Pros: One of the best features of Vainu is its ease of use. As someone in the business development space, I want SaaS programs that allow me to dive right in and access the kinds of information I need. Vainu does just that. It is a creative solution that allows me to gather information on companies worldwide.

Moreover, Vainu has a team committed to customer service and keeping customers happy. They have been there from demos and beyond, willing to answer any questions and train me along the way.

If you're looking for a tool to help you start really prospecting and figuring who may need your product or service, Vainu is the way to go.

Overall: -- Efficiency in generating prospect lists
-- Exploring new markets to sell to
-- Gathering information about trends in target industries
-- Relating to customers/prospects through data about their companies

Vainu continues to improve on its database every day (they can track more than 100 million companies worldwide currently). They are a startup that customers are evolving alongside. I find that the platform has continued to improve in the months I've been using it -- as with any startup, change is going to be a part of the company. I've found that the changes they've made have improved my experiences as a user.

Keep in mind: Vainu focuses on company information and it's not a database of contact details. However, they have a nice LinkedIn integration available for finding decision makers.

Glad to hear you find our solution easy to use! Hopefully we'll be able to help you "dive right in" the company information you need in the future as well!

BEWARE! Horrible experience with a team that will not stand by their product.

Pros: This software would be a great alternative to Hoovers or Rainking if it actually had quality data.

Cons: We purchased Vainu (in the US) in July 2017. From the beginning we had issues with the validity and accuracy of the data. For a tool that is billed as a robust sales intelligence platform, much of the intelligence was nonexistent. We brought this to the attention of management and leadership who promised resolution. Here we are in October 2017 and despite having clear documentation of the product's shortcomings, the team will not process a refund of the product. (BEWARE: their user agreement does not permit for a refund and also states that they have no guarantee that any of the product data is even valid.) For their US product, all monetary numbers are still listed in Euros.

Overall: We are actively trying to pursue a refund from the software manufacturer, who, despite acknowledging the problems with their tool, refuse to address them or stand behind their product.

Vainu helps to find profitable sales prospects fast and at scale, with minimum effort.

Pros: You save time and find right prospects as fast as possible. It's also easy to sort prospects by industry, revenue, digital foot print... etc.

Cons: Vainu has fixed all the bugs we have reported. So no, I can't really say what I would like least about it nowadays...

Overall: More quality prospects, time savings, better sales management, better sales tracking, satisfied sales people :)
