The award is based on the collective knowledge of real users, and placement is based on satisfaction with product features, vendor experience, capabilities, and emotional sentiment.

SoftwareReviews named Field Effect Covalence a gold medalist as it received a 9.5/10 composite score, which represents the complete and aggregated satisfaction score from end users. Business Value Created, Quality of Features, Vendor Support, Ease of Administration and Ease of Implementation were amongst the strongest capabilities associated with Field Effect Covalence, resulting in a 100% Plan to Renew reported by their users.

Field Effect Covalence also received a high Emotional Footprint score of +99, receiving high scores around enabling productivity, enhancing performance, and saving time from a service and product experience perspective.

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

“We are thrilled to see these positive reviews from our clients," said Matt Holland, the Co-Founder, CEO, and CTO at Field Effect.
