Before you head out on your summer vacations, don’t forget to pack the flip flops, sunscreen, and a good beach read: G2’s Summer 2023 Reports. Released just last week, all 13,368 reports featuring 15,525 total products and 1,035 categories can be viewed by logging into my.G2.com.
As G2’s recent algorithm changes went live on the Grid® on April 25, the Summer 2023 G2 Grid® reports are the first to reflect these changes. As a refresher, G2 Score is the calculated average of two other proprietary scores: Market Satisfaction + Market Presence. Market Satisfaction has been improved to prioritize review recency, quality, and source, while Market Presence now includes ZoomInfo as an additional data source for a more holistic view of employee count and growth. These changes aim to provide buyers with more relevant information and yield more accurate reflections about vendors on G2.
With that said, let’s dive into our quarterly look at the ‘who’s who’ in G2 Reports: 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 & Products on G2 with the Most Reports: Enterprise Vendors Continue to Reign
The 10 companies featured in the most G2 reports remain the same with a few swaps in the order. Notably, Microsoft retains its #1 spot, featured in an additional 93 reports this quarter.
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 19 additional reports this season). While HubSpot’s Sales Hub continues its top 10 ranking, its Marketing Hub also joins the list this season.
On the product front, Glassbox moves from seventh into first, as the product with with the most #1 report rankings this season. New entrants to the top 10 include: Google Workspace, Zendesk Support Suite, and NinjaOne.
Let’s also take a look at who ranked best according to G2 Score. Instacart moves from fourth to first, as Sprout Social shifts from 10th to fourth. Three vendors new to the list from last season include: Siemens Digital Industries Software, Smartsheet, and monday.com.
We continue to see some shake-up when it comes to the products with the highest G2 scores. Half of the top 10 (including the top two) are new this season: Relias Learning Management, Microsoft SharePoint, Visual Studio Code, Google Classroom, and Shopify.
Over the past quarter, many products improved their report rankings. Let’s give a shout out to those making the most drastic improvements, starting with Simcenter STAR-CCM+, which saw a 97% change from 39th to 1st in the Simulation & CAE category report.
Some products even improved so much they moved into #1 rankings. The greatest improvements are outlined below – Simcenter STAR-CCM+ taking the #1 spot here as well, with Microsoft Bing Web Search API and Internet Information Services for Windows Server also making significant leaps to #1 from rankings in the 30s. We’ve featured a top 11 list to reflect the tie for 10th.
After reviewing the software companies and products that stood out across our thousands of Summer 2023 reports, we’re also taking a look at trends among categories on G2 over the past quarter. It’s worth noting that we have over 2,000 categories on G2. They’re constantly growing with new products added, as new categories emerge as well.
We couldn't cap this list at just 10 since we had some ties. Video Conferencing was the category experiencing the most growth in terms of products added – with 19 new products joining that category over the last quarter. Cloud Security and Employee Engagement see consistent growth, appearing on the list again from last quarter.
There were 19 new categories added to G2 over the last quarter – including some focused on services, such as IBM and ServiceNow implementers & consultants. As these categories continue to grow, expect to see them show up in future G2 Reports!
