Our Prospector tool was specifically designed to help...

From financial services and recruitment to other SaaS sales companies and marketing agencies - our tool works for a wide range of businesses, across numerous different industries.

MindBridge, a financial risk assessment solution provider, is just one of our customer success stories. Why did they choose Prospector?

“Our priority was to open up a strong outbound sales channel at MindBridge. For that, we needed validated business emails and phone numbers. We also wanted to build prospect lists based around our target sectors. To speed up the process, we started looking at adding to our existing technology stack.”

Thomas Huffman, Account Development Manager at MindBridge, was incredibly impressed with Prospector’s ease of use and data quality:

“Cognism has delivered a lot for us. First of all, it’s saved us a great deal of time. Pre-Cognism, it took us 5-10 minutes to find a single prospect; now we can find hundreds of leads in seconds. On average, we’ve been able to identify 10,000 new contacts per month from Cognism’s data.”

What can Prospector do for you? 📋

The question here really should be:

"What doesn't Prospector do?"

Easy to use and set up, Cognism Prospector finds and delivers new revenue for you by identifying your ideal customers and helping you engage with them at the ideal time.

Ryan Drummond, Founder and CEO at The Athlete Book, summarises it best:

“Cognism provided not just the data, but also the means of actioning it. You could generate leads, then push them into an email campaign. I was also very keen on their hiring triggers, which tell you when a company might be looking to expand. Cognism had everything I was looking for, all in one platform.”

What are the key features of Prospector? 🔎

There are several key features when it comes to Cognism Prospector. Starting with the ability to seamlessly integrate with your current CRM, including the global market leader Salesforce. If you didn’t know already, we’re an official Salesforce data partner, and our solution is available as an app on the AppExchange.

Tom Andrews, Revenue Operations Manager at PassFort, was delighted by Cognism’s Salesforce integration.

“I can’t believe how simple it was, really! I downloaded the Cognism app from the Salesforce AppExchange. Then, I used Cognism’s API key to integrate it with our Salesforce instance. It was very much do-it-yourself and took no time at all! I was very impressed.”

Adding to the ease of use, we recently launched a new Chrome Extension that enables you to find data on LinkedIn itself - all you need to do is click on any LinkedIn profile and you’ll get instant intel on them, including their business email, phone number and website.


And to ensure you never miss a revenue opportunity each Cognism client is allocated a dedicated Customer Success Manager (CSM) to ensure you get the best results from the platform. They can help you identify your TAM, send monthly success reports and organise weekly catch-ups where they'll share their tips and best practice.

Or you can upgrade to our Interactive service, where you’ll get even more support. Working with you, our Interactive Managers formulate and execute your sales strategy from start to finish.

Tom Andrews of PassFort had this to say about Cognism’s CS team:

I have to say that they are an awesome team to work with. The level of service they provide is easily comparable to that of Salesforce, and obviously Salesforce is a giant! They’re a huge value add for Cognism. I can’t recommend them highly enough.”

With Prospector, we feel we’ve hit the sweet spot between usability and having powerful features that drive results. But don’t take our word for it - here’s what Ryan from The Athlete Book told us:

“It’s a very easy tool to use. The interface is simple and clean. It provides lots of useful analytics, such as email deliverability, read rates and reply rates. It means you can study the data and tweak your messaging, if your campaigns aren’t producing results.”

To help you even more (because we’re good like that!), you'll gain access to an in-house copywriting team, who will work hard to develop accurate and compelling messaging for your outbound campaigns.

This includes personalised sequences that can be automated for increased engagement and conversions.

Plus, with Prospector, you never have to worry about emails bouncing. Our proprietary 16-step email verification technology ensures the highest deliverability rates in the industry - a whopping 97%, on average!
