The solution allowed for relevant data in terms of sales and business development. Prospecting was made easy with it because of the presence of relevant data and also scoops on how we can use that data to our advantage. In Brief, the best usage of data was made possible by it.
  • Lead Generation help.
  • Relevant data provided about lead.
  • Information on how that data can be used for business development.
  • The scope to use data could be highlighted a bit better.
  • Data validation could be better.
  • Emails and phone number verification options could be provided.
If you are looking to get a scoop into which leads are relevant to the industries you are prospecting to then it's a great tool but if you are looking to do some targeted prospecting that ought to be very accurate and result-centric then this may not be the proper tool for you.
The data has not always been very accurate and seemed like there is a mix of outdated data that comes up in the searches as well, for example, there are some invalidated emails still lingering around and also some invalid phone numbers. It is a bit difficult to separate these using algorithms but from a customer's point of view, these are inconveniences.

In my organization, we've been using Zoominfo for years. Now that EverString is part of Zoominfo, it helps Zoominfo improve in different aspects. EverString's advanced analytics resulted in precise and accurate data that are very much needed to sort out files and contacts. EverString's business-to-business data solutions suffice my organization's needs for accurate and distinct results, especially since contacts and leads are vital in our field. When it comes to gathering contacts and summarizing the collected data, EverString's advanced graphs, tables, charts, and likes are the chef's kiss. Which resulted in easy access to results and studying the graphs hassle-free while collaborating with teammates.
  • Advanced Numerical Data Charts.
  • Hassle-free collaboration tool.
  • Data easily linked to other derivative.
  • Should have more easier access for contacts.
EverString is very much suited in every field and I don't think it will be less appropriate also. Based on my personal usage of this tool, even in small companies, it will be a big help just by its business-to-business data solutions and advanced numerical visual representations. Another good thing about this software is its price which is very suitable for a small or big company. You would never go wrong with everything while using EverString.
In my field, leads are important and what we are living. EverString helps us to discover companies and organizations with the same providence as the companies we have dealt with before. Thus, we could gather more leads in an easy way. Another thing is it boost our market analysis and gives off accurate numerical and visual charts that I will never get tired of saying over and over again. Lastly, EverString makes collaborating and working with teammates entertaining. Because of its graphics' ease of access leads us to comprehend charts and tables easily.

[EverString, now part of ZoomInfo] is being used by my department for prospecting efforts. It helps to quickly identify potential prospects and also key facts on the company such as revenue size, key contacts, contact information. This helps to cut down on a significant amount of time that was previously used to research and dig to find this information and allows us to be much more efficient with our time.
  • Number of companies
  • Contact information
  • Advanced search feature
  • Company revenue estimates being inaccurate
  • Companies headquartered elsewhere showing up due to having a location in my area
[EverString, now part of ZoomInfo] is perfect for the middle market banking business to find and uncover new prospects to reach out to. It helps speed up the process of getting to the point of making that first call. I think it is well suited for any business that needs to find potential business prospects.
It has made us much more efficient in generating prospects to call on and reduced the amount of time spent researching and looking up who to call and how to get in touch by providing everything we need in one quick search.

Everstring has supported our ABM strategy by providing deeper insights into our ideal customer personas. It supports our targeting and research process by providing demographic, firmographic and technographic information that we can rely on when developing new audiences. Additionally, the intent score capabilities of Everstring have been a welcome addition, supporting both sales and marketing, by providing actionable data to help identify where organizations might be along their buying journey.

  • Identify new accounts showing intent in our software vertical
  • Monitor intent across target accounts to know when best to engage
  • Monitor current customers around renewal time to understand where they might be looking to expand or fill gaps.

Additional information regarding our use case can be found here: https://www.slideshare.net/TimothyHarris16/everstring-dialsource-smart-selling-tools-webinar
  • ABM Targeting and Ideal Customer Persona development.
  • Identifying buyer intent.
  • Qualifying companies through the combination of demographic, firmographic and technographic data.
  • Accurate account and contact data.
  • Great Salesforce connection
  • Expanding their database of business contacts.
  • Data accuracy in smaller companies and expanded data across enterprise organizations.
Data is a critical component of any modern b2b sales/marketing strategy. It needs to be accurate and easily accessible. Everstring does a great job with both of these and also adds to the mix a new form of data, based around intent.
  • If you are working to develop your targeting and ABM strategy this is a great tool to help better understand your target markets and ICP.
  • Looking to understand the search terms and overall interests of companies
  • Identify key contacts at target accounts.
  • Enrich Salesforce with accurate contact and account data.
This platform is simple to use and easy to onboard reps. I love the integration with Salesforce. All of our reps are able to see information directly on the lead, contact, and account objects. The overall use and training on Everstring was simple and easy to use/setup. This is a very user-friendly platform. Everstring is also very helpful in coaching your strategy and supporting your objectives.
Overall the information has been very helpful to both marketing and sales within our organization. We do find gaps and inaccuracies within contact information such as phone numbers but the digital contact information such as email and LinkedIn have been great to benefit our prospecting functions.
+ Not the best phone data.
+ Really good digital information.

EverString is used by the sales department, mostly by BDs to my knowledge. It is mainly used to help find prospects' email and phone numbers, often having direct lines that are harder to find online. It is also used to import these contacts into Salesforce, reducing the manual entry otherwise required.
  • Simple interface - easy to understand
  • Integrations with LinkedIn and Salesforce
  • Annoying to click on the checkbox to select multiple contacts to import/delete - would be nice to be able to click and drag or holding down ctrl to select multiple contacts faster.
  • Better error return messages - not just indicating that there is already an existing account but showing the actual account instead.
EverString is useful as a tool for sales teams (who use Salesforce and LinkedIn) to find better contact info on prospects, and definitely valuable over having to manually search for each individual's phone and email. However I'm not sure how it compares to some of the other competitors that solve a similar problem.
Minimal training was needed. Team had an hour session.
This is the main benefit we get from EverString. Sending the contact info to Salesforce and then being able to open up the Salesforce page using the direct link afterwards. Emails are found most of the time and Everstring's email verification process is fairly reliable. Phone numbers are slightly less reliable, but still seem to work over half of the time.

We are currently using EverString to enrich accounts with our Salesforce integration. Our researchers use it to get segment, company, social media, contact, and industry information. It addresses our need to be able to determine whether or not a company would benefit from our software or not, as we look to help particular company segments. Additionally, our sales reps use it to be relevant and up-to-date when speaking with prospects.
  • It finds company and segment information well. This is a strength of EverString that is more consistent and up to date than the Clearbit extension we also use.
  • It finds extra contact information, such as phone numbers, that other extensions sometimes miss.
  • It saves us time when it comes to gathering "extra information," e.g. pulls a summary of what the company does, as well as its LinkedIn profile for a quick reference.
  • It sometimes pulls out of date information for the company -- possibly more due to the company itself not updating its information.
  • Phone numbers are sometimes inaccurate.
  • The extension sometimes crashes inside Salesforce.
Well suited:
  • It's really good for our researchers when it comes to identifying companies that would possibly be a good fit for Workable.
  • It gives accurate information about the company for them to write mini reports for the SDRs to use.
  • SDRs prospecting time is massively reduced by having easily accessible information and social profile links.
Not so well suited:
  • More of a feeling -- if a company is new (less than 1-2 years) the information may not be up to date, especially if the company is growing quickly.
Yes-- the research team is not only able to find companies that are a fit for us, but they can also enrich accounts that we had previously identified. I was not directly involved in the training of the researchers, who use it the most, but for the SDRs, it is very simple to get them up to speed and make the most of it. Any time we had a problem it was easily fixed by searching online.
I love the direct LinkedIn profile link. I used to use it every time I got a new account to quickly and efficiently gather information on the company and contact (recently in the team lead role, so it's not so active now).
I find the information to be up to date 90% of the time. The only times Everstring fails is where a contact has moved company recently, but I don't think that's something that is easily tracked! It also gives a nice snapshot of who the person is and what their role in the company is.

Update: Quality of data from Everstring is more consistently available for companies based in the US.

We use EverString to find prospective companies that are currently looking up industry keywords. Although it does not give us a specific person from the company, giving us information about which company is plenty because we merely need a general direction. EverString optimizes my prospecting workflow and finds the appropriate company instead of wasting additional time searching for potential leads. My last EverString filtered search revealed over 350+ leads--which is great!
  • List companies that search for specific keywords for a specific time parameter.
  • Integrate with Salesforce.
  • Helpful for business development.
  • Tons of leads!
  • Does not tell you the specific person looking up the information.
  • Sometimes doesn't classify the company's Revenue correctly.
Business development departments for a sales manager to create a sales pipeline. Really helpful for startup tech companies. EverString is well suited for companies looking to scale that don't have the capital to pay for expensive resources. If your company uses Salesforce, I would recommend enabling EverString because the import function works very well. Great for SDRs/BDRs!
The training is easy and EverString does not require a long learning curve. The software is very user-friendly and provides quality leads. We do not have a marketing department yet, so I would suggest using EverString until your marketing department scales. It's difficult for us to find account intelligence on our own without using EverString.
I have not been able to see the exact LinkedIn profile, but after using the data enriching filters I look up the potential companies on Sales Navigator. I feel that the accounts are accurate and have up-to-date company contact information. We have benefited from this information because it saves us time from researching accounts and allows us to send more emails than we were able to before.

We use EverString in the Marketing department to develop targeted lists for the organization that are in-market for our type of solutions. We then use those lists to target marketing and SDR campaigns.
  • Targeted List Building: We've been able to build targeted lists based on intent data.
  • Finding intent data on new and existing accounts.
  • We were able to do some level of data enrichment of our current database.
  • EverString is not always the most intuitive on building new lists based on past list attributes.
  • It needs more intent data keywords.
  • Expensive.
The solution is well suited for an organization that is building a strong ABM marketing and sales culture. It's maybe not the best for organizations that don't have sales and marketing fully aligned, or are just getting started in ABM.
There was not significant training needed for the users. However, at times the main user had to ask how to do things like republishing lists or updating lists.
The contact data is mostly correct. There are some outliers of course.

Our SDR team uses EverString to find target accounts that are surging for terms that we believe to mean they are actively looking for analytics software. They also use the platform to gather contact information on potential prospects.
  • Identify surging topics at relevant companies. This is this whole reason we purchased EverString.
  • Admin functions are very easy to navigate and set up.
  • The implementation process was very easy and the people we worked with along the way were helpful and easy to get along with.
  • Need a more robust contact list. We find our accounts in EverString but mostly use SFDC and LinkedIn to find prospects to reach out to.
  • As an admin, since you see everyone's lists they build, you should be able to clean that up and organize into folders or something.
EverString is well-suited from a sales perspective to gather a list of target accounts to reach out too. However, it is not well suited to gather all of the contacts to reach out to.
Very easy-to-use. Everyone went through a single thirty-minute training session and there have been no issues since.
When we first signed up for EverString this was less helpful. The platform has recently improved in this aspect.

We use EverString for revenue banding and industry identification for prospects. Our primary users are Sales and Marketing. It allows us to correctly assign leads and is a big help for target prioritization.
  • Providing revenue information. Data quality is great.
  • Providing industry information. Accurate information.
  • Providing company information, great help for prospecting.
  • User interface on analytics could be better.
  • Saved lists (i.e. reports) could be better organized.
  • A Salesforce connector would be welcomed.
EverString is great when you're trying to boil down the ocean of prospective customers and leads.
Yes. Both our Sales and Marketing teams are able to find account intelligence in EverString on their own. The user interface is very intuitive. It took my organization just a couple hours to get all of our team members in both Sales Operations as well as Marketing Operations proficient with EverString.
EverString provides my organizations marketers and sales reps with accurate, up-to-date contact information which we use daily. The quality of the EverString contact data is very good. We have not seen any quality issues with EverString contact data. This has saved a great deal of time for our sales and marketing teams.

We use Everstring to build targeted outreach lists for our sales and marketing efforts. Previously, if we needed to build account lists, we would have to use a random assortment of lists and databases to cobble together imprecise lists of accounts; Everstring makes it much easier for us to target accounts that meet very specific firmographic and technographic parameters we set.
  • EverString allows us to build account lists based off in-depth firmographic or technographic data. It's far more accurate than trying to build these lists any other way.
  • EverString is fast. Where it might've previously taken us weeks to build lists of this quality, we now can build them in a matter of minutes (and have them ready to be published in a couple of hours).
  • EverString's "advanced insights" filters are cool in theory—being able to target by sophistication or B2B vs. B2C is really useful—but the lists don't change much with those filters. They don't seem to be quite useful yet.
  • I've found that the EverString lists built off of our seed lists are often filled with accounts that don't fit our target profile. For the time being, we're finding it more effective to manually set criteria rather than use the list EverString builds.
I've recommended EverString to many folks I know that are trying to build good target lists for their sales and marketing efforts. If your company has allocated a significant budget to do targeted marketing, EverString is extremely useful. If you're not committed to spending money to reach the accounts you've built in EverString, it's decidedly less effective.
We currently have several members of our marketing team accessing EverString. Sales currently works the lists that Marketing generates, but they themselves are not EverString users. Our marketing team enjoys the flexibility of creating new accounts lists on the fly, as well as the ability EverString gives us to mix and match criteria for building new lists. I've found EverString's documentation is somewhat sparse, so it's good to have a team member that's deeply familiar with EverString's offering. After spending about 15 minutes in the app, it's pretty easy to know how to navigate.
We've not yet done much in the way of outreach to specific contacts through our EverString efforts—mostly just accounts that we should target. Consequently, I can't speak much to the quality of EverString's contact information.

Helps to get accurate reporting on company demographics, description, and phone number. It's being used by the sales team and is built into Salesforce. I recently started working in the role at this company and didn't realize the importance of the tool until recently. I get phone numbers to call leads and can be more informed in selling by finding content I can then come at from a relatable place.
  • Links to relevant social media portals
  • Similar leads list
  • Salesforce integrated
  • Incomplete company profiles
  • Many "keywords" which I don't use. The list is long and unhelpful for my role.
  • Lack of customization. I would like to be able to remove, add, and re-order info.
Great for getting some info to help prepare for first and second cadences. Less advanced info for really getting into the company's mission. It would be helpful to have more on recent news stories, decisions the company has made, and what the culture is like. Having to go to other places to get a robust look/company profile.
Honestly, we didn't have any training around using the tool. Yes, it's easy to find the info that it provides but would be great if there was another view or easier way to see the information rather than scrolling down in our CRM and going to the little box with tabs.
I honestly haven't used the contact page as much as relying on data already in our lead gen from marketing. I get a sense from my manager that these numbers are good, though I would prefer only direct lines (who wouldn't) as I can usually find at least a gen CS number on their website.

To give context, Everstring is being used by our Marketing department who manage our BDR teams on a regular basis. Our sales and BDR team don't really use Everstring beyond the data that it provides them. However operationally speaking our marketing department uses Everstring to contribute to any contact lists we need built for the BDR team. With that in mind, we utilize the intent data that contributes our list builds as well.

With context established, I will say that Everstring is just an okay solution, Okay for me is a 5/10. We have found that when we pull a few thousand contacts for our BDRs to call and email we have found that only around 2/5 of the emails are guaranteed verified. With that said their are a large chunk of those emails, about 2/5s, being sent to servers that do not provide the necessary signals to determine if it is or isn't an active email account so those are considered unverifiable. The last chunk of emails are inactive. The quality of their data is a big con for us. However, what makes them okay is they let us quickly determine if we already have accounts within our Salesforce instance. We can also take a pre-built list from, for example, ZoomInfo and use Everstring to determine if we have accounts for those as well. Due to the data issues we primarily use other data providers to make our lists but their intent data and mass CRM account checking are very helpful.
  • Intent Data as an added service.
  • Mass CRM account checking to prevent duplicate accounts, contacts, or leads.
  • UI is a nice change of pace.
  • Data quality on emails.
  • Newsfeed tab on the account is just a glorified google search.
  • Odd taxonomy decisions in terms of account data naming conventions.
If you are a call center for B2B services, then you would be able to leverage their lack of a credits system to get yourself a lot of contacts/accounts quickly and if you purchased their intent data service you could use that to see if your product was specifically searched. In addition, you would probably need to be calling about the very specific product you were selling or target account you were focused on to use this database to any great effect.
Everstring was very simple for us to use. It is a simpler version of other databases. The UI was intuitive and the filters were pretty straight forward. It took me personally about half a data of fiddling to be very comfortable with it. Again, I was apart of our Marketing who builds lists for our sales teams.
As stated before, data quality is a huge concern for us in terms of emails because our business thrives off of email selling as a good starting point for our BDRs. Since there is only a 30-40% success rate with emails of contacts with Everstring we do not use them for their contacts anymore. Just for their intent data service.

We are using it to pull lists of email addresses in a wide variety of verticals to then use in large email campaigns.
  • Seems to be accurate data
  • Easy to use
  • Needs more contacts
Well suited to pull mass lists to do outreach to prospects.
At this point it is just me using it. Training was good by Everstring.
The deliverable email addresses and related data has seemed to be accurate which helps us communicate to the right people. The lists are smaller than other providers though.

We are using EverString to tap into accounts with intent. The teams that are using this tool are marketing, sales operations, and sales leaders. We recently connected EverString to our salesforce, but I was not part of that project. I believe intent data populates on accounts, as it is made in EverString.
  • Surfaces intent for accounts that are searching for our tool.
  • When data lives on the actual account in Salesforce it becomes x10 more useful.
  • It's easy to pull/create a report in the actual tool online.
  • Requires training and a lot of customization when it comes to pulling reports.
  • It's difficult to understand how to best distribute the data and alert reps of intent on their target accounts.
  • There is limited training and use cases for this tool across our organization.
EverString's main purpose is to surface intent. I wish the intent data was more descriptive and had more details of the type of searches/information the accounts are looking for. Something my organization needs help with is understanding how to surface this data to our sales reps, rather than having it passively live on the accounts.
We currently have a very small team (maybe 3 people) using the tool. We did not have much training across the board; it was more like reteaching what the owner of the tool had learned and how they use it. I do not believe we are using the tool to its fullest potential.
The contact info is always hit or miss. Sometimes it is accurate, other times it is not. I would have to speak more to the sales reps to get more details.

It is currently being used in the Sales Department to bring in company information and track the keywords being searched within employees of the company we are prospecting.
  • Recognizes finance buzz words that are being searched.
  • The scoring system for how often they have searched a term.
  • Providing company info.
  • Not accurate information, I would cross-reference the information with Hoovers or Crunchbase (Ex. Location of HQ).
  • More detail on the breakdown of the score. Why is it ranked so high? Ex. Relevant titles searching vs. Volume searches.
  • More relevant info, like who the parent company, recently funded, etc.
Everstring would be suited really well in sales if we could trust the info. Probably why the team doesn’t leverage it as much as we should.
Not really, there are always questions being asked about it. But I think that’s due to the lack of training. It was more so taught by other sales reps and they show specific features that they use for their prospecting. But it would be nice to get trained by someone from Everstring to share how other sales organizations are leveraging this software.
I really don’t use this feature as we have another tool called Seamless that gives me direct lines and more accurate information. I find that Everstring only provides emails and not so much phone numbers that are a huge help in Sales and prospecting.

EverString has helped with efforts in finding net-new leads, similar to our top partners. EverString has helped find additional company contacts through the enrichment feature.
  • We've seen the most success with the "Finding Similar Companies" feature.
  • Reps at EverString are very responsive and helpful. Great support.
  • EverString has helped find new company contacts to add to our CRM.
  • It would be nice if the enrichment feature could be used as a contact level.
  • I think the user interface could be simplified, as there is more than one way to perform an action/build a list.
I think EverString's best, most useful feature is finding similar companies. The enrichment feature has helped us find new contacts from existing companies, but does provide missing data at a contact level, which would be nice to be able to do. The area in which we've seen the least success is the intent feature, being that the audiences have been too small for us to really utilize.
Being a user, I would say the platform is very accessible in finding account intelligence. I would say that working in the platform, I've had to utilize the support in many instances to be clear on the functionality of each feature. I've also had many questions around the filters and settings, as those can be slightly confusing to navigate.
We are still in the early stages with EverString-- we don't yet have this feedback from our sales team.

Sales: we use it mainly for the Salesforce integration for contact/lead research.
  • Listing company info & relevant contacts.
  • More specific search within Salesforce (by keyword & title).
Finding large amounts of contacts for mid to large companies.
Yes, less than 30 minutes.
Lots of contacts for larger firms which is great. Saves me a lot of time instead of having to research on LinkedIn for a specific contact.

We use it primarily for sales intelligence, primarily to confirm company size in regard to revenue & location.
  • Support. The customer success manager is great. He regularly reaches out to let us know about upcoming product updates or other events that may have an impact on the way we use the solution. He is also good at addressing questions on a one-off basis, which is much appreciated.
  • Identifying revenue. I've worked with Hoovers, OneSource, and InsideView in the past. All tools just pull data from D&B for revenue. Everstring does seem to take that a step further by analyzing a variety of sources. There will always be issues with the data, especially in regards to private companies, but Everstring does do a better job than other SI tools I have experience using
  • Salesforce Integration. It's good for identifying prospect accounts and contacts because all the fields that Everstring populates are immediately available when I create a report with Salesforce.
  • Updating Account Info with Feedback. Sales reps are constantly looking at other sources to determine whether or not an account assignment is valid. Everstring would benefit from that information as well. There would need to be a way to easily submit that information to Everstring for review.
  • LinkedIn integration. When you are creating territories or resolving a dispute regarding account assignment based upon public information, there are so many resources that an individual can look at. I've worked at companies in the past that base territory assignments on employee count. To this day, I have not seen a more reliable source than LinkedIn for identifying that information.
  • Explaining Intent scores. I think the Intent scores are great, but I don't necessarily understand how they are identified. If I did, I could likely use the information in a more effective manner.
Well suited- Identifying revenue. Prioritizing sales strategy based on public information. Less appropriate- identifying employee count, showing current events related to the company. The interface is kind of busy and requires a lot of clicks to get the information I often need.
Not much training.
More accurate than other SI tools.

EverString is being used across the marketing and sales team at my company. It helps us with our ABM strategy and picking the right accounts for us to advertise to. It also helps the sales team find the right companies who are showing intent for our software.
  • You're easily able to find companies that aren't in your CRM and are in your ICP.
  • It allows sales reps to find similar companies to our best customers.
  • EverString's implementation process was not well organized and was confusing for my team. My team had to do a lot of work to get this up and running, and we feel like the customer success manager could have been more attentive.
If your main issue is finding the right accounts to reach out to and you know your ICP or how you want to target these people, EverString is great. If you need help finding contacts at the companies, I found that the data is a little less accurate.
Only the managers at my company have access to EverString and pass these lists over to sales, so we did not have to train the sales team. Overall it's pretty easy to find accounts in EverString as long as you know what criteria you want to filter by.
It's great that the contact data is all there for the sales/marketing team when they are finding accounts but the info is not always accurate. Additionally, they don't always find the right title or contact we are looking for.

It's used by the marketing department. It helps us to attain some valuable information on the intent of prospects and their fitness to our customer profile. Instead of chasing each prospect in our target market, it helps us to focus on those who are surging.
  • Finding prospects that are looking for products like ours.
  • Creating customer profiles.
  • The categorization of companies.
  • More options within industries.
It's a great tool if you do account-based marketing and you need to narrow down your focus on the companies that are actually in search of a product or service like yours.
It's a fairly intuitive software. A few training videos on the side would be very helpful.
The quality of the contacts is good. Increasing the number of available contacts would be great.

EverString is currently only used by Marketing to enrich leads and take advantage of the intent marketing. We get a lot of new contacts from EverString, but have issues appending data to existing contacts. As for the intent, we use this to further target our CRM list marketing, but have noticed that in order to find companies surging on our chosen topics, the list size must be quite large.
  • Finding new contacts for our companies.
  • Finding new companies.
  • Being able to "enrich" data -- meaning finding data for contacts that we upload into the system.
  • We have more options for intent topics.
  • The platform was really hard to understand in the beginning. More training would be helpful.
  • UI could be improved. For example -- because I was not an admin, I was unable to complete the in-platform training.
If you want to find new leads, this platform is good. If you are trying to enrich existing leads, this platform doesn't work very well, and all it does is pull in new leads.
Our sales team does not use EverString right now. Only Marketing does, and it took weeks to get comfortable with the platform.
The contacts are accurate for the most part. We have had some issues with dirty data, but I believe that is because our lists are not always clean to begin with.

It is used to help in the search process of finding new prospects. It is being used by the sales department, typically by the business development team, but also by the Account Executives. It helps us find better contacts in our database. With hundreds of thousands of contacts, we needed EverString to find the needle in the haystack.
  • Finds the revenue of the company.
  • Finds the address of headquarters.
  • Gives us an estimate on how likely it is that the company would need a financial software.
  • Sometimes the revenue doesn't match up properly.
  • There could be differences in the mailing and billing addresses.
  • ESrevenue is very general (ex. 500M-1B).
EverString is great for filtering through a huge database of prospects. The ES intent helps the best when you put it in a vertical of a report, and filter the report to the top-down ES intent. Scenarios where it doesn't work are when you don't have it aligned with other software. For example, if you have the intent, but there are no contacts in the account, EverString tells you about the company, but not who is in the company.
Yes, we are able to find account intelligence on EverString. There isn't much training needed to use the software due to it being automatic and not interactive. We did not do training on the software at all. It is a part of our salesforce, so we train people on how to read the data and how it can help.
EverString is not the most accurate. We pretty much use it as a baseline. I didn't know that there were EverString contacts.

It is being used to look up prospective accounts in the system. We look up the revenue for these prospective accounts in order to see whether or not the prospect falls into the allowed category of revenue we, as sales reps, are supposed to target. The problem it does address is seeing what kind of class of company we are going to target.
  • Raw revenue
  • ES score
  • Accuracy
  • User-friendly interface
  • Could be faster
It is well suited in a hunters role but needs to be more accurate to prevent time wasted hitting on accounts that are smaller than they actually look. Sometimes the companies are actually even larger than they look, too.
Our sales team members are skilled and EverString taught us how to use it to my knowledge.
It's not accurate - you need to scrub, like Seamless AI.
