According to G2 Crowd, selecting business solutions is both hard, risky and inherently biased. But G2 Crowd aims to diminish these risks and eliminate biases by using “real-time” and unbiased data from real business software users capturing the “voice of the customer” as they note on their website.
Vectorworks Architect Earns Top Scores for BIM Packages
Vectorworks, Inc., has announced that their namesake BIM package, Vectorworks Architect, was ranked the second in the “Highest Rated” and “Easiest to Use” categories for Building Design and Building Information Modeling (BIM) software. Vectorworks Architect received a 92 percent satisfaction score and an 8.5 usability score.
Business to Business (B2) IT services provider, G2 Crowd has proprietary and algorithmic controlled process (G2 Grid and Index Report) that enables it to provide independent software satisfaction analysis and reports for end customers. Vectorworks Architect has out-ranked all other BIM software offerings (in Highest Satisfaction and Ease of Use) in this analysis other than SketchUp, which isn’t a true BIM software program.
Based on G2 Crowd, their unique product satisfaction and usability scores are calculated from a proprietary algorithm that factors in real-user satisfaction ratings from the review data. All of the leading BIM products in the G2 Grid and Index Report were reviewed by approximately 100 or more real users. G2 Crowd verifies the users are real people and real end-users of the software.
“Rankings on G2 Crowd reports are based on data provided to us by real users,” said Michael Fauscette, chief research officer at G2 Crowd. “We are excited to share the achievements of the products ranked on our site because they represent the voice of the user and offer terrific insights to potential buyers around the world.”
Ease of Use Metric
Based on the data at G2 Crowd, Vectorworks Architect scored an 8.5 in Easiest to Use category for Building Design and BIM Software. The study combines both categories of software and hence, tools like pure CAD programs (eg: AutoCAD) or 3D modeling programs (eg: SketchUp) get mixed into the BIM tools. Vectorworks Architect out-ranked all other leading true BIM tools in this metric.
Highest Rated Metric
