What's the one thing that all businesses wish they had more of? Time. As elusive as it may be, we are always looking for new ways to free up space to focus on the things that really matter. Software can make all the difference in saving time: Check out our sponsor Capterra's free ebook -- The Big Book of Free Software -- to help find the best software for your company.

Luckily, technology is continuously providing new opportunities to take on some of the more mundane or highly complex tasks that consume so much of our time at work. Many businesses rely on a variety of automated systems in addition to devices that increase the speed or productivity of day-to-day tasks.

The biggest challenge these days is not a lack of available software resources, but rather the overwhelmingly abundant amount of potential options. When it comes to business software, our sponsor Capterra, a Gartner company, takes the guesswork out of product selection.

What is Capterra?
