The irony is that we spend more time reading reviews on relatively inexpensive consumer services than on what real users have to say about business software and services that are expensive, time consuming, and where the wrong decision can create a huge cost to your business, not to mention a high degree of frustration. See the story illustrated below (please double click on the graphic for the best view):
The Internet is changing how businesses shop. While consumers have learned to check out review sites like Yelp and TripAdvisor before going out to eat or taking a trip, business shoppers have been relying on more old school methods when selecting software and services.
Regardless of whether you have any technical sophistication these days you are expected to be Internet-savvy, to say the least, in your professional environment. The Internet has enabled the explosion of web-based software for every business function you can think of, making it necessary for even the most non-techie business manager and business owner to have a command of which tools their business or department should be using (e.g., everything from email marketing software to remote login tools to web conferencing software, etc.).
This is why we created Comparz.com, to give you a place to shop for web-based software and read what real users have to say. Comparz has over a thousand user reviews on over 150 types of web-based business software. In fact, we invite you to write a review for your favorite web-based software tool and help others learn from your experience.
