Introducing our Buyer’s Guides: A Smarter Way to Buy Software

SaaS Insights

Cledara’s buyer’s guides offer for free all the information needed to make an informed decision when it comes to purchasing software.

Brad van Leeuwen

Ever since our CEO, Cristina Vila, founded Cledara back in 2018, our mission has been to simplify your relationship with software. We believe that teams can do their best work when they’re independent, move fast, and have access to the data they need. Every day, we look for new ways to honor these values, which is why today we’re excited to announce our brand new buyer’s guides. 

Whether you’re a CFO, a founder, a team leader, or an IT manager, these are tailored to make your software decisions more informed and effective.

What’s inside the guides?

Drawing on our proprietary data and extensive market research, each guide covers everything you need to know about a specific software product: Real pricing, popularity insights, summaries of sentiment, use cases, and similar alternatives.

Using data from Cledara

Cledara is a platform designed to save time and money by managing various software products from a single place. It centralizes subscriptions, so users can have visibility over their costs, seats and renewals. This way, it becomes easy to avoid duplicate seats, misplaced invoices, and ownerless tools, among others. 

Since its foundation, Cledara has helped its customers manage more than 1.1 million software purchases and renewals from over 4,000 vendors. The information we have gathered throughout the years has allowed us to put together these guides with precise data.

Why buyer’s guides?

Nowadays there seems to be software for everything, and while it’s great to have choices, it makes it more difficult to decide on one. As we already know, there’s no such thing as a perfect tool, but finding the one that adapts to your needs can make all the difference. 

But with so many options, how do you know which is the best fit for your team's unique position? Cledara’s buyer’s guides offer the most important information you need right off the bat. No forms, no credit cards, no demos.

Each guide offers detailed insights into the top software tools available today, helping you understand not just what they offer, but how they can fit into your existing workflows and systems.

What have we covered?


How much budget can we allocate for this tool? Are we overspending? Get real annual pricing information for each tool based on different companies sizes.


Are there any other similar options? Are they cheaper or more expensive? And what do they specialize in? We have another table for that. 

Use cases

What is the tool known for and what are its best features? Is there something in particular that you need, you can find out here if they have it or not. 

Reviews from users 

You shouldn’t invest your money if you don’t know what other users are saying about it. On our buyer’s guides, we collect reviews from trustworthy sources and summarize them for you.
