Very helpful when prospecting companies and individuals. I found the company detail information accurate. I liked the integration with salesforce the most and that you could click into the insideview platform straight from a record. I feel that it complimented the information we already had in SF and created a better view of our clients/prospects.

Likes Least

Sometimes it didn't always have company data which I needed for prospecting and then I had to do more research, but that I feel would be a problem with any software like this.

Recommendations

Before purchasing, see howit integrates within your other technologies/software. The best product will compliment others you already have.

InsideView is easy to use inside of Salesforce. The employee size is usually accurate.

Likes Least

The LinkedIn feature used to show if the person has a LinkedIn profile, but only if the person was in their system prior does it now show. I guess they lost their integration or something.

Recommendations

This tool will help you if your sales team has geographical territories and you need to search by a set criteria for companies and/or people.

The ability to update current accounts in our database as well as import new accounts. We also use the family tree to show the account hierarchy in Salesforce. They are very easy to work with.

Likes Least

The family tree does not automatically scan your database to find accounts that you currently have. We've also seen difficultly in updating the Fiscal Year End month in Salesforce.

Recommendations

When building lists, always start with the smallest geographical area as possible.

I think the UI could have been a little better. Although the plugin gives all the data it would be better if could be presented in a more visual manner.

Recommendations

This is a really useful plugin. I have not used any other plugin till date for such features. Although there are other tools such as Salesforce and other marketing tools that does the same functionality, the fact that it came free with the basic functionality along with Sugar CE enabled us to get the benefits at the very beginning.

Likes Least

When looking at acquaintances and their connections it does not give a WHEN for you to know how they know their connection therefore when you reach out to them to see if they can introduce you sometimes it may be a strained relationship and you don't know until its a little too late.

Recommendations

If you looking to expand connections its a great tool - if you looking for sales I do suggest getting a full view of everything before committing.

The business card reader is absolutely phenomenal. I've turned my friends on to it and they are all hooked. It's single handedly worth the price of admission.

Likes Least

Support, Full Contact address book which is capped at 25k individuals. Why cap it at all if we are paying? I'd happily pay more to get access to more contacts. Dupes is okay but not great. I have a lot of individuals John Smith Smith because of their style of merging and it almost always chooses the wrong email address. Searching was improved but not greatly and I am always disappointed with the usability on mobile apple products.

Recommendations

Have a plan before you start adding contact address books and linked in.

I like the in-depth company portfolio provided on each page. You are also likely to get a decision-maker org chart, or at least hierarchy mapped out.

Likes Least

Specific contact information such as emails and numbers are scarce. I would consider this more of a supplemental research tool to confirm validity of data found elsewhere and find out information such as revenue, and parent company.

Recommendations

I would say give InsideView a try. You will find that for the cost, it is a powerful tool and can boost the effectiveness of your inside sales and business development efforts and help them establish a list of solid targeted clients.

Integration into Salesforce is my favorite feature. It allows us to very quickly sync company and contact information.

Likes Least

It is only a tool worth using for companies of significant size. The information for small and medium size companies is either inaccurate or nonexistent.

Recommendations

I would recommend getting some type of trial and really try to ask as many questions as you can. If you are looking for a resource that will help in obtaining pertinent data for smaller companies, this may not be it. The only way to know would be to try it for as long as you can.

With Inside View you can very easily have the information lookup done within seconds. This means you can save tons of time of manual research. Your sales team can therefore close many more deals!

Pros

Can be easily integrated and support is great.

Cons

Very rarely the information lookup can go wrong if other data related to the contact is not correct.

InsideView makes it easy to build lists that target the company type, size and geographic area as well as targeting specific titles/functions of the people you want to reach out to. We also use InsideView to update company information for the companies we already have in Salesforce.

Pros

Extremely easy to update records with one click. Also very easy to build lists for exporting.

Cons

Only being able to export 2,000 records at a time. Phone numbers for people are generally the main number for the company. Also the address for a person is usually the main corporate address whether the person is at that location or not.
