Top 8 Alternatives to Blissfully

While Blissfully is a good SaaS management tool, it’s not the best for every company. 

It has some drawbacks—its app discovery is not the best, has few direct integrations, doesn't offer custom integrations, and is expensive.

In this article, we'll discuss the 8 best alternatives for Blissfully. 

Here is the list of alternatives that we will be focusing on:

  1. Zluri

  2. BetterCloud

  3. Augmentt

  4. Torii

  5. Applogie

  6. Zylo

  7. Coreview

  8. Productiv

But before delving into the alternatives, let's know a bit more about Blissfully.

What is Blissfully?

Blissfully is a SaaS management platform that offers tools to manage SaaS apps used across your organization. It gives you visibility of the free and paid SaaS applications used by your employees. 

Key Features 

It discovers SaaS apps used in your organization. You also get insights on SaaS spending, usage, and security.

  • Help automate employee onboarding and offboarding process.

  • Tracks your software spending and usage data to know if you're getting value from your apps.

  • Has all the compliance information of apps.

  • Acts as a system of record for SaaS apps. 

  • Information such as the software used, its owner,  and vendors

Blissfully Drawbacks

  • Ineffective SaaS Discovery: App discovery is the main element of a SaaS management tool. But Blissfully's app discovery engine is just 63% effective, i.e., it leaves out a few applications. There are many tools in the market that do it with utmost precision in a matter of minutes.

  • UI Errors: While doing multiple tasks on its dashboard, the app crashes or slows down. For example, if you want to toggle through different departments and tasks, each click loads a new page, slowing down the progress. 

  • Creates Issues if You Pay in Multiple Currency: If you make transactions in multiple currencies, Blissfully it distorts the spend data and the insights. It only has the native $. Your spend details will be displayed in $, and when during currency conversion, there may be some discrepancy. Conversions are all done per transaction or invoice level.

  • Few Direct Integration: The number of apps Blissfully can directly integrate with is approx. 50. So if you want to know the fine details like feature usage and adoption, it is limited to very few applications. 

  • Smaller Application Library Size: The number of applications that Blissfully can discover is around 60000. So if yours is an enterprise having a large number of employees using hundreds and thousands of applications, or you use some niche apps, then Blissfully may not be able to identify them.
