I'd say don't do big upgrades when you first get customers and completely change your interface. It limits being able to interact with the product
I would high recommend kite desk but does have a lack of functionality simple task can be rather difficult when the first version released i thought it was the best tool a shame the update killed the functionality.
Kitedesk is a great way to get new data as well as fill in gaps you might have in your CRM. I especially like the Chrome plug in for when I am on LinkedIn or reading a news article
It is difficult to manage the myriad responsibilities involved in getting an outbound sales campaign started. From who, to what titles, to what messaging, to what next - there is a seemingly endless set of decisions. With KiteDesk, we were able to quickly and easily identify the right roles in the right organizations in the right market sectors on day 1. In fact, we went from 0 to 740 outbound mailings the first day using KiteDesk and have been rolling on continuously since then. If fast, easy and effective is your goal - KiteDesk can help you get there...FAST.
Easy to use interface that allows you to quickly and easily identify roles, companies and industries that fit your marketing strategy. The ability to get those identified contacts into a mailing list format and upload them into SalesForce without some crazy process is awesome. I don't have time to fuss around and KiteDesk lets me get from login to mail campaign quickly and easily.
These aren't cons so much as small opportunities. Tell me what source my prospects are coming from and also let me automatically return bad leads in bulk. That's all folks - everything else is great.

Do not hesitate to get KiteDesk. We considered Oracle and SalesForce products before looking at KiteDesk and I can tell you without hesitation that bang for the buck with KiteDesk is way more than anything we could possibly have gotten with the others.
OMG the best product ever. We do 1,000's of prospect programs, and by far the best prospecting tool to find the correct data. Great data in - Great Results out..
A great tool for saving time when researching for prospects. When you are on a webpage there are colored Kites next to each prospect name and company. You can easily identify if this person/account is already in you Salesforce. If the prospect is already in Salesforce as a lead or contact you can click on the kite and open the record. It pulls all your information from Salesforce for a great fast user interface. I was the first at my organization to use the tool and now the rest of my team use KiteDesk. No more half filled out lead/contacts records!
I tried the demo before purchasing and what I found was this: KiteDesk quickly became an essential tool in my arsenal. It was easy to use and, while I may not use it to the full extent of its capabilities, I use it daily. For me, it's a great tool for scrubbing new contact websites for the particular staff members I'm looking for -- I don't want to waste my time nor the time of those I'm needing to communicate with. I don't need all of the staff listed...just certain ones and I'm able to use search criteria to do so. I'm a one-man-show so I really don't have many in-office contacts to develop the "warm" introductions. I see this as a great component, as well, but I've not yet delved into that aspect. For me, I like the simplicity of use and found I was quickly integrating it into my daily processes. I'm also using Salesforce and this integrates very nicely -- allowing me to bring in new people as leads or contacts, along with their company information (that, I'll add, includes some other valuable tidbits of information) very easily. One last thing...KiteDesk staff enjoy their company and it shows. While my contact with them has been limited, you can tell they value what they are providing and enjoy where they work!
The Kitedesk Extension is wonderful for making it easy to keep info up to date in Salesforce. Its critical when prospecting to see who in my network can make introductions into contacts/accounts.
Of all the technologies we've added to support our LeadGen team, KiteDesk by far has made the most impact! As we search LinkedIn for our ideal prospects, KiteDesk makes it easy to quickly add them to our CRM with 2-3 clicks of a button. No more manual entry or junk data being uploaded by solutions like data.com. 100% better! While other solutions exist out there, KiteDesk has highly accurate direct dials and emails. Others tend to have general main corporate office numbers. I also like that KiteDesk is continually tapping their install base to evolve their products features and functionality. I've recommended KiteDesk to industry peers and have even jumped into a webex to show them how it works! Our entire team would be lost without it.

The web-based solution targets its users’ ideal customer profiles, or ICPs, for highly-efficient prospect research. Using the Internet’s most accurate databases and researching technologies, KiteDesk is able to provide salespeople with detailed lead information, such as email addresses, phone numbers, and links to social profiles.
With premium data at their fingertips, salespeople are better positioned to close more sales and improve their own performance records.

KiteDesk is a cloud-based platform that salespeople can use to quickly fill their pipelines with qualified leads. With tools for improving lead generation for outbound sales teams, the software has been designed around the concept of the Ideal Customer Profile. Its premium search has built-in demographics that provides users with thousands of "best lead matches."
Salespeople who use the software are able to seamlessly manage the leads they’ve sourced through both KiteDesk and any existing CRMs. People and accounts can be dropped into a CRM and placed on an “Action List.” KiteDesk also comes with a pre-configured integration to enable leads, or activities with leads, to route directly into connected CRMs. A Chrome extension makes it possible for this entire process to happen on one screen, without clicking between multiple browser tabs.
With KiteDesk, salespeople can tailor their searches to pinpoint leads at a granular level. Top hits from those tailored searches can quickly be added to a Prospect List, and all information is synced with the connected CRM in real time.
As a salesperson, you can use KiteDesk to quickly access millions of qualified prospects, as it sources from the best online databases. You always have the option to pull up only those leads with accurate email addresses and phone numbers, which is an impressive time-saver, as well.
KiteDesk fills the void between most marketing automation platforms and CRM systems. The solution allows sales teams to find leads and then take action on the most qualified prospects. It does this without polluting its users’ connected CRMs with unnecessary data.
When you start using KiteDesk, you can stop trying to prospect in your CRM, as it has been designed in a way that makes lead tracking seamless. All vital information is accessible on one screen. On each prospect’s contact card, you’ll see all lead activity, find familiar connections, and see the lead’s activity on social networks. You can even email your leads, and these messages will be auto-archived to your CRM.
Social networking has changed the way top salespeople do business. KiteDesk is leading the way in social selling by enabling its users to tap into their social connections as a way to drive prospecting and lead generation.
Using Advanced Connection Scoring, KiteDesk provides a way for you to choose from among the ranked scores on each of your Contact or Lead cards. KiteDesk looks at the data available from contacts throughout your organization and your own social networks to determine the strongest connections to any given prospect. Click the “Request Introduction” button to quickly leverage your own social connections, as well as the connections of your professional network and your entire company.
Manually placing phone calls, recording calls, logging calls, creating follow-ups, and syncing all this information to a CRM is a waste of time. KiteDesk streamlines the process with the KiteDesk Dialer. This includes a click-to-call button that enables salespeople to quickly execute top leads at the start of each day.
Begin each morning with taking a look at your Prospect List, then use the KiteDesk Dialer to make your calls hands-free. The app will automatically note each interaction and log all of your calls to your CRM. The calls you make are automatically recorded, and you have the option to review calls or archive them with a few simple clicks. You can also add your own notes next to the prospect’s profile data based on what was discussed during your conversation.

It provides native integrations into email, calendars, and contacts with Gmail, Google Apps, Microsoft Exchange, and Office 365. It is also able to pull information from social channels such as LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Klout, and AngelList.
Many KiteDesk users choose to integrate their existing CRM. Its initial CRM focus has been on integrating with Salesforce using the Salesforce API, and it's also a certified app in the SalesForce AppExchange. KiteDesk integrates with any other CRM through a file export.
