Ready Contacts has been a great partner since we started ShippingEasy. They are wickedly fast and very open to feedback on lead quality, etc as we embark on new campaigns. We have found their leads to be higher quality than any other vendor we have tried.

Avention OneSource is a large database of companies and contacts that are aggregated and made available on a subscription. It is now owned by D&B and may be merged into Hoovers (not sure).
Pros: Large database of companies and contacts. Good account level data with industry, revenue & employees. Multiple countries are covered.
Cons: Data is aggregated & not call validated, so accuracy is average. Lacks technology install data & intelligence. Too large, so you have the challenge of finding your specific segment of data, if it exists. No segment specific intelligence like Ecommerce carts etc. Limited data for account-based marketing.
Data.com delivers a database of companies and contacts that are aggregated from crowdsourcing and other sources. It has millions of companies and contacts that you can search from & download.
Pros: Large coverage of companies and contacts across countries. Integrated into Salesforce.com so its easy to use. Email addresses for all contacts and direct dials for some.
Cons: Crowdsourced and aggregated data inherently suffers from accuracy problems that are not ideal for targeted marketing. Limited to no technology install intelligence. Your universe of contacts for specific campaign may not be fully covered. Pricing is not affordable for businesses of all sizes.
