BarkBuilder 4.0 Comparison Matrix

We frequently get asked: "What's the difference between you and _________?" As such, we thought it would be relevant to create a comparison matrix to help you understand the differences between BarkBuilder and other services in the marketplace.

This comparison was established using the information provided on each vendor's website, and is based on each company's best package and "out-of-the-box" service. We do want to make it very clear that ALL of these services are very capable tools, and they all have different strengths and weaknesses (including ours).

If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.
