"Best Technology Profiler - for the price and convenience"

What do you like best?

The convenience to use - there is no signup, no "free account" where you are constantly being asked to sing up for Premium features. It loads the Tech Stack of the website you're on, plain and simple. And that is all that is really needed from a tool like this.

What do you dislike?

It isn't able to have pop-up notifications, and sometimes doesn't pull crucial Tech services that I am targeting user bases of, but hey, it's free. It gives you an idea of the type of Tech Stack at a glance, all I am asking for.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is the most simple and streamlined of the Tech Stack Profilers on the market. It is for teams looking to better identify prospects in the SDR to AE process.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Identifying ATAM and new prospects for Sales Pipeline. I have been able to confirm Tech is in use, or even combat folks claiming to not use it as an objection. No harm is saying you did your research. Removes some blind outreach.

"Very useful tool for doing market research and competitor analysis"

What do you like best?

Reports based on frequently used categories. Simple and intuitive way to know the current product's usage, customers, and the competitor products. The icing on the cake is the API to know the tech stack of any website. If you want to improve user onboarding and personalization based on the user's website, BW is a must-have tool.

What do you dislike?

The sorting in the reports page is quite cumbersome. If want to sort the websites in an ascending order of Alexa ranking, it shows all the websites without the ranking first and I have to patiently comb through and scroll down to find the relevant data.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are a Product Manager or a Data Analyst of a SaaS product, you can get the full value of competitor research and market analysis exercise by using BuildWith. I have used it and it has immensely helped me. I highly recommend it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- Competition Analysis

- Market Research

- Lead Generation

Helps me to track the usage of my SaaS tool across websites. This has been never easy. APIs to know the tech stack of any website is a nice add-on for my SaaS tool's onboarding process.

What Lead Mining solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"A must have for superficial glances at technology"

What do you like best?

BuiltWith and the BuiltWith Chrome are fantastic tools that allow the user to see all technologies used to build the frameworks of a website. When qualifying potential clients, I use this tool to see the platform they are currently built up on.

The option to use either the full-fledged web app or the browser extension makes for a great user experience.

Being able to build a list of prospective clients based on technologies used is a feature I've only just discovered, but I'm now using regularly.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, there is very little I dislike about this tool. It's a quality, well-designed product.

If I were to make a suggestion, it would be to simplify the user experience of building lists based on technologies used on websites.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take time to explore both the full web app and the Chrome extension. They both offer a great overview of the technologies used in the site build.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm working with clients to see what tools they could be using, or what platform they should be on, to optimize load times and user experience.

"BuiltWith For Targeted Listbuilding"

What do you like best?

This allows you to build a list based on the technology that the site is running. Great for targeting software that you prefer to work with or platforms that you would prefer to migrate or whatever.

If they add a few more functions they could really be an essential marketing tool. After a few closed deals from the trial and you should be able to see enough of a return to get the paid version and keep the whole thing rolling.

What do you dislike?

It is limited at the free level but it's a good value for a paid subscription.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is great to generate a list to use with other products, like an email newsletter or CRM. Make sure to follow all applicable CAN-SPAM laws but it's an easy way to build a targeted list.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helps narrow our marketing and outreach.

"In-depth information on today’s web development market"

What do you like best?

The ability to get website analysis and technology trends can be used in other applications including improving the exisitng website or determine what technology gaps a website may have. Website developers are also able to ascertain the type of technology that was used to achieve various tasks and functions related to website designs and interfaces.

What do you dislike?

Using BuiltWith is free. However, there are other products associated with BuiltWith that offer additional features and also have a payment plan or pricing associated with these features. For instance, BuiltWith TrendsPro which is a research tool for sales teams and marketers , has a minimum monthly cost of $295 per month. User can get free technology usage statistics and information by using BuiltWith.but i belive feature might get limited in future because of this.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Website developers, user interface designers and all kinds of website researchers will be able to use BuiltWith to discover what technologies website pages have or are using. This information can allow these groups of people determine what technologies would be appropriate for their own website projects. Hence, anyone interested in the technologies that a website uses or can use will find BuiltWith a useful application to have.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

BuiltWith is an application that people can use to acquire information about the technology behind a website. The application also provides competitive analysis about each website. Structured like a search engine, users provide the name of a website, as a keyword or search term. Then BuiltWith provides backend details, analytics and business intelligence information for the specified website. Usage formation can also be provided by BuiltWith.

"It's the World's best tool to get intelligent reports"

What do you like best?

I was struggling in my business to get intelligence reports regarding the web technology usage list, keyword list, e-commerce category list, uploaded list, competitor comparison, technology alerts and curated lists. It gives you whole comprehensive reports regarding the keywords used by your competitor websites, all the websites related to e-commerce are categorized into the single category based on intelligent reports, competitor comparison includes the comparison between the competing technologies like the Shopify Vs. Magento. Curated lists include the lists of the technologies provided by the Alexa, listing websites and directories. You are also able to find the related technology alerts to your website based on the up gradation by your competitors.

What do you dislike?

Price for the pro features is quite unfair and expensive. Although, many features have been included in the free member catalog but the price should be low. Customer support team should be more responsive and fast to respond all the queries. Reports should be more intelligent, simple and comprehensive especially the reports related to use of keywords by the competitor websites and upgrading of technologies by the competitor websites on daily basis

Recommendations to others considering the product

You should use this software if you want to boost your business due the sales generated by this tool. It's undoubtedly amid the world's best report generating software and can satisfy your all e-commerce needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm solving many business problems including the keyword based reports based on the insights generated by the competitor websites, the comparison between different technology products and especially the technology alerts. These are first level problems faced by every business. I wasn't able to solve these problems without using this software in the past. It's great and best way to generate reports in simple but intelligent way

"Great prospecting tool"

What do you like best?

Being able to see what technologies companies are using is great as an SDR. My main goal is to look for marketers who are using certain tools. When I see those tools, it gives me an indication they would be a good fit for the product my company is building.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the inability to run a report on a trial, it's easy to use on a surface level, but seems a bit harder to use on a deeper level.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We're not using a paid model, but the free version seems to do similar things to ghostery and datanyze.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being able to see what competitive or complimentary software companies are using when visiting their websites. It's helped me resonate with prospects when reaching out.

"To go tool for site audit"

What do you like best?

Buildwith is an fantastic tool. It provides all the details about the technology behind a website.

It is the first place I go when I am doing a site audit for my clients or to do a competitor analysis.

One of the coolest features is the global trends. There you can see the breakdown about a specific technology.

What do you dislike?

I think the only thing I don't like is the price. Even though Buildwith is very powerful and there is no service like it, they should offer affordable price for small/medium companies what want to use the premium service.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Buildwith when I am doing an site audit. It provides the information I need every single time.

"Not very user friendly but good data"

What do you like best?

The amount and quality of the data is very good and consistent. The amount of filters that you can use is almost infinite and the customer service is very friendly.

What do you dislike?

Since there are a lot of options, I think it's not very user friendly. It took me a while to understand some things and for me it was not very "logical".

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it first before you buy, and investigate if it's the right fit. It's not a cheap tool, so you have to be sure.

However, on the good side, it's a monthly payment, not like similar vendors, so that's a good thing: you are not bounded to year contracts.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was able to generate very helpful reports that I am currently using on a daily basis as a foundation for my activities.

"LOVE this tool!"

What do you like best?

It's almost too easy to use and provides so much information with a simple click of the plug in. Almost always is correct.

What do you dislike?

Rarely this tool is inaccurate or misses tags.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Double check for additional or broken elements that BuiltWith may not pick up, but this is very rare.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Helps me identify the platforms that my clients are using so I can request the appropriate log in credentials since they rarely know what their site is running on. Makes communications much easier. Also I can see what tagging or markup they may have from previous versions of site development tools to help clean up their code.

"Does what it claims, but could stand some improvements"

What do you like best?

Relatively easy to get a list build up and running. If you've ever used any other web based tool you'll be able to figure it out. Have recently upgraded the interface once you get your lists built that include new options like CRM format export but I haven't had a chance to use many of those yet.

What do you dislike?

Once you build a list the way to export it isnt REALLY clear, its there but you have to dig a little bit.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would probably try to do a trial with another similar tool such as Datanyze to see if thats a better fit for you. The monthly option and lower price point with BuiltWith was the deciding factor for me.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using it to pull lists of users of other products that our product compliments.

"Data You Can't Live Without"

What do you like best?

The simplicity of being able to export massive amounts of relevant and targeted data. Builtwith can let you know every website using a specific technology (think Google Analytics, Marketing Automation Tech, etc). This information is invaluable when targeting and segmenting prospects.

What do you dislike?

They're based in Australia which can make customer support challenging - thankfully we haven't had to use that much.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It allows us to deeply understand what software our prospects are using and how we may be a best fit for their needs.

"Great resource for company data"

What do you like best?

Their dataset is very robust. Easy to filter the data down by what technologies, geo, size etc. Make searching for specific or broad technologies easy.

What do you dislike?

The data that comes back can be a bit of a mess. Even while filtering for a certain country I find a lot of the data can be international.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great tool for filtering companies based on the technology they use (ie magento, shopify, ruby on rails). Make sure you review the lists you receive back and that all of the data matches your search inputs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Finding companies and what technologies they use. Filtering those companies by size, get etc.

"Breaking down what it's builtwith"

What do you like best?

I love its easy usability and visual technology breakdown. It's quick and simple to use, with a ton of functionality. Great developer tool and competitor research tool.

What do you dislike?

I dislike needing to sign in for some features, but hey, how can they exist without dedicated users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do it, at least the free stuff. You have nothing to lose.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm able to see what technology a given site is using and it helps me discover more great tools.

"Well Organized and Useful"

What do you like best?

The categorization of the technologies--makes it easier to target certain accounts and to skim the list for what I want.

What do you dislike?

Seems to sometimes miss things and not show what I'm looking for. Datanyze will pick up some things that BuiltWIth won't.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You probably also want to use other technologies alongside it, like Datanyze, Similarweb, Ghostery, etc.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Reaching out to accounts that use technology with which we integrate.
