    D and B hoovers are best suited when you want to target companies based on their revenue, employee strength, location, and the kind of business the company is doing, this helps to make a cohort and find companies that are most likely to buy you products or services. However, D & B hoovers has some scope for improvement when it comes to getting details of individual decision-makers in those companies. It's not bad but can improve.

    Pros

    Dun & Bradstreet

    • allows you to search within broad industry categories or very detailed subcategories using a variety of methods (NAICS, SIC, D&B's internal coding system, keywords, etc.)
    • Has a variety of personnel that you can view and sort by level, name, or email availability.
    • Oftentimes emails for C-level personnel cannot be located on the company website or easily found elsewhere online.

    Cons

    Dun & Bradstreet

    • We should be able to "exclude" words from titles or company names
    • Able to access titles and email addresses more easily - not look at list first, select find matching contacts button, then go back to sort to add titles contain and email addresses, etc. This is a two-step process to get what I need.

    PitchBook

    • Can be glitchy when loading
    • Contact information can be inaccurate
    • Typically a day or two late to real time news and deals

      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.

      The overall support for PitchBook is about average. It is not excellent for two primary reasons. First, PitchBook can run slow from time to time, and I cannot copy and paste from the Chrome extension. I have found neither of those issues to be a function of the computer I am using. However, the PitchBook support team has proved helpful on several occasions.

      Alternatives Considered

      Dun & Bradstreet

      While there are several softwares that offer similar options, Hoovers does stand above the others as one of the most accurate softwares I have used. They seem to put a lot of work into keeping their information up to date and accurate. It definitely makes the life of a salesperson much easier.

      We actually use both. CBInsights we use more regularly for market capture, and PitchBook when we are actively seeking acquisitions.

      Scalability

      Dun & Bradstreet

      We're a small company with few users, so scalability has not been an issue.

      Return on Investment

      Dun & Bradstreet

      • 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.

      PitchBook

      • Slightly costly for small firms and thus, not positive ROI for them
      • More informed decisions for investments
      • The contact information bounces and not that reliable.
      • Great for diving deep into the funding and valuations news
