Comparison sites allow you to see most of the top solutions in one place. You can also compare specific capabilities.

However, there are many websites to choose from. Type ‘best scheduling software’ into Google and you will get plenty of answers. Review websites can be really helpful, but it’s important to know how independent reviews are.

Looking for actual testimonials from users in similar industries to yours can be the most influential. Here are some of the software review sites that you might want to look at during your scheduling software search:


1. Capterra

With more than one million verified reviews published to the site, and thousands more added each month, Capterra claims to offer the ‘most robust, user-driven perspective on software in the world’. Capterra is free to use, though they do say that Software companies pay Capterra when they receive web traffic and sales opportunities.

Capterra does list all vendors, not just those that pay, so that you can make the best-informed choice. The trick is to look at the ‘Sort by’ box on the right hand side of the screen after you have made your search. The default setting it to show Sponsored (i.e. paid for) results first. Changing this to ‘Highest rated’ may give you a more helpful list. Always bear in mind the number of reviews and specification though.

A piece of software might have amazing reviews, but if it’s only from a few people or doesn’t quite offer the functions you need, such as all-device access, then you will need to keep looking.


2. Software Advice

Software Advice allows you to connect with an Advisor to help you with your software search. It also features Buyers Guides and ‘Front runners’ which are based on recent reviews.

Their drop down filters enable you to quickly access software solutions suitable for your industry or used by companies with a similar number of employees to your own. Consider related searches to scheduling like Project Management, as these may offer suitable options as well.


3. Software World

Review sites like Software World are packed with trending software and real-time reviews. These B2B review sites segregate software ‘on the basis of value, cost- efficacy, accessibility, conductivity, and collaboration’.

Depending on your requirements, you might want to search for Resource Management Software or Employee Scheduling Software and look for companies displaying their ‘Top rated’ badge. They say their ratings are based on overall product performance and free from any bias. They take into account reviews and ratings, social media buzz, online presence and other relevant information.



4. G2

G2 aims to cut the time you spend researching software and make purchasing business technology ‘as easy as buying consumer products’.

They offer ‘unfiltered reviews’ from peers who use similar solutions and product rankings aggregated from peer reviews and social data. Search filters allow you to choose between the highest rated, easiest to use and Free or Paid for options. You can also look by size of company, languages supported and deployment, such as On-Prem or Cloud.
