Swordfish has traditionally been a great platform and browser extension for accumulating phone numbers, but they’ve recently expanded their platform to even greater heights. Phone numbers have their place in sourcing, but with how Gen-Z feels about answering their phones…it’s probably not a bad idea to branch out into other forms of contact. With their new sourcing interface dubbed Prospector, sourcing with Swordfish has become a reality.

So what does this platform bring to the table? There’s a decent amount of filters to narrow your search such as experience levels, past job titles, and even company headcount. You can also use their reverse search section to look up a contact based on limited information. This reverse lookup feature can definitely can go toe-to-toe with other contact enrichment platforms.

They’re expanding the feature list to include radius searches, custom boolean strings, and more features to stand out from the crowd. While this platform has been around for a while, sourcing with swordfish is still in its early stages.  They released their contact finding tool in the same fashion and built it into something quite notable, so there’s great potential for them to do the same here.

We’re looking forward to seeing their sourcing tool Prospector grow over the next few months. If you don’t already have an account, when you sign up there will be some free credits to let you play around.
