Project management is critical for marketing agencies. We have multiple teams working on multiple projects and with the Jira/agile solution we always know the status of every task and every project, and there is clear ownership of every detail.”
Pricing details are an important consideration when you analyze SaaS vendors. Ask the vendor if they offer price safeguards and contractual flexibility. “Shelfware” has become a major problem in SaaS licensing as customers end up paying for more than they need.
