The G2 Crowd Grid for CRM ranks 22 of the best customer relationship management software in 2014. Similar to the “Gartner Magic Quadrant for Sales Force Automation” and “Forrester Wave for CRM Suites,” the G2 Crowd Grid displays top on-premise and cloud CRM systems in a series of quadrants: Leaders, High Performers, Contenders, and Niche Players.

CRM rankings are earned based on high user satisfaction ratings, number of employees, market share, momentum based on traffic and Google search trends, social impact, company revenue, employee satisfaction and engagement, and other scoring metrics.

Enterprise technology buyers, investors, and analysts can use the G2 Crowd Grid and website to research, compare, and help select CRM software based on peer reviews and synthesized social data.

Best CRM software in 2014

  • In the Winter 2014 CRM Grid, there were only two CRM systems that earned Leader positions based on high user satisfaction ratings and their substantial market share and scale: Salesforce CRM and Microsoft Dynamics CRM.
  • The High Performers quadrant consisted of 10 CRM vendors: SugarCRM, Zoho CRM, Nimble, PipelinesDeals, Workbooks CRM, Salesnet CRM, Base CRM, Maximizer CRM, CiviCRM, and WORK[etc].
  • Five CRM products earned spots in the Contenders quadrant of the G2 Crowd Grid: SAP CRM, Siebel CRM, Oracle CRM On Demand, Oracle Sales Cloud (formerly Oracle Fusion CRM), and NetSuite.
  • And the following CRM systems were listed as top Niche Players in the CRM marketplace: Sage CRM, Highrise CRM, Saleslogix, ACT!, GoldMine.

While the G2 Crowd is currently in beta, we can see why the Yelp-like service for enterprise software reviews has been featured in Forbes, TechCrunch, PCWorld, CIO, and Bloomberg Businessweek.
