Spring has sprung which means at G2, our Spring 2023 Reports are now live. If you haven’t checked them out yet, log in to My.G2.com to see for yourself. This season, we produced 12,873 reports featuring 15,020 total products across 1,011 categories.
While G2 reports feature software companies across all segments – small business, mid-market, and enterprise businesses – it’s the enterprises like HubSpot, Microsoft, Google, and UiPath that dominate when we look at the top ranked vendors overall. Notably, across all G2 Spring 2023 reports, enterprise vendors sweep the top 10 spots for software companies with the highest G2 scores and most #1 rankings. Clearly, G2 is a growing home for enterprise software.
Read on for additional highlights – including the software companies and products that show up most often in these reports, which rank the highest and improved the most, as well which categories emerged and grew over the last quarter.
Software Companies and Products on G2 with the Most Spring 2023 Reports
The 10 companies featured in the most G2 reports remain consistent again this quarter. Microsoft also retained its #1 spot, featured in an additional 177 reports this time around for a total of 2,394 reports.
The products appearing in the most reports also mostly maintain their stronghold, with ClickUp keeping its reputation as the product with the most G2 quarterly reports (appearing in 17 additional reports this season). Another update to note is that Datadog has emerged as a new entrant to the top 10.
Companies & Products With Most #1 Rankings and Highest G2 Scores
We already know which companies and products were most popular in our Spring 2023 reports – but which performed the best? Here, we’ll dive into which secured the most #1 rankings and highest G2 scores.
On the vendor side, HubSpot again saw the most #1 report rankings – with the top five holding onto their spots. There were a few placement swaps and GitHub joined the top 10, with 115 #1 report rankings this quarter.
On the product front, HubSpot continues to dominate, with its Marketing Hub and Sales Hub seeing the most #1 rankings in G2 Spring reports, while Glassbox and Birdeye join as new entrants to the top 10.
Let’s also take a look at who ranked best according to G2 score. For background, G2’s research scoring methodologies are based on reviews gathered from our user community, as well as data aggregated from online sources and social networks. We apply a unique algorithm to this data to calculate the customer Satisfaction and Market Presence scores in real time.
UiPath continues to be the company with the highest G2 score as the only vendor with 2+ products coming in over 90. We welcome Instacart, WeTransfer, and Sprout Social to the mix this time on our top 10 software companies by G2 score.
We see quite a bit of shake-up when it comes to the products with the highest G2 scores. There is tight competition with the top 10 all scoring between 97 - 98. Adobe Illustrator moved from 5th place into the 1st spot this quarter and Microsoft Teams entered the top 10, while many other products shifted rank order.
Over the past quarter, many products improved their rankings. Let’s give a shout out to the top 10 making the most drastic improvements, especially to Key Survey: the #1 most improved product across all of G2’s reports.
Some products even improved so much they moved into #1 ranked spots. The greatest improvements are outlined below – with Wiz making significant jumps in at least four different categories, notably from 32nd to first in Cloud Security. And due to some ties, we couldn’t keep this list to just a top 10 either.
From 5th to 1st in Cloud Security Monitoring & Analytics
The Categories Growing and Emerging on G2
At G2, we have the largest dataset available on B2B software. 80 million people visit the G2 software marketplace annually, which features over 2 million reviews on 150,000+ products and services across 2,100 different categories.
After reviewing the software companies and products that stood out across our thousands of Spring 2023 reports, we’ll now dive into which categories emerged and grew the most over the past quarter.
Cloud Security saw the most growth, with 15 products joining the category. Additionally, Employee Engagement made the list for the second quarter in a row as it continues to experience consistent growth (with 21 products added over the last two quarters!). You might notice we couldn’t cap this list just at 10 either, since there were so many ties with multiple categories growing by 10 or 11 products.
Impressively, there were 28 new categories added to G2 over the last quarter, compared to 15 the prior quarter! Our software marketplace just continues to expand, and we look forward to seeing all these categories mature as they collect more products and reviews. Check them out all out below – where you’ll find everything from Digital Business Cards to Pet Grooming software!
