Xref’s Reference Checking Platform Ranks as a High Performer



Xref voted as a High Performer for Summer 2020

Continuing on from our success last season, Xref has once again been ranked high on the leaderboard 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.

‍G2 Badge Success 

In the latest round of award badges, issued by G2 for performance in it’s Summer Grid Reports, Xref is once again delighted to have been identified as a High Performer in the Reference Check category and a High Performer for both mid-market and enterprise users in the Pre-Employment Screening category. 

Of course, our favourite badge which we have also been awarded with again for the season is the Users Love Us reward, measured by the volume of reviews received that award us four or more stars overall. We’re thrilled to receive such positive recognition as we will always continue to strive towards providing a product that our users truly love. We’re very grateful for our clients who provide us with very honest feedback and are constantly helping to shape a product that fits seamlessly within their recruitment process.

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.

When it comes to reviewing software performance by segment size, the review data is used only from reviewers who are employed by a company within a particular segment, against the following definitions: 

  • Small-Business: a company with 50 or fewer employees
  • Mid-Market: a company with 51–1,000 employees
  • Enterprise: a company with 1,001+ employee

A Commitment to High Standards 

We continue to work hard to ensure that both our platform and team offer clients the best possible experience, ensuring: 

  • Ease and speed - while this has become somewhat of a hygiene factor for successful software platforms, we are proud to offer users a solution that allows them to request a reference in 30 seconds and see the results returned in as little as 24 hours. 
  • Compliance and governance - Xref is certified by the world’s highest global standard for data security. Xref is ISO 27001 certified and offers globally compliant data collection and storage. It meets all regulatory requirements, to ensure every candidate is assessed fairly. 
  • Value & trust - We are trusted by more than 1,200 businesses globally and offer a reliable tech solution with dedicated account managers and local support. Xref’s an enterprise-ready solution that scales with businesses as they grow. 
  • Fraud detection - Our platform detected more than 7,000 cases of potential fraud in one 12 month period. Xref's unique fraud algorithm monitors for unusual activity during a reference and raises a red flag if anything potentially fraudulent is detected. 
  • Relevant & valuable insights - We offer candidate assessment at a glance, delivering relevant data analytics to inform great recruitment decisions with tailored and comparable insights, perfect for candidate benchmarking.
