"A Good Tool For Finding Companies (But Sometimes Inaccurate)"

What do you like best?

I like that DataFox enables you to set a wide variety of filters when you search for companies to prospect. Just to name some of these filters to give you an idea of the level of detail, you can search by industry keywords, headcount / size of company, location, revenue, job postings, conferences they're attending, when the company was founded, and my personal favorite is that you can search for companies that are or are not currently in your company's salesforce.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that the tool populates companies that are outside of your filters. For example, I work for a software company and I am an Account Manager and we sell our software to other software companies. When I want to look up software companies in a certain space, like Accounting Software for example, I set that filter. What I've found however is that a lot of the companies that are populated are involved in Accounting, but are not software. The difficulty this presents is that I have to pick through the list before I start prospecting, otherwise I will waste time/resources on companies that are not even within my search criteria.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Datafox is a solid tool when it comes to assisting you in finding companies to prospect. It's a lot better than trying to piece together prospecting lists with Google. That being said, be prepared for some inaccuracy in the company searches you do.

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

Without Datafox, we would have to use basic google searches to find different software in different spaces like event management, cyber security, accounting software, etc. Then we would need to manually enter these companies into a sheet so that we can import them into salesforce. Datafox comes in and cuts out a lot of the manual labor there. It populates large lists of companies, and though sometimes the lists are mildly inaccurate to the filters, it is still very helpful.

"Very helpful for BDR/SDR roles"

What do you like best?

It's been great to be able to create lists of companies in my territory. The list creating feature is definitely one of my favorite features of DataFox as you can find any sort of list online and have DataFox create a list of those companies for you. The HG Data Technographics feature is great too as it helps you see what types of systems/software that a company might already be using. You can also create lists based on many different filters and you can get pretty creative with these filters when creating lists which is why I have multiple lists for companies in my territory.

What do you dislike?

The employee size count can be off at times.

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

It helps me have an easy to use list of companies in my territory where it gives me information about the company, any sort of funding that the company may have had, and what software the company might be using. It also gives information such as HQ phone numbers and their location which helps as well.

"A Powerful Prospecting Tool "

What do you like best?

Put simply, I love being able to have an updated dynamic list of accounts within my sales territory organized based on campaign criteria I choose - it takes a lot of manual work out of my day. It's great being able to get as granular as I want to as well as being alerted when certain status triggers occur such as when companies within my list have new rounds of funding or go through expansion. The icing on the cake is how seamlessly it integrates with Salesforce.

What do you dislike?

There could be a bit more clarity on the difference between signals vs. alerts which caused some initial confusion but our customer success rep sorted it out promptly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Their CS reps are great! You can lean on them if you have questions and they will get back to you promptly.

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

For outbound sales, it's crucial to be able reach the right account at the right time in the most efficient way possible. Datafox has allowed me to cut down on my manual processes and come to work each day with a list of viable accounts that I did not have to build myself. If I wanted to have a campaign targeting medium sized companies, within a certain geographic area, using XYZ tech stack, I could have a list populated easily and that would be scratching the surface of how granular I could get.

"Great for finding and tracking startups"

What do you like best?

Datafox provides a simple interface to lots of really useful functions:

- Tracking companies using lists. It is easy to add a company to a list through the browser sidebar, share lists with the team, and download lists to go.

- Finding out what conferences the companies we are tracking will be attending so we can prioritize events that matter

- Easily integrate Datafox with Salesforce so that our Salesforce fields can be added to Datafox filters and list columns

- Great signal tracking for our companies from social media, news, etc., and the ability to select specific signals for alerts. Alerts can be shared instantly with the team via Slack

- Very good customer service: the Datafox team quickly responds to requests for conferences, lists, new companies, and company edits. They even take those crowded "landscape" images that show all of the company logos in a particular sector and make a list for you.

What do you dislike?

There are a few improvements that would make life easier:

- I wish the Similar Companies recommendations were more precise. It would be so helpful if this feature could help more to find comparable companies.

- I wish this had a mobile app

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

We use Datafox - alongside Pitchbook and Salesforce - to find, track, and keep in touch with startups that our VC firm would potentially invest in. The benefit of Datafox is that it is easy to use and helps make our team more productive without requiring a lot of configuration or training. It's great to be able to quickly get a list of all of the companies that we have spoken to in the Chicago area and download the list before heading out there. Or sharing a list of all of the companies that we are tracking that are at the conference a colleague is attending so she can reach out to them in advance. Or getting alerts on a startup that just hired a new Chief Product Officer to prompt us to reach out to hear what's new. It saves time.

"Great tool with accurate data"

What do you like best?

DataFox is a great tool for getting information about companies and alerts when companies you follow are in the news. It is also useful for prospecting within those companies. If the company you are prospecting isn't already in the DataFox database, you can request they be added with a simple click.

What do you dislike?

Some of the profiles they serve up are bare bones and bereft of data, this is often not the fault of DataFox as the companies this applies to are often quite small or are just getting off the ground.

Recommendations to others considering the product

DataFox is a great tool, they have been very responsive to our requests and have come into the office to train the team and solicit feedback on how they are doing and how they can get better.

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

DataFox provides a foundation for how we prioritize inbound leads. It helps our outbound efforts by serving up news about the companies we are following, providing a compelling reason to reach out.

"Great for Account level Data - List Matching works well"

What do you like best?

The Account level data is great. Datafox has helped me massively with the de-duplication of accounts, which was a big problem for us. We have tried other vendors in the past for this, and none have been as accurate as Datafox.

I haven't tried their newer feature RE: prospecting with contact level data, so I can't speak to it.

What do you dislike?

The UI on their website is not the best, sometimes I get confused between "List Building" and the "Data Insight" tabs. It would also be great to be able to export lists with a larger number of companies in it.

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

We use Datafox from both an account cleanup, enrichment, and acquisition standpoint - it is a massive help when it comes to territory planning season. Their success team is engaging and able to understand your business needs very quickly, and recommend solutions to get the ball rolling sooner rather than later.

"Excellent data, helpful tools, easy UI"

What do you like best?

The plug-in to Salesforce is great, they provide CEO contacts which is such a time-saver, lots of the data proves to be correct (things like employee count and recent fundraising), and I love the conference prospecting capability and Slack news updates as well.

What do you dislike?

I find the notifications that come up on the bottom right can be annoying, and sometimes things take longer to sync than usual, but I just x-out the notification boxes and the customer support is always super helfpul to the sync issues we have.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do it! We love it and recommend it to other biz dev/investment dev/corp dev/all sales teams

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

DataFox helps us source more leads and prioritize outreach more efficiently, improving our CRM's quality of data and our overall success in targeting/reaching prospects.

"Good for company prospecting - bad for lead prospecting"

What do you like best?

Datafox is easy to use and is a great tool for prospecting companies. The extension is also great for seeing info on the website that you're prospecting. They have good recommendations on comparable companies and their data seems to be really valid/up to date.

What do you dislike?

Their UI isn't very intuitive. They also bait-and-switched us when we bought. We were very vocal about wanting a tool for prospecting leads (individuals, not companies) and needed a tool that would allow us to capture company stakeholder emails and phone numbers. They didn't let us trial this feature during our free trial, but assured us they have this info and even showed us the list of our company's users and contact info during the demo period. We felt that was enough info we needed to ensure they had the data (since we weren't allowed to trial that part). It was only until we became a customer and were able to access this feature that we realized that they did not have the level of user data that they lead us to believe. They even used a 3rd party tool to populate the data on our company that they showed us during the demo, but never disclosed that info to us.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do not buy this product if you are looking to get individual contact info.

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

Quick access to company and lead info.

"Great Platform "

What do you like best?

the sheer amount of accounts that datafox can pull at once is incredibly helpful for building out initial target lists in sales org.

What do you dislike?

sometimes with larger lists things can move very slow and lists don't load as fast as i'd like but then again downloading information for 1000+ accounts would take anyone a reasonable amount of time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a new tool that really takes a lot of the work out of your day if you are looking for information on multiple accounts. If you want to upload new accounts into SFDC then this is a great way to build those initial lists without clogging up your linkedin accounts.

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

Digging up account information for net new business. Really this is a wonderful tool to have within sales organizations that rely heavily on market data to build email cadences/sequences.

"DataFox...the friendliest fox you've ever met "

What do you like best?

There customer communication is top notch. Keeping us updated on changes, updates, and expansion plans. They go above and beyond to understand what we are looking for from Datafox and work with us to find the best solutions. They understand our business and needs! Furthermore, they do a fantastic job of keeping us in the loop and promoting changes and updates that could specifically benefit us.

What do you dislike?

I have yet to encounter something I dislike. The recommendations we have put forward have been taking into account by the DataFox team.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get started, take advantage of all aspects!

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

Finding specific use cases of technology companies would have to be using to be a fit for our software. Benefits of seeking out companies that have no idea our platform exists.

"Great for prospecting and maximizing conference success"

What do you like best?

I like how Datafox has put a lot of time/innovation into giving reps visibility to the companies they're working with and their presence at upcoming conferences. Not only do they offer solid enrichment of company information but their coverage of software companies (who we sell to) is very broad.

What do you dislike?

Not much to dislike honestly. I'm not sure if notification capabilities exist where service gives me updates on companies I'm tracking and reasons to reach out in relation to their attendance/sponsorship of shows, but I'm sure this capability exists. Also have not gotten a ton of value out of their SFDC integration, but it could be user error.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you use conferences as a lead generation and/or sales enablement tool you should give these guys;' service a shot - makes it way more easier to be organized and targeted.

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

My team sells to software companies and meeting them at shows, specifically our target personas, is a huge lead generator for us. Datafox is helping us target the right shows and further set up efficient plans to speak with and/or otherwise contact the attendees.

"Great product Great data!"

What do you like best?

DataFox syncs and integrates our SFDC data so we not only can pull DataFox data but we can use our own CRM data within the tool. Very convenient.

Accurate company and contact data.

What do you dislike?

Nothing from my standpoint but from my end-user perspective sometimes little tricky training my new sales reps how to use the tool since there is so much you can do with it, but since we have purchased, DF has had continuous improvements (insights tab, etc.) which is something you need and search for from companies like this.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very recommended

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

Territory, revenue, company data. Net new companies and or Contacts that will push over to our CRM with clicks. Territory analysis and much more.

"Senior Recruiting Manager"

What do you like best?

I use Datafox to find new companies to source from that are similar to ones we've had success with in the past (eg similar industry, location, and technologies). I also leverage the signals in Datafox to target candidates at companies growing through change or major events allowing me to engage them at the right time (which is super important in my job).

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the contact info for people at the target companies is out of date.

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

I am solving the need to manually find new companies to source from-- Datafox allows me to keep dynamic updated lists of companies as well as discover new ones without much effort.

"First time Datafox User"

What do you like best?

Datafox has been my lifesaver. I am In charge of researching our ideal customers and It has been such a resourceful tool for he past 3 months. It has a built In Chrome extension which makes It extremely easy to research each account. I definitely recommend Datafox to any company.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes when the companies are fairly new, there is no revenue information on them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Download the Chrome extension! It is so beneficial and easy

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

"Great Product - Even better CS Team"

What do you like best?

We've used the signals from Datafox to identify our Tier 1 accounts for the last two quarters, and have had conversations with highly qualified prospects as a result.

Having the platform suggest target accounts based on a model of existing customers is valuable.

What do you dislike?

Platform is very robust, meaning it took some time to get a full understanding of all the functionality.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Keep listening to feedback and implementing it, love the pace of innovation.

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

"UI is great for complicated processes, horrendous for basic things"

What do you like best?

Much better bounce rates than Datanyze, the insights feature is incredibly useful, love the conferences and slack notifications, searching on multiple technology, location, company size, etc parameters, ability to scrape job listing descriptions from within the tool

What do you dislike?

The UI for complex processes is great, but it is like a blind donkey wearing mittens designed a lot of the simpler features. For some reason when looking at contact info you can not sort alphabetically by company, so I end up exporting to a CSV just to do this EVERY SINGLE TIME. Why god, WHY??? Just one example, but most of my gripes about DataFox are of this nature. We were also wrongly promised that we could use the salesforce plugin, but it didn't work with our version of Salesforce- which we had told the Sales Rep about.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Not great for finding individual leads, good for account-level prospecting

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

Easier to prospect based on multiple parameters

"A better way to predict who will buy and prospect with certainty "

What do you like best?

The ability to pinpoint likely buyers, company scores and insights and the elegant interface.

The DataFox team is amazing to work with and very open to customer feedback. They understand what it means to partner with customers. This evident in the product evolution - especially the latest release that has some impressive new features.

What do you dislike?

Limited filtering on custom data sets.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't just look at Datafox as another database, but a way to enhance your prospecting accuracy. Prospecting success is driven be how relevant/insightful you can be. DataFox quickly gives you insights and real data you can use to get the right prospect's attention.

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

Prospecting for new clients in the commercial real estate market is very challenging given the extreme level of competition and the time sensitivity of requirements (potential deals). You can easily waste time prospecting into accounts where a deal was never going to materialize.

Datafox allows me to track tenant strength in the Silicon Valley commercial real estate markets, predict potential future tenant requirements and to prospect into targeted accounts. Instead of calling on 200 accounts, I can focus on the 30 that will most likely buy. This has had a dramatic and positive impact on my sales cycle and close rate.

"Amazing tool "

What do you like best?

They have really clean data.

You can also set up a bunch of notifications and these notifications drive our outreach strategy

What do you dislike?

They try to give you personal data like emails and phone#s

The data is not great and the just need tot stick with company data

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't use them for Numbers of Emails.

The company data and notifications makes it worth the money

Also, you can send them a URL of a site and they will scrape it for you and upload the list of companies on that page.

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

Every SDR on my team has a license. They use this to understand the prime targets in their territory and to create notification based prospecting strategy.

"high quality data enrichment with the best interface and actionable, real-time updates "

What do you like best?

the interface and useability of their web app is far more superior than other platforms that we use. this allows me to easily answer many data related questions. In addition, they offer real-time updates that can sync with slack and provide a ton of value to a sales team. We can elect to receive updates for when targeted companies raise money, hire a new executive, and much more

What do you dislike?

They do not have data on # of open position on a company's site which is a strong buying indicator for our company. We are happy to use multiple data enrichment vendors though.

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

-sourcing relevant updates for companies of all sizes

"Excellent Resource for Companies"

What do you like best?

DataFox has provided a great resource for our team to find additional prospect companies to prospect into. They've opened up a wealth of data, information, and insights into those prospect companies and we've leveraged the tool as a valuable source.

What do you dislike?

We've had challenges with finding accurate and great individual information on contacts within the prospect companies. I know they're working on increasing and improving their individual data and contact information, which would greatly assist the entire platform.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend DataFox, highly, for gathering Company data, information and insights; however, I would caution and dig further into if you're able to capture the individual contact information you're seeking. Overall, it's been a positive for our organization.

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

Our business problem that we're solving for is gaining insights, data and information on prospective companies. The benefits we've experienced include being able to identify new prospect companies, as well as gaining valuable insights/business updates on them.

"Great Prospecting Tool"

What do you like best?

I use DataFox frequently to assist with early prospecting and lead generation efforts. DataFox pulls from multiple resources and the contact information it returns is typically reliable. I also frequently save searches and use DataFox filters to do initial searches on potential target companies.

What do you dislike?

I don't have too many complaints about the tool. Sometimes I think that the user interface could be improved to make the platform a bit more intuitive. I think that the News feature could be very interesting but I rarely use it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are a number of prospecting/sales intelligence tools out in the market now. I'd recommend giving DataFox a try - it is a strong, comprehensive offering when compared to the platform price.

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

As someone who works in sales and is constantly prospecting into new companies/accounts, DataFox helps me to 1) find potential new customers and 2) find contacts at those companies. Because the platform helps with both aspects of prospecting, it saves me quite a bit of time in the early portion of a sales cycle.

What do you dislike?

The lack of more mainstream/enterprise information. The numerical data seems to be off a bit.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great tool for SDR's to build list of accounts. Not great for enterprise teams.

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

It is simple to build a list of accounts to go after or ID from. The UI is better than building a list off of a competitor.

"Great prospecting tool for the businesses I need "

What do you like best?

My favorite parts have to be their filtering functionality within the search when I'm looking for new companies and the ability to see similar companies. It totally streamlines the process of prospecting for me.

What do you dislike?

Not every employee who I'm able to sync over to SFDC has an email or contact info, which I wasn't aware of before I had synced several over. That's not necessarily on DataFox but is the only flaw I can think of.

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

It helps reduce the amount of time I'm aimlessly searching for companies on Google, enables me to sync over leads quickly into SFDC, has an intuitive UI, provides great background info on the companies, and allows me to view competitors.

DataFox can find me all kinds of data from funding information, overview and keywords of companies, general size of the companies to lead information. Meanwhile, I found the growth rate is useful.

The accuracy of the data, especially revenue size could be improved.

Found several cases where same funding round are counted twice.

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

"Love DataFox!"

What do you like best?

DataFox has lots of useful information that various people on my team can use. My favorite function is the contact search. I like that fact that most of the info is correct, but if something is old or not correct, you have the ability to let them know and they'll give you credit back.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes for smaller companies they do not have much info - this is primarily when I use the DF Plugin for google. But that is pretty rare.

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

DataFox has been great for building lists about companies and for finding contacts. Its a great UI, easy to use.

"Great tool for account based marketing "

What do you like best?

DataFox allowed me to kick off a TAM expansion project and push those accounts to Salesforce so we could transition to an ABM strategy.

The UI has so many bells and whistles, it can sometimes be overwhelming. That being said, my customer success manager always answers my questions as soon as they come up.

Territory carving, tam expansion, and account prioritization

"Solid Sales Resource "

What do you like best?

DataFox instantly enriches our leads with information around industry, tech stack and a ton of other data points. As a Salesforce Administrator, this has allowed me to set up rules to auto assign leads to the right reps.

What do you dislike?

I've heard from my reps that the UI takes some time getting used to, but in terms of the data foundation for Salesforce, there's nothing to dislike.

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

Before, our inbound reps would have to spend hours finding the information that DataFox sends to us instantly. It's saving us a ton of time.

"Increased my OB success"

What do you like best?

Creating custom lists based on my territory.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes employee count is off and I've had instances where the HQ in DataFox doesn't match the coma

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

I'm finding companies to outbound to faster. Using lists I've created based on territory to filter companies by industry, employee count, funding, etc. I used to scroll through our massive database of companies in Salesforce and it would take me hours. Now, it takes me 30 minutes-1 hour to find 3-4 good companies and contacts to reach out to.

"Decent, but there are other better tools"

What do you like best?

The search function (to find companies with certain attributes) is very intuitive and easy to use. It made the the search process itself easy.

What do you dislike?

The company descriptions provided were extremely high level and often did not describe what the company actually offered. In addition, the search capability itself did not seem very "intelligent".

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

My job requires finding a lot of startups to sift through. Having this type of service made the search easier by just getting a spreadsheet of startup names. I'd like to note that I am no longer using Datafox due to the earlier reasons provided above.

"Easy to use UI and accurate prospecting data"

What do you like best?

Datafox UI is sleek and easy to navigate. The ability to create news alerts for account lists is helpful and partnering with HG Data for technographics is nice

What do you dislike?

While the data is mostly accurate, SMB accounts sparsely have enough contacts (if any at all)

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

I use this for prospecting. The biggest benefit is accurately identifying prospect technographics
