Our second annual SaaS buying trends report, sharing what we’ve learned from saving our customers over $240M in SaaS spend — and what we anticipate 2023 will bring.

A year of turbulence and transformation

Two years after COVID’s arrival, we’re settling into the “new normal.” The shift toward remote work in 2020 is now the preference for many people. Remote and hybrid work is here to stay, so HR and IT teams have been busy making it happen. Digital transformation, once a long-term objective, is now a top priority.

The global economic outlook continues to change rapidly, even after the pandemic phase of COVID. Organizations finding their footing after stay-at-home orders and efforts to grow post-pandemic are now preparing for a new challenge: a looming recession. They’re down-shifting from growth mode into cash preservation, resulting in more changes for SaaS buying.
