We originally looked at a wide range of products:-News monitors: Meltwater News, Factiva (great for sources, however lacking what a full CI platform can offer, sometimes work well in unison with Digimind itself, especially if they can offer RSS feeds which can be channelled directly in to Digimind)Clustering engines; - Kartoo Watch, Exalead (great for finding information and sources, but not much use for managing data itself)CI Platforms; QL2, Intelligenxia (now UReveal), Novintel (now global intelligence alliance), nStein (now a division of Open Text) and several more now defunct platforms.The closest to Digimind in terms of features looked to be QL2 as the others had gaps in one area or another.Digimind offered by far the most features and has the capability to allow multiple users access to a shared platform on a global basis.Support is also very good with new features and improvements being added on a regular basis.As the platform is "in the cloud" you can access it from anywhere with an internet connection via the website and your login.After 6 years of use we are still extremely happy with Digimind and have adopted the platform globally with users from different countries sharing information through it internally which likely would not have happend without the platform.Alternative products are now starting to appear but they still have a long way to go in order to offer the level of functionality and ongoing development which Digimind can offer.

D&B stacks up but not very high. ZoomInfo is in the lead for newer-looking technology and data quality. Sales Navigator is a powerhouse in the space and probably has the whole package that I'd want during prospecting except for the business code. Crunchbase has newer information and industry trends that are hard to beat. Hopefully D&B can modernize to stack up and make a more appealing UI/UX.

  • Honestly cannot say we really drove any new sales using D&B Hoovers to prospect new companies and leads. We obtained higher data quality with other tools like ZoomInfo and Skrapp.
  • A year long contract that isn't honored on their side due to lack of customer service and poor data quality definitely does not equal ROI.
  • Spent significant time sanitizing and cleansing inaccurate data provided by their service. Since time is money in business, that was a loss in that aspect.
