Xref’s Reference Checking Platform Continues to Rank as a High Performer



Xref ranks as an Industry High Performer for Fall 2020

We’re thrilled to announce that Xref has once again ranked high on the G2 leaderboards! 

Continuing on from our success last season, Xref has once again been ranked as a high performer in the reference check software market, as identified by real, verified users who have provided their feedback on G2, the business software comparison website. 

G2 is a trusted resource adopted by businesses across the globe to help customers sort through the many offerings and solutions available. This tool helps users to measure brands and products against similar competitors, helping to narrow down the right fit for their individual needs. G2 helps to provide confidence that the final decision is made based on the experiences of customers already using the platform.

Measuring Success‍

The process undertaken by G2 to rate software solutions for each category is unique and complex. It includes an assessment of the reviews provided, as well as aggregated data from online sources and social networks and adopts a unique algorithm to calculate scores for satisfaction and market presence.

‍G2 Badge Success 

In the latest round of award badges, issued by G2 for performance in its Fall Performance Reports, Xref has received a total of nine highly regarded achievements. We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished during what has been a very challenging year for the Globe and we’re very thankful for our users and clients who have taken the time to share their feedback about our services. Below is a brief summary of what each badge that Xref has been awarded means.

What Our Users Are Saying‍

So, what are some of the reviewers saying that have contributed to our success on G2? 

Five green stars

Great resource!

“They [Xref] save me a lot of time. Referees are able to respond to questions when it best suits them. This gives them the opportunity to give thought to their answers. What's also good is that Xref can track if references are legit. We've had cases where candidates have provided false references. Xref was able to determine by IP address that the references provided came from the candidates IP number.”

Five green stars

Convenient, fast and easy.

“If you are looking to verify a number of candidates this is extremely useful. if you are time poor or are needing a quick turnaround time then this is also a great tool to use. It allows candidates to select more than one referee so you can get a strong referral in a short time with little effort. The notifications mean you know where the process is up to and when the referee is complete so you can set and forget.”

Five green stars

Easy to use, saving you time and money!

“Having Xref take care of references allowed me to focus on other impactful initiatives. If you're looking to get leverage on your time, I would highly recommend outsourcing references to Xref!”
