An overall quality score (0-100) and separate quality scores for individual data points are provided. Leads are also flagged as consumer (B2C) or business (B2B).

The service helps ensure leads are genuine, so your sales and marketing teams can confidently determine which prospects have the most potential, while significantly reducing time wasted on bogus leads, which can be particularly challenging in international markets.
