Fresh and easy going software for automated and manual data mining

2018-01-11

Pros

I also liked about automated reports to my email, overall database, integrations for other social media platforms

Cons

Sometimes there is little too much data about same project or prospects because there is no pre-filter, maybe in next version or update will add this one.

BEWARE! Horrible experience with a team that will not stand by their product.

2017-10-05

We are actively trying to pursue a refund from the software manufacturer, who, despite acknowledging the problems with their tool, refuse to address them or stand behind their product.

Pros

This software would be a great alternative to Hoovers or Rainking if it actually had quality data.

Cons

For a tool that is billed as a robust sales intelligence platform, much of the intelligence was nonexistent.
