SLMA Comments:   The following is taken directly from G2 Crowd’s explanation of how the grid and scoring is determined.   The reality is this report reflects the opinions of real users and not a simple analysts opinion.   While some consider CRM a me-too commodity software application, Workbooks CRM, a UK based company, seems to separate itself from the pack by its noticeable first place scoring in a majority of the 41 categorizes measured, awhile keeping its pricing at below market value as compared to ten out of eleven competitors. 

Grid® Methodology Grid® Rating Methodology.  

The Grid® represents the democratic voice of real software users, rather than the subjective opinion of one analyst. G2 Crowd rates products from the CRM category algorithmically based on data sourced from product reviews shared by G2 Crowd users and data aggregated from online sources and social networks. Technology buyers can use the Grid® to help them quickly select the best products for their businesses and to find peers with similar experiences. For vendors, media, investors, and analysts, the Grid® provides benchmarks for product comparison and market trend analysis.

Grid® Scoring Methodology G2 Crowd rates products and vendors based on reviews gathered from our user community, as well as data aggregated from online sources and social networks. We apply a unique algorithm (v3.0) to this data to calculate the Satisfaction and Market Presence scores in real time. The Grid® Report for CRM | Summer 2018 is based off of scores calculated using the G2 Crowd algorithm v3.0 from reviews collected up until June 06, 2018. To view the CRM Grid® with the most recent data, please visit the CRM page.
