Digital Commerce Provider Earned Strong Customer Satisfaction Marks

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwired - June 30, 2016) - Avangate, the modern digital commerce solution provider trusted by thousands of software, SaaS and online services companies to grow their businesses worldwide, today announced that it was named a "High Performer" in the Spring 2016 G2 Crowd E-Commerce Platform Software Grid(SM), published on June 16, 2016.

Avangate's industry presence and positive customer ratings, with 96 percent of users rating it 4 or 5 stars, combined to keep the company in the "High Performer" quadrant of the G2 Crowd Grid for the second consecutive year. The grid evaluated 21 products out of the 129 listed in the E-Commerce Platform category and is based on more than 590 customer reviews. Each ranked product needed ten or more reviews to qualify for inclusion.

Third-party review sites are gaining traction as business professionals look for objective, peer-to-peer reviews on the software and services they are using. According to G2 Crowd, reviewers are more likely to recommend products with a quality of support rating of 85 percent or higher than products below that mark.

"We are extremely proud of our rating as High Performers in the G2 Crowd E-Commerce Platform grid, especially as it reflects the high level of satisfaction our clients get from the Avangate service and the strength of our platform," said Erich Litch, Avangate's Chief Revenue Officer.

"G2 Crowd's recent E-Commerce Platform Software report features Avangate as a high performer on the Grid," said Marty Duffy, Director of Research for G2 Crowd. "Eighty-eight percent of users indicate that they believe Avangate is headed in the right direction and identify their supported languages and currencies, as well as their affiliate program, as highlights of the product. These professionals recommend Avangate to potential users because of the software's support for digital sales. Overall, reviewers said they would be likely to recommend Avangate at a rate of 91 percent".
