Expandi Cyance is the Bombora alternative that delivers better intent with flexible price plans. Here’s a guide to help you in your search for the best intent data provider  right for your business.

Scoring Relevance

Data Customisation & Taxonomy Relevance

Every business is different. That’s why creating a custom list of keywords and intent topics specific to your organisation allows you to track the most relevant intent data – leading to the best results.


Users can select from prebuilt topic lists, but are unable to input or modify keywords or intent topics. Competitors have access to the same data (and therefore might target the same accounts).


Cyance allows hybrid set up. Users can define custom keywords, intent topics and intent taxonomies to be added to the standard keywords. This data is unique to you and is not sold to competitors. Custom keywords can be up and running in less than 4 weeks. Cyance also offers support to help stay on top of emerging trends and opportunities.

There are a number of significant differences between Bombora and the Expandi Cyance platform, especially in terms of the quality of data each offers. But don’t just take our word for it; read what our clients have to say:

LAURA Y EMEA Demand Generation and Digital Specialist

What I like is how you can really tailor the keywords that the platform is using to pick up the behavioural signals across the web using ML and AI so rather than it being based on topics, it's extremely personalised to the problems and challenges that your products solve. This enables you to be super intelligent with the type of activity going on within that account so you can understand what they care about and then target them with the right message. Cyance also have a fantastic Customer Success team which has really helped to maximise results and advise how we can bake the platform into the overall GTM strategy.

LOUIS F Managing Director & Vice President

There are several areas where the Cyance platform has really driven both efficiency and effectiveness. What Cyance has allowed us to do is qualify the hypothesis before investing in demand generation. This mitigates time wasted chasing down miniscule sector opportunities and financial risk (ultimate ROI), whilst simultaneously shortening sales cycles (actually targeting organisations that are looking for solutions we can provide) and improving close rates. As ever, the proof is in the pudding. Doubled qualified pipeline over a nine-month period and improved win rates by 20%+ in the first full year of use.
