Smartlogic, the leader in Semantic AI technology, today announced that it has been recognized as a gold medallist and leader in the 2021 Metadata Management Data Quadrant report from SoftwareReviews, a division of IT research and consulting firm Info-Tech Research Group. The award is based on the collective knowledge of real users and placement is determined by customer satisfaction with product features, vendor experience, capabilities, and emotional sentiment.

SoftwareReviews named Smartlogic a Gold Medalist with a 9.3 composite score, which represents the complete and aggregated satisfaction score from end-users. Business Value Created and Vendor Support were two of the strongest capabilities associated with Smartlogic resulting in a 100% plan to renew. Smartlogic secured the top satisfaction scores in a variety of areas representing vendor capabilities and product features including:

  • Availability and Quality of Training
  • Satisfaction that Cost is Fair Relative to Value
  • Usability and Intuitiveness

Smartlogic received an Emotional Footprint score of +98, with top scores around transparency, fairness, and enabling productivity. Emotional Footprint Metrics in which Smartlogic ranked highly include:

  • Clients Friendly Policies
  • Performance Enhancing
  • Saving Time

The Emotional Footprint makes the SoftwareReviews Data Quadrant unique as it is the inclusion of aggregated emotional response ratings in the areas of service, negotiation, product impact, conflict resolution, and strategy and innovation. This creates a powerful indicator of the overall user feeling toward the vendor and its product from the software users’ point of view.

“We’re excited to be positioned as a gold medallist and leader in the 2021 Metadata Management Data Quadrant report from SoftwareReviews. Our customer’s positive ranking in the vendor capabilities, product features, likely to recommend, and vendor experience is indeed high praise.
