I love finding efficiencies. Something of a preoccupation /illness of mine. Here’s a couple of businesses that address my sickness.

Zintro and Capterra

The web obviously makes it easier for organizations to find the services they need. But these two sites formalize the process by offering a searchable marketplace for vendors and clients, and helping to manage the transaction. Capterra is focussed on software; Zintro appears best suited to consultants.

Capterra allows users to locate software vendors and to request responses from multiple vendors.

Zintro is a space for experts in various fields to upload their profile into a searchable database. The difference of this system is that it faciliates a phone call consultation. This standardizes the form of the transaction between client and vendor – simplifying the process and minimizing the client’s risk.
