Capterra, a Virginia-based marketplace connecting software buyers and sellers, has announced the launch of its new service provider marketplace. A complement to its software discovery offering, this new services marketplace is designed to ensure that users can find and evaluate software, as well as identify appropriate partners with whom to work.
According to the company’s recent survey, businesses are primarily using external firms for data intelligence, custom software or web development, and cloud services. Organizations purchasing marketing services spend the most on a single project, while those buying software development and cloud services spend the most over an 18-month period. Purchasers are looking for providers they see as creative (31%) and flexible (31%), and nearly a third (32%) of services purchasers contracted for custom software or web development.
“We’re launching the service provider marketplace on Capterra.com to provide a one-stop-shop for businesses to find the right software and services they need to grow,” says Claire Alexander, Group Vice President, Brand Portfolio and Marketing. “Time is a mission-critical resource for every organization. Our comprehensive catalog, validated reviews, and world-class research helps businesses make the best use of their time, leading to sustained business growth.”
Over 21,000 reviews across 21 different service categories, ranging from marketing agencies to accounting firms, are now available. As with its software marketplace, Capterra’s doors are now open for B2B service providers to list their solutions and tools. The full Capterra marketplace includes more than 100,000 solutions across 900 categories, and offers access to over 2 million verified reviews.
The product/service catalog, validated reviews, and research are intended to help organizations save time, increase productivity, and accelerate growth.
