Finding a good price on a single-user desktop program is one thing. Getting a good deal on software that will be shared by 10, 20 or 300 users — or more — is something else. For one thing, you can’t rely on software reviews at that level because most software news publications don’t have the resources to test software meant to be used by many people, and if it’s software that is typically customized heavily for each corporate user, a review of how it works in one situation may be meaningless to you if your use scenario is not the same as the reviewer’s. Indeed, the only way to get an unbiased review of enterprise software is from other users. This is what G2 Crowd is all about, and why you need to know about it.
