What makes the SoftwareReviews Data Quadrant different?   
The study involves gathering intelligence on user satisfaction with both product features and the experience with the vendor. Aggregated emotional response ratings are included in the areas of service, negotiation, product impact, conflict resolution, and strategy and innovation to create a powerful indicator of overall user feeling toward the vendor and its product – all from the software users’ point of view. SoftwareReviews calls this insight the Net Emotional Footprint.  
Intercom, with a Net Emotional Footprint of +97, scored top product in many areas, exceeding user expectations in wayfinding. Mindsay, with a Net Emotional Footprint of +96, ranked strongly on vendor support. Birdeye Interactions, with a Net Emotional Footprint of +92, excelled in leads generation. Ada, with a Net Emotional Footprint of +94, excelled in ease of IT implementation. 
In general, Virtual Assistants & Chatbots users were most satisfied with features allowing users to create knowledgebase articles, metadata tags, and creation data and author’s name – and were most dissatisfied with the lack of features for integration with CRM.
