@auren I think it would be awesome to build (in the future) a bot for recommendations.... Text XXXXX 'What companies use HelpScout?' OR 'Alternatives to Optimizely' etc etc Would be awesome :)
Auren Hoffman@auren · fmr CEO of LiveRamp
@bentossell whoa ... that is actually an amazing idea. one could text or ask directly from slack or twitter. (or even from email if one was old school). this is definitely something I hope we can do in the future. anything to make the buyer experience better. thx!

@bentossell you could see what companies use Help Scout right now -- https://siftery.com/help-scout
Ben Tossell@bentossell · Community Lead, Product Hunt
@vammok @auren I know you can see it already, but it would just be a convenient way for people to look up stuff super quickly. Also a lot of companies are/and will be taking advantage of the increasing chatbots this year (check out this post by @chrismessina ) - it is a big movement and with all the amazing data you collect, it could be an amazing addition to your offering.
Vamshi Mokshagundam@vammok · Cofounder, Siftery
@bentossell this is certainly something we'll think about! a slack bot in the making, may be ;)
Ben Tossell@bentossell · Community Lead, Product Hunt
@vammok yeah for sure, I think Slack should be first. I'd consider FB Messenger afterwards, after the increasing number of businesses joining here and their opening up of Chat SDK
Vamshi Mokshagundam@vammok · Cofounder, Siftery
@bentossell interesting this...didn't have FB messenger down as something a lot of businesses use. i could see why though, almost everyone advertises on FB, might as well use it for other work needs.
Ben Tossell@bentossell · Community Lead, Product Hunt
@vammok yeah likewise.... but having 800M users on your messaging platform, you can bet that businesses will take note. (or should!)

@bentossell @auren This! Please. We have an immediate need for this exact function. Looking for alternatives to XMatters and Pagerduy.
Auren Hoffman@auren · fmr CEO of LiveRamp
@ryanmtaylor @bentossell we are working on a comparison feature and more advanced discovery that hopefully will help you. hope to ship in March.
ryanmtaylor@ryanmtaylor · CoFounder of AllTeamz.com
@auren @bentossell I showed the product to a couple of folks and the consensus was it's a great tool. Now if we only had a place to discuss some of the features and implementations of these separate applications, it would have value far above what it already offers.
Sam Doshi@samir_doshi · Co Founder @ Relayo.com
@bentossell @auren Have always wanted to peek into goings on at juggernaut startups. Interesting idea! When I used to sell enterprise software - I wanted to have something like this to share with my potential clients so that they can garner context and feel the safety in numbers... will keep this in my collection for sure.

Been using siftery for almost a month now. Share what products your company uses and Siftery recommends you what products to use. You can check out the software products that Uber, Dropbox, Slack, Product Hunt, and 130,000 other companies use. Siftery also tracks over 5,000 software products with a list of companies that use them. For ex, Checkout what products Product Hunt uses, discover which companies use Google Analytics , explore products used by Unicorn companies and discover products used by portfolio companies of 500 Startups & Y Combinator. I love their onboarding. You’ll need to login but it’s very slick. Once you click on a few products you use, you are navigated to your own page and their recommendation engine kicks in to suggest products based on what you already use. P.S They have a huge database of products and now has become one of my hunting grounds to discover what products to hunt on Product Hunt :)

@kwdinc it looks awesome. how did you discover it?

@vammok · Cofounder, Siftery
huge thanks for hunting us @kwdinc! six months in the making, we’re super excited to share Siftery with the Product Hunt community. we created Siftery to make software discovery easier and more meaningful. over the last couple of years, we’ve been lucky enough to see the software-eats-the-world phenomenon unfold. even a small startup like ours uses over 60 different pieces of software to run the show today, so that’s something! many of these products weren’t our first choice though. we had to chop and change quite a few times to get to a stack that worked well and we were happy using. this was the case with our previous companies too and those of many of our friends. so we got thinking. in an era where trying out almost anything is free or cheap, why are so many companies wasting valuable time working with products that they ended up chucking? turns out (this is our theory anyways), not enough companies start out with the right options in the first place. Siftery is our attempt at solving this. by making it easy for anyone to explore what top companies like Uber and Airbnb, or any other company like yours uses, we can get you started on the right track. the best part though is our recommendation engine that suggests software to you based on the exact products you use. the more products you enter, the better the recommendations for you and everyone in the Siftery (and Product Hunt) community. so all product hunters out there, do join the party!
Ben Tossell@bentossell · Community Lead, Product Hunt
@vammok it is certainly a good place for companies to start looking, especially if they have no idea. Certain solutions work for certain companies so I like that their are recommendations of others similar. How many software products are currently on Siftery?

@_jacksmith They reached out to me a month back. 500 Startups invested in both our companies. Met the founders 2 years ago in a 500 startups event.

@bentossell right now we track around 5000 products. some of interesting ones you might want to check out profiles for would be Customer.io (https://siftery.com/customerio), Segment (https://siftery.com/segment), Greenhouse (https://siftery.com/greenhouse), Extole (https://siftery.com/extole), Influitive (https://siftery.com/influitive) and Culture Amp (https://siftery.com/culture-amp).
Pulkit Agrawal@_pulkitagrawal · Building Better Onboarding @trychameleon
@bentossell @vammok what would be cool for new companies starting out: add your product idea / customers etc. and get a list of key tools to start with for the relevant functions you'll have (e.g. an on-demand startup may use text messaging solution). You could even hack this together easily using a Typeform (which @trychameleon uses and is on Siftery!). That way you could tap into new startups and stick with them on their journey, and of course it saves a lot of time scrabbling around to find the best tool (which I often do on Product Hunt..!)

@_pulkitagrawal this is a great idea Pulkit! if we'd given you a list of suggested products based on the nature of your business when you were just starting out, what other information would've made you trust this as good for you?
Pulkit Agrawal@_pulkitagrawal · Building Better Onboarding @trychameleon
@vammok well i assume i would have found Siftery first, because it was credible in this space and offered this service, and even if I did some of my own research afterwards, I can see it being a valuable service
Sam Doshi@samir_doshi · Co Founder @ Relayo.com
@kwdinc cool thing about this is the instant context that it provides.. these days with the TMI overload that exists --- it's the curated web that allows us to make decisions --- curious how this will play out as the world get more and more complicated and curated sites themselves will need to be curated exponentially!
Chris Duell@duellsy · Co-Founder, @elevioapp
This is a seriously cool product, I'm amazed how many tools are in the system, I'm not even sad that you guys are going to beat us to top position today by a mile (we made envisage). You're getting a well deserved response from the community for a fantastic tool. Well done!

@duellsy thanks for the kind words chris. just checked out Envisage, cool product. we're actually evaluating one like it right now!

@duellsy we have Envisage/Elevio's profile here: https://siftery.com/elevio. add a few customers so it gets discovered?
Chris Duell@duellsy · Co-Founder, @elevioapp
@vammok envisage is actually a tool that is part of elevio, so elevio is the main product
Ryan Hoover@rrhoover · Founder, Product Hunt
I understand why you're doing this but as a user it's frustrating to visit a site with an immediate email paywall:
Vamshi Mokshagundam
Maker
@vammok · Cofounder, Siftery
@rrhoover this is something that was very hotly debated internally. we ended up deciding on the login wall to make sure that our early users feel that they're participating in a two-way community, with every user investing at least a little. there are other parts of the site that are open though (groups, categories) and we plan to slowly open up as user group matures.
Joost Schuur@joostschuur · Platform Evangelist, Playmob
@vammok @rrhoover I was annoyed when I first saw this, but honestly, hearing that this was actually 'hotly debated' and that you still chose to go this route makes me even more disappointed. I would never link anyone to one of your pages if they knew they were greeted this way.
Auren Hoffman

@auren · fmr CEO of LiveRamp
@rrhoover the main goal of Siftery is to get product recommendations. and Siftery recommends products based on your stack. so we want to know what company a user is in so we can give them personalized product recommendations. of course, come to think of it, we might want to rethink the login wall on this page -- you make a good point. see our groups page (no login): https://siftery.com/groups/unicorns
Lex Evan@lexevan
building on @rrhoover, I'm even more hesitant to sign up with my work email.
Patrick Wang@junesix · accounts, livefyre
@vammok @rrhoover Understand the rationale but I think at least showing teaser data is worthwhile before the login wall. "Login to see the other 14 products used by PH"
