We sat down with Sara Farkas, Chief People Officer; and Zorana Mihic, Project Manager (Market Insights) from Ivy Exec to hear their thoughts on how ContactOut has improved their business as a Market Insights Firm whose Primary Research Services support Corporations, Consulting Firms, and Market Research Firms. The Ivy Exec team had been using other sourcing platforms but found them to be failing by providing inaccurate emails and phone numbers.

It can be incredibly frustrating when you put time and effort into creating a personalized email for an Expert only to have it bounce back with a return to sender.

In addition to that, their projects often involve reaching highly specialized subject matter experts​ ​that cannot always be located easily online. Ivy Exec, Market Insights tested a number of research platforms and compared the quality. ContactOut came out on top amongst competitors.

Corporations, Consulting Firms and Market Research Firms come to Ivy Exec for a high touch client service experience and access to high caliber experts that are often difficult to connect with.
