So what does that actually mean, being category leader?
Owned by American research and advisory firm Gartner; GetApp is a directory site that enables people to discover, compare, and ultimately select the ‘right’ software for one’s business. Put simply, GetApp can be seen as the premier app store for today’s modern business to find the most suitable software. Every quarter, GetApp publishes a comprehensive list that summarises the best software in a particular industry, or ‘category’ if you will.
So how does it work exactly?
The category leaders are determined by five key factors that businesses should always look out for on the hunt for potential business software:
- Mobile compatibility
- The number of Facebook & Twitter fans
GetApp then ranks all the software vendors in a particular category, based on these five data points. Each vendor’s score is independent of commercial interests and existing relationships that GetApp has with app vendors.
