Slack Tops G2 Crowd’s List of Best Software Companies 2018

The Annual List Features the 100 Business Software Companies That Best Met Customer Needs In 2017, Based on G2 Crowd’s Verified User Reviews and Publicly Available Market Presence Data

It’s the SuperBowl of software. G2 Crowd, the world’s leading business solution review platform, announced their annual list of Best Software Companies 2018.

The list highlights the 100 best software companies, based on the most important metric: the voice of customers. Unlike other company awards, there is no self-nomination process and no costs involved.

Best Software Companies 2018 features the 100 business software companies that best met customer needs in 2017, based on G2 Crowd’s verified user reviews and publicly available market presence data. The list is also segmented into the 50 Best Small-Business (1-50 employees), Mid-Market (51-1,000 employees) and Enterprise Software Companies (1,001+ employees).

Winners are determined based on feedback provided by those who really know a software company best – their customers. Users must have shared at least 100 reviews on the company’s products on G2 Crowd in a year.

Companies are scored based on an algorithm using factors included in the Grid Scoring Methodology. This is a combination of satisfaction and market presence score algorithms, but weighted differently to reflect vendors’ success over the past year.

And the winners are;
