We've got some great salespeople, but they aren't the best at selling FloQast. Not by a long shot. That's because again and again, our best salespeople are our customers.

While we’re continually soliciting feedback from our customers to improve our close management software, it’s always a nice surprise to see what they’re saying about us behind our backs. We recently discovered that we’re outranking our competition on G2 by a long shot, and we wanted to share the great news.

G2 is the largest peer-to-peer, business solutions review platform that aggregates user reviews for business software. Reviews are authenticated and can’t be altered by the companies whose products are being reviewed, so many buyers use it to research options.

So what exactly did customers have to say?

FloQast Pays for Itself in 10 Months on AverageClose Management Software Time to Value Return on Investment 2020

On average, FloQast users reported an 10-month payback period. 35% of FloQast users said that their payback period (estimated ROI) was six months or less — which was the fastest time offered as an answer — and, in all, 82% found their estimated ROI to be 12 months or less. In addition to empowering accounting teams to close faster and more accurately, delivering quick ROI is one of the things that gets us most excited.

When compared to our competition, FloQast’s performance set the pace. By comparison, it took 63% of BlackLine users over a year — 38% over two years — to see a return on investment, with 10% of customers stated they never got a full payback. Every single FloQast customer reported they had received value within three years, and we’re proud of that!

Time to go live is another area where FloQast shines. An impressive 71% of users said that they were able to go live in less than a month (there was even a sizable group who said they went live in less than a day). FloQast received a 92% score in the “Ease of Setup” category. We know that our customers’ teams will quickly adopt software that is easy to implement and use.

A long implementation is a costly implementation, and it’s a drain on the accounting team’s enthusiasm for a new application. Our competition, by contrast, only had 5% of customers report that they were able to go live in less than a month. Nearly two-thirds of our competition’s customers took more than three months to go live. As a result, it probably shouldn’t come as a surprise that the competition received only a 75% grade in “Ease of Setup.”

FloQast Users Have a High Level of Satisfaction

Close Management Software Satisfaction

When it comes to overall customer satisfaction, the difference between FloQast and the competition is pretty stark. 

When considering all the customer-experience metrics measured by G2, FloQast earned an average rating of 4.8 out of a possible 5. To help buyers better understand the data it compiles, G2 created the G2 Satisfaction Score. The advanced metric uses an algorithm to factor in user ratings and normalizes each measurement so the score is relative to other products. As a result, FloQast earned an amazing 97 on the G2 Satisfaction Score, in comparison to the competition's 85.

We encourage companies who are considering close management software to learn how our customers are benefiting from FloQast.
