A new startup called SaaSGenius aims to combine Yelp-style reviews with cloud computing. This week it launched a beta version of its site, inviting people to submit reviews of cloud-based business software. "We all now rely heavily on websites like Yelp and TripAdvisor in our personal lives -- these sites feature trusted reviews to help us make quick, easy purchase decisions," said Tom Gorski, SaaSGenius cofounder and CEO. "Even employees in large companies now expect a more customer-like online research and buying experience."
Several other websites have also attempted to offer reviews for enterprise software. Industry watchers say the most difficult part of this business is getting legitimate reviews.
