Overall Satisfaction with Crunchbase

Crunchbase is used in two primary ways: prospecting leads and understanding market spaces by analyzing trends in different verticals or industries. I primarily use it for the latter of these two options (Zoom mainly for prospecting). I work in many industries and understanding where to focus my time is crucial for productivity.
  • Up to date continuous reporting on market trends
  • UI is excellent
  • Customer care
  • Data quality can always improve
  • The more reports the better
  • Automating report building would be nice (may be possible, I have yet to find it)
  • Productivity is increased substantially
  • Gives a better understanding of industry, improving customer calls
  • Another tool to enhance prospecting, yielding more sales.
This question always gets me. In a world with so many database solutions, it becomes quite difficult to compare, its the subtleties. Bigger is usually better...Crunchbase has gone through over 300...300 rounds of funding. In a world where there are so many options, going with the crowd can be the best choice. Going with the money in this case.
Crunchbase reporting is by far one of the best systems I have ever seen...Salesforce is pretty solid as well. The quality of reporting really starts with the massive amount of data that Crunchbase manages each day. In regards to prospects or marketspace, I can pull data on basically anything imaginable. Just Imagine.
I think Crunchbase is one of the best tools I have for understanding market space and changes in the industry. For example I work in medical, A&D and electronics - three massive industries. Understanding which are trending towards or away from my product is key to understand where to spend the most time day over day.
