Does Cognism Truly Have More Contacts Than UpLead?

Cognism claims to have 400 million business profiles and 15 million company accounts in their database.

Here at UpLead, we have over 155 million contacts and 16 million global companies in our database. How do you explain this contact gap?

Two words: data accuracy.
When anything qualifies as a “contact” (even wrong emails and dead leads) you can get to 400 millions in no time.
Unlike Cognism, UpLead’s B2B contacts are backed by a 95% data accuracy guarantee. Anything less than this, and you get your credits back.
Good luck finding another sales intelligence tool that’s as confident in the quality of their data.
