馃挵 What SaaS products is your company paying for?

Please comment below the ones you remember! The least known or the less satisfied you are with it the better.

Why? If companies are paying for something, there's a problem worth solving right there. And if your team is not much satisfied with the solution, there's room for us indie hackers to build something better 馃殌

    Hi Bruno,

    I am part of AeroLeads and we have been using woodpecker for cold outreach.

    It's a great tool with an option to add other SMTP servers (which give good open rate) and pricing of the tool starts at $40.

    There was a side project created especially for this - if you will search, you might find it on IH. It was showing what services startups are subscribed to and how much they are paying. I can't find it though.

      Interesting, do you remember anything about the name or description so we can find it?
