About G2 Crowd

The leading independent software review platform on the web.

After spending years in the enterprise software industry, we saw glaring problems in how business technology was bought and sold. There was nowhere to turn for real, unbiased feedback or for advice from people who had actually implemented and used the software and related services.

We started G2 Crowd to be a trusted source of business software reviews from real users. We launched the Beta version of our site in February 2013. Since then, we have collected more than 30,000 reviews of more than 8,500 products across several hundred categories, and nearly a million total answers to the questions software buyers care about most, making G2 Crowd the clear leader in the space.

Transparent, unbiased software recommendations from your peers.

•   We verify that reviewers are real business professionals, and no one can review their own product or that of a competitor, eliminating bias.
