Jan 29th, 2019

Progress (NASDAQ: PRGS), the leading provider of application development and digital experience technologies, has announced it has been named a 2019 winner of G2 Crowd’s annual Best Software Awards. The Best Software Awards provide a definitive ranking of the best software products worldwide, as rated by users.

Progress has been given the distinct honour of having two of its technologies included in the 2019 top 100 ranking. Progress Telerik Fiddler, the popular web debugging tool, ranked 7th and Progress Kendo UI, the most complete UI library for data-rich web applications, ranked 69th.

G2 Crowd compiled the list using data collected from over 270,000 authentic customer reviews written between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2018. Reviews spanned across nearly 60,000 software products, with each user-submitted review vetted by an individual person, not a machine, to ensure legitimacy.

Tech companies on the list are selected with data provided by their software users. With more than 45,000 software companies on G2 Crowd, Progress’ recognition on the prestigious Best Software Products 2019 list is an exceptional achievement, and one that can only be earned through the endorsement of its users.

“There is nothing better than user feedback and knowing that two Progress products came in at the top of the list of nearly 60,000 products reviewed is a huge honour,” said Faris Sweis, SVP & General Manager Developer Tooling Business, Progress. “We are 100% committed to our users and to see this outcome from our energy and investment is so rewarding. We couldn’t be more motivated to continue our commitment to offer the best platform and tools for customers to build amazing modern apps, quickly and easily.”

“The best thing about this award is that it is a definitive view by actual users, not just the opinion of a few industry watchers,” said Godard Abel, CEO at G2 Crowd. “With our high level of traffic and engagement and extensive set of products for review, G2 Crowd is able to harness more than ten million data points to determine which products and companies are doing the best job of helping businesses and developers reach their potential.”
