Brightlocal research points out that 88% of people read up to 10 reviews before making a purchase decision. SaasGenius gives visitors the opportunity to compare features of software they already know. Their users discover new tools which may serve as a good alternative to what they are already using. They call themselves the Yelp of the SaaS world.
SaaSGenius already features over 300 vendors in 12 categories and today opened a public beta for their users.
