*Updated* Integration spotlight: Gauss

Overview

With our Gauss integration, it couldn’t be easier to find company names, domains, or companies based on their number of employees, location, and industry.

Pricing and limits

Each function execution costs $0.01 and returns as much data as is possible according to dashdash’s cell limits. For very broad searches, this averages out to around 900 responses.

Functions

Function Description
SEARCH_COMPANIES_GAUSS Find companies by employees size, location, and industry.
GET_COMPANY_BY_DOMAIN_GAUSS Get company details based on their domain.
FIND_DOMAIN_GAUSS Get the domain of a company from its name.
FIND_EMAIL_GAUSS Get a person’s email based on their work domain.

SEARCH_COMPANIES_GAUSS

Use SEARCH_COMPANIES_GAUSS to find companies based on their number of employees, location, and industry. You can use the Companies recommended table to get all your results, including their name, domain, founding date, sector, employee range, address, and LinkedIn profile, into a table with just one click.

Syntax

SEARCH_COMPANIES_GAUSS(employees, location, industry)

Parameter Mandatory Description
employees Yes Number of employees. For example: ">50" or "<1000".
location Yes Company location (country, region or state, city). For example: "United States" or "London; Manchester; Liverpool".
The responses returned will favor the locations in sequential order. That is, there will be more responses for the first location than the second, the second to the third, and so on.
industry Yes Company industry. For example: "retail" or "banking;retail". For a full list of industries, check the note below.

:memo: Note: Just remember: to enter numerous locations or industries, you need to use a semicolon (;). This way, you can state locations more precisely ("Houston, Texas; Austin, Texas") as well as use industries that already have a comma in them ("Leisure, Travel & Tourism; Food & Beverage").

This is quite useful.
Wanted to understand , how to get emails of the companies that come out in the results. Dont want all the emails , but just a couple to start with. Is there a way to limit the emails requested for each company ?

Hey @Hari :wave:t4:

Here are some ways in which you could get the emails of different companies (based on their domain names) -

  • Using the SEARCH_DOMAIN_HUNTER function on each row that has a company domain to see if you get a few email IDs from there
  • You can use our Find companies and leads template that makes use of our LinkedIn functions to find people first and then choose to trigger Hunter function & find their emails

From the second option, you can choose whose email you’d like to fetch based on their LinkedIn profiles.

Hope this helps :slight_smile:

Gauss is delivering some great results, better than clearbit and mattermark, great work guys!

Is Gauss DashDash’s own product or have you simply made it easy to connect to someone else’s API?

Thank you @jack, we really appreciate the feedback.

It is a combination of both. In some cases we built the logic to find the right data points and in others we’re serving 3rd party data (with data preparation and cleanup in our end).

Great stuff @henrique

You guys should consider spinning out Gauss as a standalone enrichment API product, a la Clearbit.
