At Vendr, we're dedicated to creating a trusted and transparent software buying experience. Today, we announce a new way of helping you find the right software product: Explore.

Explore features over 19,000 software products to help you find the best SaaS solution for any use case. You can quickly surface competitive alternatives, compare tools, and filter to find what you need.

For the top 4,000 products in Explore, we now provide your Vestimate: dynamic market insights giving you a sense of how much you can expect to pay to help you decide on the best product at the best value for you and your team.

If you’re looking to:

  • Spend less time thinking about what software to buy
  • Have confidence that you’re buying the right SaaS solution for your team
  • Be sure that you’ve gotten a fair price that’s benchmarked against similar purchases

Vendr has got you covered.

Your SaaS search now starts in Vendr

The process can feel overwhelming when you start sourcing software. You are aware of the problem you are trying to solve, and you may have one or more products in mind that you are already familiar with.

But how do you know whether a solution is right for you? And how do you understand if the price is even within your range?

Explore offers a new alternative to opaque SaaS pricing pages, giving you dynamic data upfront rather than the dreaded “contact sales” button.

When you search for a product in Explore, you can surface the solution, Vestimate contract price, and compliance details to help you decide whether the solution fits your business.

You can pull up product features, benefits, security, and legal policies within Explore. And we’ll flag if a product is already in use — meaning your company has an active contract.

You’ll also see a list of competitive alternatives to help you compare and contrast before deciding. Filter and sort competitors based on what’s most important to your purchase. Then, our Vestimate helps you understand whether a given product is financially within reach before you start sales conversations.

Narrow your list with commercials and compliance details

After you have made a list of your preferred products, Explore can assist you in making the right choice.

Each Vestimate incorporates public, internal, and user-submitted data into Vendr’s proprietary algorithm while considering contextual information about your company, category, and market trends. Using these insights and data from over 20,000 completed deals, our predictive pricing estimates can help you understand what you can expect to pay based on the size of your company.

You’ll also see compliance details to help you understand whether you can get a specific purchase through your internal approvals before you start the process


Start a purchase with one click

Made your decision? Kick off a request to begin the purchase process with one click.

When your team is prepared to use Vendr customer support services, a SaaS consultant will collaborate with you to offer in-depth pricing recommendations and negotiation strategies. We work with you to purchase software and negotiate for a fair price, using our team's expertise and vast data set of SaaS transactions. We'll work closely with you throughout the entire procurement process to ensure the success of your software purchase.

Once completed, your new contract will be added to your Vendr system of record to help you keep on track of renewals for the lifetime of your supplier relationship. In addition, all purchased products will now be shown as “in use” to anyone else who searches for them — meaning you get your tool, and your company gets to reduce SaaS sprawl.
