About Software Connect

Better business is possible through better software. It's our core belief and still as true today as it was when we started in 1996. Since then, over 200,000 companies have relied on Software Connect to solve their toughest business technology challenges. We think we know why too. When you discover the fastest, easiest, and most accurate way to source great software, why search any other way?

We help software buyers find their match.

We employ a team of software specialists who provide free consulting to prospective software buyers over the phone. Our specialist's #1 goal is help buyers find the best options for their needs. And since every software project is different, a plain old-fashioned telephone conversation with each buyer allows our specialists to fully understand their unique requirements. Our specialists are highly trained and have helped over 200,000 businesses throughout USA and Canada find the right software.

How is this service free? Software developers and vendors pay an annual membership fee to be affilated with our service. Standard annual fees keep the service free and unbiased for software buyers.

Not just "accounting software." We serve the entire alphabet soup of business software. ERP, CRM, SCM... you name it. A to Z, there's over 50 software categories to explore.
