D&B Hoovers

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.

eGrabber eMail-Prospector

The Tool is best suited for assessing quality of data in terms of the likelihood that you will be able to get in touch with the person. The Tool regularly updates to ensure that there are no issues when working with Linkedin. The customer service team is always available to offer support and regularly provide guidance with updates. The Tool pulls all forms of contact information ranging from contacts' emails to phone number and everything in between. The Tool is highly intuitive and thus, easy to use.

Pros

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.

eGrabber eMail-Prospector

  • The "gatekeeper" is the toughest obstacle you will face while trying to reach a possible prospect. The eMail-Prospector gives you the opportunity to bypass that obstacle. All you need is the contact name and company.
  • Fast and Efficient. In less than a minute, you can obtain the contact information you need. It's amazing how efficient the program is by producing correct information that is verifiable.
  • Ease of Use. The program is so easy yet very sophisticated. All you need is a name and the company information - and you're already halfway there to getting viable contact information.
  • Value. Within the first few weeks of using eMail-Prospector - it had basically paid for itself. By having the information for the correct contact person - my percentage of closing possible sales prospects increased by 50%.

Cons

D&B Hoovers

  • 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.

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

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.

I haven't used a similar product, nothing is even close to the quality of it. I have used some cheaper chrome extensions that have a 1/8 of the capability so there is not a comparison that I can make, which comes close to it

Return on Investment

D&B Hoovers

  • 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.

  • Open line of contact with appropriate contact person
  • Allows me to convert sales prospects from leads to closed sales much faster
  • Increased percentage of closed sales
