How We Review Software: A Behind-the-Scenes Look at Toksta's Evaluation Process
As a business owner, choosing the right software for your company can be overwhelming. With so many options out there, it can be hard to know where to start. That's where we come in! At Toksta, our team of experts evaluates software based on seven key factors that matter to businesses like yours. In this post, we'll take you behind the scenes and show you exactly how we review software to help you make the best decision for your business.
1. Range of Features
The first thing we look at when evaluating software is the range of features it offers. We want to make sure that the software has all the tools and capabilities you need to run your business effectively. For example, if you're looking for a CRM platform, we'll check to see if it offers features like contact management, lead generation, email marketing, automation, analytics, reporting, and more.
2. Value for Money
Next, we compare the price and value for money of each software platform against its competitors. We consider how much each platform charges per user, per month, or per year, and what features and benefits are included in each plan. Our goal is to help you find a platform that offers the best value for your money.
We also check how many integrations each software platform has with other popular tools and apps that you may use in your business. For example, if you use an email provider like Gmail or Outlook, we'll check to see if the software integrates with those platforms. This can save you time and effort by allowing you to access all your tools from one central location.
4. Free Trial Length
We know that trying before you buy is important when it comes to choosing software. That's why we check how long each platform offers a free trial for new users. We also look at how easy it is to sign up for the free trial, what features and benefits are included in the free trial, and whether there are any limitations or restrictions during the free trial period.
5. Price Scalability
As your business grows, your needs may change. That's why we look at how well the pricing of each software platform scales as your business grows. We consider how easy it is to upgrade or downgrade your plan, how much it costs to add or remove users, and whether there are any discounts or incentives for long-term contracts or annual payments.
6. UX / Ease of Use
We know that user experience and ease of use are important when it comes to choosing software. That's why we look at how intuitive and user-friendly the interface is, how fast and reliable the performance is, how easy it is to customize and configure the platform to suit your needs, and how well the platform supports different devices and browsers.
7. User Reviews
Last but not least, we analyze user reviews of each platform on sites like G2.com and Capterra to gain insight into the real-world experiences of people who have used the platform. By looking at what users like and dislike about each platform, what problems or issues they have encountered, and what suggestions or feedback they have given, we can better understand the strengths and weaknesses of each platform.
So there you have it! That's a behind-the-scenes look at how we review software here at Toksta. Our goal is to help you make an informed decision when choosing software for your business by providing you with accurate and useful information about each platform.
