2020 was a truly challenging year for many of us as a lot of us (if not all of us) had to adapt to the new realities and conditions. The global pandemic has influenced everyone’s life, no matter the place we live or work. A lot of companies had to figure out how to make their business thrive remotely. Social distancing forced us to move all the interactions online, such as business meetings, education, even “evenings out” with friends via Zoom or Google Meet calls.

Well, worry no more as we have the right solution for you. In fact, we do not have the right solution. We have the best one for you. This solution, a customer service software by LiveAgent, has been named leader in several key categories for the past and upcoming year. Curious which ones? Continue reading on…

The first criterion is that the software serves users from North America. This is evaluated based on the end-user reviews from that region.

Moreover, to be eligible, the product has to represent a relevant solution in variable industries. Last, but not least, it needs to have at least 20 unique reviews for the last two years.
GetApp is an unbiased platform, where the scores are based on the end-user experience and their reviews. In regards to scoring;
- New ratings are more valued as opposed to older ones.
- There is a maximum of 20 points, which translates into a max score of 100.
- Ratings are translated into 5-point scales.
- Products with more ratings are favored.
- In case there are products with the same total score, the winners are listed in alphabetical order.
- The reviews are only from the end-users.
- Average user ratings are calculated for each dimension, such as ease of use, value for money, recommendation, etc.
