G2 Reveals Best Software Companies for 2021: GoCardless Earns Multiple Spots on Prestigious List

Sponsored by Businesswire

GoCardless, the leading fintech for recurring payments, today announced that it has been recognized as one of G2’s Best Software Companies for 2021. GoCardless placed 17th for Best Software in EMEA and received a #2 ranking in the category of Best Finance Product as part of G2’s annual Best Software Awards. In both cases, GoCardless achieved a rare “Top 50” designation among the companies evaluated by G2.

Akin to The People’s Choice Awards for tech companies, G2’s Best Software Awards rank the world’s best software companies and products based on authentic, timely reviews from real users.

Tech companies on the list have proven their commitment and value based on thousands of verified reviews. “GoCardless is being recognized on both the Best Software and Best Finance Product lists, achievements that can only be earned through the endorsement of users,” said G2 CEO Godard Abel.

G2 created the Best Software and Best Finance Product lists based on data from over 1 million authentic, verified customer reviews. These reviews were written and published between January 1, 2020, and December 31, 2020.

“This isn’t a subjective list based on a few opinions,” explained Abel. “With the highest traffic and engagement, largest selection of products and services, and highest-quality data, G2 analyzes more than 4 million data points to determine which products and companies make the list.”

GoCardless earned its place on the list because GoCardless solutions make it simple to collect recurring and one-off payments from customers worldwide via bank debit schemes, including ACH debit in the US. Designed to support both small businesses and enterprises, GoCardless solutions help improve cash flow and more effectively track payments, while reducing international barriers, decreasing churn conversion risk and failed payments, and helping to achieve lower operational costs while simultaneously enabling businesses to get paid faster.

Andrew “AG” Gilboy, General Manager of North America for GoCardless, said, “We’re thrilled about receiving this honor from G2, because it independently validates the success that our customers have achieved with GoCardless. We’re focused on providing payment solutions that help businesses get paid easily. These customer reviews and this recognition are a validation that we offer a valuable solution and that we’re on the right path.”
