GetApp, the largest cloud-based business apps marketplace, has released its Q1 ranking of the top 25 CRM (Customer Relationship Management) apps. Topping the list is Pipeliner.
Unique to GetApp, the ranking was determined using objective data collected from GetApp and other third-party sources. The factors used to calculate an app’s ranking include User Reviews, Integrations, Mobile Platforms, Media Presence, and Security. The ranking will be updated every quarter to reflect new data.
The goal of the ranking is to provide valuable data to businesses looking to make a first assessment when choosing a cloud-based CRM software.
“The CRM marketplace has become very crowded. With this ranking, we’re hoping to make the process of finding a CRM solution a lot easier for businesses. By providing impartial and comprehensive data considering multiple factors, business owners and decision makers can get an overall picture of the leading cloud-based software applications in CRM,” says GetApp CEO and co-founder Christophe Primault.
A range of data points is what makes GetApp’s ranking unique in the industry. User reviews and integrations were considered based on data listed on GetApp, while security scores were calculated using vendor responses to a comprehensive security survey based on the Cloud Security Alliance Self-Assessment Form. Mobile platform data was pulled from the Google Play and Apple app stores, while Media Presence was calculated using data collected from social media monitoring tool Brandwatch.
Along with the ranking, GetApp has released a research report signalling Q1 trends in CRM, along with two other categories ranked this quarter, Customer Service and Call Center. The report includes insights from industry experts including Customer Service and Experience Expert Shep Hyken, Co-founder and Partner of SMB Group Laurie McCabe, and President and Principal Analyst of COMMfusion, Blair Pleasant.
