The only email finder and B2B data enrichment solution based on real-time algorithms and without any database. Up-to-date data and 100% GDPR compliant.
The alternative to Clearbit for B2B email enrichment
Using powerful algorithms, Dropcontact provides up-to-date, verified and real-time generated B2B contact data 🤖
Business name emails and company information are guaranteed to be up to date.
Goodbye data obsolescence!
Why Dropcontact is the best alternative to Clearbit
Dropcontact is the only Email Finder that provides email addresses and business data in real-time, without the use of any database.
B2B email finder
Dropcontact powerful search algorithms find up to 90% of business email addresses, depending on the target.
The information is generated in real-time: no need to worry about data obsolescence.
When you know that more than 33% of B2B contact data becomes obsolete in 1 year, the freshness of the data is a real issue for sales and marketing teams.
Clearbit works quite differently. The solution uses a database consisting of over +200 million contacts across 20 million companies.
Beyond the fact that we cannot guarantee fresh and up-to-date data, we can ask ourselves the question of the origin of this data. Have these millions of people explicitly given their consent to the storage and resale of their data?
Clearbit uses over 250 data sources that we cannot identify to update its email address database each month.
A 100% GDPR compliant tool
Beyond providing up-to-date email addresses thanks to our real-time algorithms, this operation allows Dropcontact to be the only 100% GDPR compliant solution on the market.
For ethical and performance reasons, Dropcontact does not exploit or resell any stored personal data.
To resell personal data stored in a database, the GDPR stipulates that it is necessary to have the consent of the person for the storage of their data and the resale to an identified third-party. Do you think that Clearbit has collected the consent of the 200 million contacts contained in its database?
Clearbit claims to have over 250 data sources that we cannot identify. What's the reason for the Clearbit Connect Chrome extension directly into your Gmail email inbox for free? 🤔
B2B emails verification
All email addresses provided by Dropcontact's algorithms are also verified by its test servers.
There is no need to re-verify email addresses in a verification solution unless you want to spend credits 😉 The validity rate is 98%. For catch-all domains, 85%.
The R&D engaged on the subject allows us today to be the only ones able to verify a part of the so-called unverifiable email addresses 💪
Clearbit, meanwhile, updates its entire database every 30 days to ensure "fresh and up-to-date" data.
Contacts and companies duplicate merging
Dropcontact has developed its own automatic duplicate merge system. Every contact, lead, or company that exists in duplicate will be automatically merged, with no loss of data for the entire sales team.
Clearbit is not a solution that detects duplicate contacts or companies.
Dropcontact integrates with Pipedrive, Salesforce, and Hubspot to enrich, cleanse and normalize your CRM data in real-time, and merge duplicate contacts, leads, and organizations.
You no longer waste time figuring out how to contact your prospects: adding or editing a contact or organization in their CRM is enough to add the contact's email address, phone, LinkedIn profile, civility, and all company information.
The integration is available from 24€/month.
Clearbit is also integrated with Salesforce and Hubspot and allows you to enrich contact and organization records with over 90 provided data points.
