 SLMA Comments:   

Everyone has to make money somehow and this company makes it through advertising, free product profiles, paid product reviews, paid articles  and lead generation from those people that visit their site and want to know more about listed products.  It is a good service, but it is by no-means totally comprehensive or the only source; although it is a good source with usable comparisons.  It is not an objective review and that’s OK because we know it going in for the top 40 list.  What’s reported seems fair, honest and very useful.   They have listings for 294 CRM products.  

There are many more products found on the site, they claim 4002.    There is also a Browse business Software Page is which very useful.
