Saratoga Research & Investment Management + Dakota 

Prior to getting access to Marketplace, we were somewhat operating in the dark with respect to potential prospects and, more importantly, contacts.  Marketplace has made our marketing efforts and trips far more efficient and effective. We have also used the manager search information to submit RFPs for searches that we may not have been aware of had it not been for Marketplace.

What were you looking for in a data provider?

Saratoga came to Dakota not knowing the full scope of their data needs, just that they needed something to fill in the gaps. They've found the prospect and contact data, the metro area reviews, and Dakota Cocktails events tremendously helpful since getting started with Dakota Marketplace. 


What problems did Marketplace help you overcome?

Saratoga has had the most success by using Marketplace data to identify the appropriate contacts (and contact information) at prospective firms. 

Why was Marketplace the solution?

Marketplace helped fill the gap within Saratoga's data, and the team can’t imagine any other organization doing a better job.
