The Best Business Products of 2016
We've tested several hundred Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) business applications in the PC Labs over the past year, and found that 42 SaaS apps are the heads of their classes in 13 categories. These are the ones you should buy for your business to prepare for success in 2017.
SAP Digital CRM
SAP Digital CRM offers generous features that will suit smaller companies that are new to CRM software, though some may balk at being locked into just one vendor.
