Who are G2 and why are peer reviews critical?

G2 is one of the largest and most trusted software marketplaces. More than 80 million people annually, including employees at all Fortune 500 companies, use G2 on a regular basis to help them make smarter software decisions that are based upon authentic peer reviews from users just like you.

Peer reviews are a great way for prospective customers, and even existing customers, to compare products and develop a better understanding for how those products will fit within their own ecosystem. This is made possible by real people, real discussions, and real reviews.

Consolidating the insights from peer reviews also enables us to see how Simcenter’s portfolio is performing against other solutions in the market, and it helps us to gain insights that we might not have otherwise obtained through our own communication channels.
