Commentary on GetApp’s ‘Category Leader’ ranking for Q4

GetApp’s Category Leader rankings highlight the top 25 cloud-based business applications for every essential business operation, from HR to marketing automation and sales management.

The ranking uses five unique data points to assess apps, giving software buyers a shortlist of some of the top cloud-based solutions for their growing business.

GetApp ranks apps for Category Leaders based on the following criteria:

User reviews – the number and average rating of reviews on GetApp.

Integrations – the number of integrations with other apps listed on GetApp.

Mobile Platforms – the availability of an Android and iOS app and its rating in Google Play and the App Store, respectively.

Media Presence – the number of followers and fans on Twitter and Facebook, respectively.

Security – based on a security survey developed by GetApp, modeled on the Cloud Security Alliance self-assessment form.

With a maximum high score of 100 up for grabs, each data point is scored out of 20 and weighted equally.

If two or more apps have the same score, higher security scores take precedence, followed by reviews, integrations, mobile, and media scores.

This scoring system ensures that the ranking is completely independent of any commercial relationship that GetApp has with software vendors.

High user opinion, the ability to function well with other software solutions, availability on mobile, a strong online presence, and a high level of security reflect applications that are reliable and well-respected in the market.
