The G2 Grids and Report Methodology

The G2 Grids measure customer satisfaction and market presence with ratings that are generated based on user-supplied product reviews and market presence data. This data is used to plot the featured products on a quadrant with four sections: Leaders, High Performers, Contenders, and Niche.

The G2 Momentum grids are similar to the G2 Grids, but measure a company’s yearly trajectory, using elements such as employee growth, review growth, and social growth.

The Momentum grids enable buyers to gain insight into products that may be outpacing their competition by delivering innovative solutions that are consistently evolving to meet the changing needs of their users.

To create their grids, G2 applies a unique algorithm to the data to generate a numerical score for customer satisfaction and market presence. on a scale from 0 to 100

According to the G2 Research Scoring Methodologies page, “Each input is normalized by category and segment. This means that scores are relative to other products in the category/segment and may change from segment to segment.”
