Xref has been named a Best Software company in Australia and New Zealand by G2. The list, released overnight, ranks the Top 25 Best Software companies in Australia and New Zealand for 2023.

Xref has ranked on this list for three years running. This award reflects Xref’s commitment to continue growing and improving our platform and listening to our customers’ feedback.

Decided by software buyers on the world’s largest and most trusted software marketplace, the Best Software Awards showcase the best software for anything and everything your organisation wants to accomplish.

Quote about being named best software company for three consecutive years

When asked about the win, Xref’s Group General Manager - Revenue, Sarah Mulvenna said,

“It’s very exciting to be named as a Best Software Company across Australia and New Zealand for one year, but three consecutive years is extra special. We are honoured that our customers have such a positive experience using Xref throughout their talent journey.
Many excellent software providers out there help people save time and reduce administration. With Xref supporting the niche needs of the HR industry, we can help our customers gain valuable feedback in the form of data and actionable insights to recruit, retain and remember their talent.” 

Karina Guerra, Xref’s General Manager of Customer Intelligence and Marketing shared her thoughts.

It's an honour to be listed along with companies such as Atlassian, Canva, Xero and others who have revolutionised the way their respective industries work, just as Xref has done in the HR space.

The Best Software Award is in addition to our recent Winter 2023 results, where Xref took home eight badges including; Leader, Best Usability, Best Results and Best Relationship. Keep an eye out for our G2 Spring 2023 results, released early April!

“I like that you can customize your questions on Xref.

It also helps keep track of the references and verifications in one place.” - Brittany D.
