The Grid leverages customer satisfaction data reported by authenticated users along with vendor market presence determined from social and public data. Based on a combination of these scores, each software solution is categorized as a Leader, High Performer, Contender or Niche.

Key Findings:

  • Minimal movement – The vendors represented on the ECM Grid℠ generally maintained their positions in their respective quadrants since the Winter 2016 report, except for two major changes. Additionally, only one new product appeared on the Grid℠ for the first time. For further details, visit the Grid℠ Changes section of the ECM report.
  • Patience in implementation – ECM products on the Grid℠ took an average of 5 months to implement into company operations, according to reviewers. This reflects a significant investment of time and resources during setup. On average, only 72 percent of reviewers were satisfied with the ease of setting up their ECM solution. The category-high rating for ease of setup was 81 percent.
  • Lack of small businesses – Only 14 percent of reviewers surveyed for products on the Grid℠ work at small businesses (50 employees or fewer). Furthermore, small business users made up the majority of reviewers for only one product, demonstrating a lack of use for ECM products among small businesses.
