RollWorks is a B2B account-based marketing (ABM) solution shown to deliver over 5X the ROI of other ABM platforms.
RollWorks, a division of NextRoll, Inc., was in the market for a first-party intent and IP address intelligence data vendor to help strengthen the RollWorks Account-Based Platform. With their goals of improving their enhanced account identification and engagement measurement, RollWorks conducted a competitive vendor analysis in order to identify the best provider for their team.
First-party intent data is an important component of a successful account-based strategy. Without it, marketing & sales teams can be blind to active buying journeys; however, if a company can determine who is looking at their website before a visitor fills out a form, it allows them to identify previously unknown buyers. This means sales and marketing teams can engage these buyers in targeted ways to build awareness and drive engagement with the RollWorks brand.
In order to identify the best provider for their needs and further their ability to deliver enhanced account identification and engagement measurement, RollWorks conducted a competitive vendor analysis among 14 first-party intent data providers.
The information included details about each provider's offering, such as:
Based on the feedback and ability to meet RollWorks’ key criteria, KickFire was invited as a select group of providers from a short-list to participate in a match test which was designed to evaluate the breadth and depth of IP coverage against the accounts that matter most to their customer base.
KickFire emerged as the overall winner when evaluating the scope of offering, flexibility to work with varied technical requirements, as well as both the breadth and depth of the core IP data.
Through this vendor selection process, RollWorks felt confident that KickFire’s TWIN Caching IP address intelligence would help to provide more accurate first-party intent data, which, combined with RollWorks’ proprietary Account Fit and Account Intent, helps marketers prioritize accounts based on their stage in the buying cycle.
KickFire data is now incorporated into the RollWorks platform and available to all RollWorks Account-Based Platform customers.
Terminus is the leading account-based marketing (ABM) platform that enables B2B marketers to target accounts, engage decision-makers, and accelerate marketing and sales pipeline velocity at scale.
Terminus was in the market to implement IP address intelligence within their Account-Based Visitor ID product and needed a technology with the capability to identify visitors on customer websites to validate to customers that ABM campaigns and efforts were working successfully. Not wanting to build the technology internally, Terminus went in search of the industry's best provider.
After extensively analyzing and testing four data vendors based on data quality and accuracy, match rates, and API volume and response times, Terminus was able to determine KickFire was the clear winner in many categories and the best option for a data vendor and technology partner.
Terminus discovered many vendors in the IP address space are able to identify enterprise companies but rely on public data and lack the ability to go beyond the Internet Service Provider (ISP) and identify small to mid-size businesses and enterprise companies. In a test using their own IP address as a ground truth, KickFire was the only provider to identify Terminus as a company, not an ISP.
Terminus felt confident building their platform on top of KickFire's data and combining KickFire's expertise in IP address intelligence with the Terminus ABM platform.
Terminus customers can now measure account engagement, penetration, and behavior on their website, validate their website is converting to revenue, and attribute ABM campaigns to faster sales velocity and success.
