Choosing the right software solution for your company is a complex process.

In recent years, the landscape of available solutions has exploded with new options popping up on the market seemingly every day. Software review sites like G2 Crowd, Capterra, SoftwareAdvice, and GetApp have emerged to help businesses identify and compare possible solutions. These sites are a great resource once you have an idea of what you're looking for but can quickly become overwhelming if your business objectives are not clearly defined in advance. Even so, more and more businesses are making the decision to buy cloud-based, software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions, instead of building custom, self-hosted solutions.

At Cipher, we have developed a painless process for evaluating software that helps companies make smarter decisions when it comes to selecting a tool that works best for them. Our team has found that a robust and well thought-out evaluation of an enterprise software boils down to 11 key factors. Using this quick guide to select a solution, you’ll be much better prepared to tackle this process and confidently reach a purchasing decision.
