Most new companies find it difficult to find the right startup tools for building up their business on the Web without contracting high priced consultants or researching on their own with the subsequent danger of making costly mistakes. This is where ‘analyzo’ steps in, doing the research for you with well-structured curated lists of Internet business related SaaS offerings.
The New Delhi, India-based company was founded by Rubin Sabharwal.It’s a Web platform that employs a team of experts that helps startups & other businesses with advice on the best software tools for a large number of categories.
In a recent post in Reddit, Rubin stated:
Our search tools let you filter products and plans from the leading software vendors. You can discover new software and even compare plans across multiple vendors.
As an entrepreneur who runs a few internet businesses, I always found it challenging to find the right software tools for my business. The objective of this website is to help others like me select software products based on their requirements.
The information on the Site is presented in such a way that you can either get suggestions based on the stage you feel your business is in (Ideation, MVP or Growth), or through a hierarchical list of product categories. At the 1st level you’ll see a breakdown of the type: Analytics & SEO, Hosting & Cloud, Financial Tools, email, Collaboration & Productivity, Tools for Developers, startup tools…
Drilling 1 level down it gets very detailed & specific. For instance, email:
- Email Hosting
- Email Intelligence
- Email Tracking Tools
- Email Marketing
- Email Spam Testing Tools
- Email List Validator
- Transactional Email
- Online Newsletter Tools
- Email Opt-In Tools
Finally at the most detailed level, a list of recommended offerings is presented with a succinct description that generally goes right to the point without it seeming like a marketing pitch, as well as a price range for each product or service.
Staying with our previous email category example, & this time opting for email intelligence within that category:
Top Tools to get email IDs and leads –
FullContact provides a suite of tools to support individuals, businesses, and developers in managing and enhancing their contact data. The FullContact Person API allows customer application to lookup information about a specific person by passing data associated with that person’s email address, phone number, Twitter, Facebook, or vCard.
At this level of specific service or product offerings (most are Software as a Service or SaaS), you can use analyzo to prepare a handy tick-box type comparison table, where you can compare the offerings at a glance & make your decision based on their comparative merits. So if you are a startup & are looking around for startup tools, maybe analyzo is the place to begin.
