SANTA CRUZ, Calif – January 16, 2019 – Looker, a leading data platform company, today announced it has been recognized in two categories in the 2019 Best Software Awards from the G2 Crowd, the largest business commerce platform. Looker was identified in both the Top 50 Products for Mid-Market, and the Top 50 Fastest Growing Products.
The equivalent of The People’s Choice Awards for tech companies, G2 Crowd’s Best Software Awards provides the definitive ranking of the best software companies and products worldwide. Tech companies on the list are selected with data provided by its software users, and as a result, have proven their commitment to customers and providing technology that delivers. With over 45,000 software companies on G2, Looker’s recognition on both the prestigious Top 50 Products for Mid-Market (#21) list and Top 50 Fastest Growing Products (#27) list is an exceptional achievement and one that can only be earned through the endorsement of its users.
“Our goal is to build a data platform that truly impacts the day-to-day life of our customers by allowing them to easily visualize and understand their data,” said Nick Caldwell, Chief Product Officer at Looker. “This award is particularly meaningful as it’s based on direct feedback from our customers and we are extremely thankful for that recognition. In 2019, you can expect to see continued growth as our platform becomes even more flexible with new applications, features, and integrations that further our mission of delivering data workflows to virtually any business and function.”
Looker is the new Platform for Data that streamlines the data supply chain to put real, actionable information into the hands of all employees across all industries when they need it. It allows any organization to extract value from data at web scale, utilizes powerful department specific plug-and-play applications and empowers a global ecosystem of partners and developers to easily build third-party applications on its platform. This is Looker’s second time earning their title as one of G2’s Best Software winners as the company was listed on both the Top 100 and Top 50 Products for Mid-Market lists in 2018.
G2 Crowd compiled the list using data collected from over 270,000 authentic customer reviews spanning nearly 60,000 software products, with every single review vetted by an individual person, not a machine, to ensure legitimacy.
“This is no subjective list by a few people giving their opinions,” explains Godard Abel, CEO, and co-founder of the G2 Crowd. “With the highest traffic and engagement, largest selection of products and services, and highest quality data, G2 Crowd is able to harness more than 4 million data points to determine which products and companies are doing the best job of helping businesses reach their potential.”
Criteria: Winners were determined based on reviews left at G2Crowd.com between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2018. All scores are calculated using G2’s algorithms, including for Satisfaction and Market Presence, explained in detail here. Further information on methodology is available upon request.
