The Oceanos representatives are very helpful and responsive, and are able to "tier" our contact results based on the quality and source of their data. This valuation score helps us to identify the highest-quality contacts for our marketing campaigns, and has yielded positive results for our firm.
It would be nice if Oceanos offered manual discovery for contacts not available on LinkedIn or in their third-party databases. However, we feel that the LinkedIn verification gives us the majority of the contacts that we need.
Consider your needs: big data vs. highly targeted data. There is still a level of inaccuracy with scraping contacts across LinkedIn, especially through an intermediary that Oceanos uses to retrieve their LinkedIn contacts.
We have moved to an account-based sales model which mean we are heavily focused on a select group of accounts in our marketing efforts. As a result, the quality of the contacts linked to those target accounts is essential.
Thank you for this review. Social data plays a role in our data hygiene process and serves as a "signal" within both our Data Quality Score (DQS) and ABM Usability Score. The social information is sourced from reputable partners.
I do want to clarify that Oceanos does not scrape contacts across LinkedIn or, in that vein, any social media site. All of our contact records originate from carefully selected third party data providers. Thanks - Brian Hession
