Overall Satisfaction with SourceForge

I personally use SourceForge to find the right software for my business needs. We used a handful of legacy systems and far too many spreadsheets in our business, so I started using SourceForge to find the best software for our business. I used SourceForge to evaluate CRMs, Invoicing software, project management software, and a lot more. I also work directly with my clients and many of them needed help finding the POS software for their needs or other inventory management software. I could just put their criteria in the filters on SourceForge and it helped me find some cool alternatives I had never heard of. I really like their "Alternatives" feature which let me go to a product one of them may have already used and just click on the "alternatives" button and there I would find the top competitors, making my search a lot quicker.
  • Clean user interface
  • Simple to use filters
  • Highly detailed product pages
  • Huge selection of products and categories
  • Search feature could be improved
  • Design could be refreshed
  • Discovered new POS system for client.
  • Updated our CRM based off of information from SourceForge.
  • Simplified my research process when evaluating new products to use.
Those competitors are nice, but I prefer SourceForge because its a little more straight forward. Those alternatives are just a little too complicated for me and they tend to have too many options, making it hard for me to decide which software is best. I also like that SourceForge has open-source options that the others do not, in case I need a free option.
I hardly ever use the support on SourceForge, as I have not needed it. Their product works well for me. One time I had to email them and they got back to me the same day, but that's my only experience.

Do you think SourceForge delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with SourceForge's feature set?


Did SourceForge live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of SourceForge go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy SourceForge again?


From my experience, SourceForge is well suited for people looking for a quick way to evaluate different SaaS products and make an informed decision. It's hard to find all of the best options, but SourceForge simplified that for me by allowing me to add filters to my search so that it only showed me software that was relevant to the size of my company and the other relevant information. I also like how I get to read the reviews of others to help me make a more informed decision.
