March SaaSness is back. Meet the 64 companies competing in the 4th annual Tournament to decide the King of SaaS.
Ambition, Qualtrics, Prezi and DiscoverOrg are proud to bring you the 2018 March SaaSness Tournament. In March SaaSness, 64 of the world’s most innovative software-as-a-service (SaaS) companies duke it out in matchups decided by popular vote.
Members of March SaaSness squads are more likely to code widgets than cut to the basket, and to pivot strategies instead of feet, but inside the walls of these 64 companies there’s passion, there’s scrappiness, and there’s an undeniable will to compete that’s worthy of the spirit of the Big Dance.
Last year, over 310,000 people voted to help make DiscoverOrg the 2017 Champion, prevailing over 63 other competitors like Dropbox, Salesforce, Slack, Tableau, and Evernote.
This year, we are officially retiring Tournament candidacy for all prior champions. DiscoverOrg joins the 2018 Tournament as our 4th tournamnt host alongside Prezi and Qualtrics. To our 2015 champion ClearSlide and 2016 champion Zoom, we salute you.

How to Participate
You decide who wins March SaaSness. The winner of every tournament matchup will be determined by popular vote, taken via Qualtrics online survey.
Voting will be open to the general public from 12am EST - 11:59pm EST on the day of each matchup. The company with the most votes at 11:59pm EST will win the matchup and advance to the next round.
You'll be able to find the surveys at Tournament Central and on Ambition, Prezi, DiscoverOrg, and Qualtrics's twitter feeds. On each day of competition, Ambition and Qualtrics will release a link to a Qualtrics online survey via social media (Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook) that will allow you to vote on each matchups scheduled for that day. Only one vote per person is allotted.
After voting closes each day, we will announce the winner of the day’s matchups over Twitter. The following day, we’ll update the bracket after each round and publish the results on the Ambition Blog. When posting about the tournament, use hashtag #marchsaasness.
