Cognism Integration


Cognism is a sales intelligence platform. Cognism helps businesses connect with their dream prospects by providing premium contact information.

The Store Leads database does not include any personal information, so customers often use other data vendors to find contact information for the stores in our database. The Cognism integration makes it easier to access Cognism contact data when using Store Leads.

  1. To enable the Cognism integration, visit the Integrations page in the Dashboard and click on "Cognism".
