This week, global app store provider SaaS Markets announced the launch of its latest marketplace, Appclick America, giving American small and medium sized businesses access to a searchable database of more than 1,300 web based applications designed to meet a variety of different business needs and purposes.
The app store includes categories such as accounting and finance, data management, IT, sales, security, and website and content management.
In the photo above, you can see some of the categories that businesses can browse off to the left, and then some of the apps available in the Business Management and Analytics category, including one sponsored app. Users can also compare the apps and their features to others in the same category to see which one would make the best fit.
“As an experienced entrepreneur and tech executive, I know of first-hand the frustrations of trying to identify the right tech tool necessary to manage things like cash flow, projects, outbound marketing and other critical issues that have an outsized effect on business success,” said Ferdi Roberts, founder and CEO of SaaS Markets.
The apps in the Appclick America marketplace go through a pre-qualification process to ensure that they are appropriate for business users and of high enough quality. Roberts said that 82% of apps are rejected from the site for those reasons, so the ones that make it through are qualified for small business use.
With the sheer number of SaaS applications available, a resource like Appclick can help businesses make sense of the selection and choose the apps that best meet the business’s needs.
And in addition to the apps available for businesses to browse, the site also features some educational resources to help businesses get the most out of their applications and run their businesses more effectively, including demos of some of the available apps.
SaaS Markets was founded in 2010 and is based in San Mateo, California and Dublin, Ireland. The company has an internal team that is expected to grow to around 30 by the end of this year.
