ListGrabber can extract name, address, email, phone and fax numbers, etc of business contacts from lists, online directories, email lists/ signatures, as well as spreadsheets and documents.
Pros: One of the most tedious part of the whole sales process is to create a list of prospects and get the information corresponding to name, phone, e-mail and other contact details as individual pieces of information. It then becomes easy to get them into sales follow up software packages like ACT! Or Goldmine or the plain old Excel spreadsheet and such other tools.
It will be nice if these details can be retrieved from lists available in the print domain such as yellow pages, white pages or even a mailing list purchased from appropriate source. These however have the information in a combined form not as the required fields separated out. What ListGrabber does is to recognize and retrieve these fields into the follow up software or a spreadsheet as required.
List capture is simple one click operation after settings have been done through the toolbar. Output is a list for review, duplicates are automatically checked by the program. All that remains to be done is to export the data into your chosen contact management software. The tool bar comes with several sample lists that can be selected to make sure your settings are working or to familiarize with the package. The sample lists exemplify several different formats the information may be available at, yet the information fields are grabbed properly into name, phone, fax etc fields.
The user interface is simple and easy as are the settings and operation.
Cons: Nothing obviously problematic was noticed with the application.
Overall: This is well designed and easy to use package that serves an useful purpose, a fit candidate for a 5 star rating.
