B2B Research & Reviews
To put it simply, we identify leading software and professional services firms that deliver results for their clients. We do this through an innovative research process that melds the best of traditional B2B research and newer consumer review services. Our research helps start-ups, mid-market and large enterprises find partners that meet their needs, whether for a one-off project or a long term relationship.
Clutch was created to solve an important, two sided problem. How do buyers of professional services and software find the best companies to meet a specific need? And conversely, how do leading services and software firms stand out from the sea of mediocre competitors?
As a buyer with a large budget, one option is to hire an expensive research firm to identify even more expensive, monolithic providers. But what if you wanted to work with leading specialists at more nimble, focused companies or had a limited budget?
Clutch was born in 2012 to help solve this problem. Our founders had first hand experience as both buyers and sellers of services and software and knew there must be a better way. We looked to both the large, traditional IT research firms and more innovative consumer review sites for inspiration and developed a new approach that included the best of both worlds.
We tested our new methodology on the mobile app development market and, after a few twists and turns along the way, have become recognized as the go-to resource for buyers and sellers of app development services. With this success under our belts, we are expanding into other technology, marketing and business consulting segments and have researched and reviewed 500+ companies covering 50+ markets.
