Overall Satisfaction with EverString
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.
Not much training.
On a scale from 1-10, 7.
We use Intent. I'm not aware of any others.
More accurate than other SI tools.
If your goal is to receive effective survey responses, this should have required much less time. Especially when dealing when with sales professionals.
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.
