Ask HN: What SaaS are you currently paying for?
34 points by pault on Dec 9, 2011 | hide | past | web | favorite | 20 comments
What subscription software services are good enough to fork over your hard earned money each month?



Almost all of these are directly related to running my business, but here we go: Shopify, Zendesk, Mailchimp, Highrise, KISSmetrics, Recurly.

Other "stuff" I pay for that's not quite SaaS: Linode, Twilio, ThemeForest.

What's your app?


It's not yet live, though it will be at the end of this month or early January.


New Relic - App Metrics, Postmark - Email, Beanstalk - Git Repos/Deployments, CheddarGetter - Billing API, Flow - Tasks, Use Case backlog, Zoho Creator - Awesome for quick internal apps, Recess Mobile - SMS API, great company/owner, Highrise, Basecamp


Has anyone actually developed his own ERP on the cloud? I did, as I evaluated many SaaS accounting software and find none of them suit my needs, and NetSuite, SAP, etc. are too expensive for me.


Github - Code repo

Skype - phone calls

Pivotal Tracker - Agile - Yo baby!

Raven Tools - SEO and reporting

Freshbooks - Billing

Quickbooks online - "accounting"

Balsamiq Online - Collaborative Mockups

and I think my new SaaS that I will be announcing in about 5 days will be well worth the money :-)


Olark, among others. I'm surprised no one has mentioned them.
