    Pros: 

    Saves me lots of time getting a variety of company infomation

    Cons: 

    Nothing major, but having to search via .csv best for searching for lots of companies

    Would be excited to be able to directly search from the site on a few companies only or one by one without using .csv, maybe be able to build lists and segregate for marketing purposes.

Thanks for hunting @s2_krish @mrmiyagi, lead gen can be so time consuming that being able to input company names and get info back is great. How do you guarantee the accuracy of the data? Do you have plans to add features like finding actual individuals / specific people based on job titles? That would be more useful for the work I do.

@s2_krish @abadesi Thanks for your comments Abadesi! Data on individuals is next on our list after finalising companies, it's good to hear from you that there is demand for that. Our tool will use search terms to find "top" results, we don't manually verify this data, but do provide multiple sources to try and increase the likelihood the right company has been found. We might add an "accuracy likelihood score", to try and allow simple filtering of the things we are more confident than not is a company. The benefits of this approach are we get up-to-date data from the web, and don't need to charge as much as other data providers as it's mainly server resources and a few APIs we are paying for. Further feedback most welcome (you can catch me here or david@powrbot.com).

Would it be possible to search specific companies based on name or url without uploading a csv?
David Watts
David WattsMaker@mrmiyagi · Automation addict & founder @ powrbot
@davidmaliglowka We could introduce that, but the idea is for just one company you could perform a Google search and copy information just as easily. The benefit we bring is when needing to do 10s, 100s, or 100s of searches. Let me know your thoughts.

@mrmiyagi That makes sense, but I know I personally didn't want to upload my data in there without knowing what I would get back. By being able to do one I would understand the value of the service better. Also understanding what info should be in the CSV would be helpful. For example just a company name or their website as well.

@davidmaliglowka That's good feedback, and makes sense, thanks. I did have a "Need help? Download a sample file" which is a list of 50 company names in a CSV to upload and test it out. I think the approach you're asking for would be a lot better to quickly test the product - I will add to the list to implement. It can handle a company name or a website.

Nice product as long as you need only company information. For B2B prospecting, contact info of individual employees in the company is vital. As of now, I use Clearbit - among other tools - for leadgen. If Powrbot introduces that feature, look forward to using it for that purpose.
