Workbooks Recognised as #1 CRM for Customer Satisfaction in G2 Crowd’s Spring 2015 report

Type: #PR

Reading, England, 15th June 2015 – Workbooks, one of the fastest growing providers of web-based CRM and business applications, has been recognised as having the highest customer satisfaction rating and rated a high performer by  G2 Crowd, the trusted site for enterprise software reviews. G2 Crowd named Workbooks a High Performer in its Grid for CRM. The Grid by G2 Crowd helps businesses select the best CRM software based on insights aggregated from independent customer reviews and social data.

In G2 Crowd’s Spring 2015 report Workbooks is shown in the G2 CRM Grid Ranking as having the highest Customer Satisfaction ahead of systems such as Salesforce, MS Dynamics, Sugar and Netsuite.

Workbooks achieved High Performer status thanks to the high satisfaction reported by its customers, who became G2 Crowd users and reviewed the Workbooks CRM product. In their reviews, Workbooks customers reported very high satisfaction and ease of use and adoption in comparison to other CRM systems.

John Cheney, CEO at Workbooks, commented, ‘We are pleased at the continuing recognition Workbooks receives from both analysts and awards and our continued high rating from real customers for our ease of use, user adoption and affordability.  We thank our customers for their continued support in rating us as the best CRM for all round customer satisfaction’.

Matt Gorniak, Cofounder and COO at G2 Crowd, commented, ‘Our site gives real users a voice and enables them to share their experiences with enterprise software with peers. This process delays the emergence of more innovative solutions, and buyers might miss newer technologies that could be a better fit. Workbooks is a great example of how G2 Crowd works in real time, giving awareness and visibility to a highly rated CRM that otherwise many customers would not have found to consider.

G2 Crowd provides a trusted resource for the enterprise technology community by authenticating its users through LinkedIn and validating their contributions to ensure that reviews submitted reflect authentic feedback from real software users. G2 Crowd’s founders, during their 15 years in the enterprise software industry, saw the shortcomings and inefficiency in the software selection process, which relies primarily on business users slogging through vendor spin, industry-sponsored white papers and dated analyst reports.

Workbooks has consistently demonstrated a position of innovation and as a challenger to the bigger names of Salesforce and Microsoft Dynamics by winning Network Computing’s CRM Product of the Year 2014 & 2013. Workbooks also is rated by the Gleansight Analyst report on CRM as one of the leaders across four CRM categories: Ease of Use, Ease of Deployment, Features and Functionality and Overall value.’
