That’s why we created Inspector Jones - because it should be easy to find the right enterprise software. Inspector Jones gives you professional reviews written by seasoned IT experts… so that you can build a shortlist of the right business software and services in under an hour.

How Inspector Jones helps you shortlist

  • How successful other customers have been with this software or service,
  • How a vendor meets best-practice,
  • Whether the company is healthy, well-funded and has a clear strategy,
  • Target service levels and support,
  • Historical availability and downtime,
  • Data centers and their ratings,
