The alternative to ContactOut for enriching B2B emails
We have developed real-time algorithms to generate professional email addresses, and test servers for email verification (up-to-date data and GDPR compliance).
Dropcontact is the only solution that does not build scraped or recovered databases for B2B enrichment.
The only GDPR-compliant solution
Instantly generated data
Why Dropcontact is the best alternative to ContactOut
Dropcontact has developed its own email address search algorithms and its servers for verification. It is the only GDPR solution that does not use personal databases: fresh data guaranteed.
B2B email finder
The real-time generation of professional email addresses by our algorithms brings two main advantages.
Firstly, the data delivered is systematically up to date.
The obsolescence of the data stored in a database does not and will never impact Dropcontact's performance.
The second is that the information is delivered in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation.
Dropcontact algorithms generate up to 80% of business addresses from the company's full name and domain.
ContactOut displays a database of +1.2 billion email addresses, retrieved or built-in in various ways.
For each query, ContactOut will provide the data contained in its contact database.
To maintain and guarantee fresh data, the solution must constantly scrape thousands of pieces of information from the web, or use third-party data providers.
A 100% GDPR compliant tool
The GDPR prohibits the resale of nominative data without the explicit consent of the person concerned.
ContactOut, to resell data stored in a database, has necessarily asked for the opt-in of the 1.2 billion people in its database... what do you think?
Dropcontact, thanks to its algorithm-based system, is the only solution that is 100% compliant with the current regulation.
We do not use any, yes any, personal data to add professional information.
Beyond the legal compliance, the real-time search allows us to deliver up-to-date information, systematically.
B2B emails verification
The test servers that Dropcontact has developed allow us to verify all the addresses provided.
The verification is included in the enrichment of the email address, for a validity rate of 98% (85% for catch-all domains).
ContactOut only provides email addresses from a constituted database.
Contacts and companies duplicate merging
Thanks to its algorithms, Dropcontact can detect your duplicate contacts. Once identified, they are merged by Dropcontact to become one. Your data is qualitative and up to date.
ContactOut on the other hand is not able to detect your duplicate contacts.
When Dropcontact is integrated into your CRM, it checks, enriches, and corrects all contact, lead, and organization records. No human intervention is required to ensure that your CRM is up to date and that you have all the information you need for prospecting: email, LinkedIn profile, telephone, business sector, last published turnover...
Beyond consolidating all information, Dropcontact algorithms merge all duplicate records and retrieve information stored in signatures and email bounces from people you exchange with, to enrich your CRM ( 🔒 only yours).
ContactOut offers integration with Salesforce CRM, but only to push contacts from ContactOut to Salesforce.

They prefer Dropcontact
"The contact database is a business's Achilles heel, especially when the business can't afford to spend enormous amounts of money. I was expecting something good, but not as impressive as this."
Great tool to optimize your contact list and get verified emails
There's nothing I dislike about Dropcontact. It has been a great tool to optimize our sales process and get to the inbox of qualified leads. I recommend Dropcontact highly.
Can't find a more reliable and consistent tool since 2019
Data Enrichment is perfectly solved by Dropcontact with a lot of data returned and by time more and more data available. Data cleaning is also really helpful for using those infos into variables within my emails. All of that is easily accessible
Definitely a tool that must be part of a CMO stack
I first used Dropcontact as CMO and I found the tool very easy to use with a good value for money and excellent customer care. Later, as a Marketing consultant, I recommended it to many of my clients and I always had very positive feedback.
