“We’d worked with Alert before and they were our first choice when we needed some detailed insight on a group of companies we were thinking of mailing in a new marketing campaign. Alert’s Corporate Health Check report was the perfect way to find out how these companies were really doing, financially and strategically, and whether they were going to be good prospects. We were delighted with the detailed data Alert provided which has helped us pinpoint the best companies to target, weeding out the 40% that weren’t. We then asked Alert to data-cleanse the contacts and append more of a similar profile - 64% required updates. Using these two services has saved us time, money and other resources and enabled us to produce a highly focused campaign and an excellent return on the investment. ”
Simran Braich, Sales Executive, People 1st, HR consultants
“Our company has been a subscriber to Alert since June 2009 but we were aware of the company for several years beforehand. As a small business, we had previously evaluated a number of other insight and intelligence companies but had experienced issues with their data quality, in particular the contacts. Alert's data is easy to use, well organised and good value. It assists us in delivering great service to our own clients who depend on our fast, expert support. The Company Reports, Business Leads and LinkedIn connectivity are very good. We also like the Market Focus Reports which give us useful background knowledge on specific sectors and are great for our senior clients in preparation for interview discussions. Good customer service too and the company listens to, and acts on feedback and ideas.”
Karoline B, Client Services Manager, HR support services firm
“I have been a subscriber to Alert since June 2006. Initially I wasn't sure how the investment would work out, but 10 years on I can definitely say it was a smart decision! We need regular access to high quality business insight data quickly and easily. I use Alert principally to build lists and for detailed financials and employee data, but also occasionally dip into the Key Contacts and Company Profiles. The system is intuitive and the information is up to date, easy to use, reliable, and supported by a friendly and knowledgeable service team! ”
