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.

Sprinklr Modern Research offers us a good amount of coverage when we want to search for our chosen keywords or brand mentions across the wider social & news landscape. Certain platforms are of course harder to track than others, while others offer a huge amount of opportunity and Sprinklr does a fantastic job of visualising this. We find that image recognition is one area where there is room for improvement.
Read full review Pros 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.

Community Insights — We were able to watch out community and see what they were talking about. Crisis Monitoring — Being able to have dashboards that would monitor for crises across the internet. Read full review Cons 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. Read full review Include more sources in listening, every time we share listening data with a wider team we also make them aware of listening limitations as our data is very often challenged 'Uncategorized' age category in demographics for listening - it's always a majority which doesn't look great Overall the main feedback is that there is so much data available but it's very difficult to extract any insights from listening/benchmarking. Some inspiration/advice would be much appreciated. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
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.

We have had some good experiences, especially during renewal periods, but support has suddenly disappeared when the renewal is completed. Also, while we have multiple teams, those deemed more important or more likely to expand their purchase are given more attention. This decision comes from Sprinklr, not internally, so they are prioritizing support for teams which are actually not the teams paying the majority of the money for the service.

I was not part of the implementation as that stayed with Dev team.

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.

They are not included in all the things. It is integrated with different AI technologies. I like working with the Sprinklr team and building my own dashboards for new initiatives. The insights presented about the market are unmatched. See what people say about my brand or category like the hashtag research function for Instagram and Twitter. It would even suggest hashtags. Ease of use—from bullion coding/keyword building to analytics dashboarding

We're a small company with few users, so scalability has not been an issue.
Read full review Return on Investment 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. Read full review It has definitely improved our analytical insights by making the platform flexible enough to be able to deep dive and pull up a report on any metric and drive it. Real-time data is the boss of all. It helps us fix things with engagement team before the damage is done. User friendly UI has made it easy to operate and increase productivity.
