GetApp's quarterly ranking showcases the top 25 Billing & Invoicing apps based in the cloud. Each app is scored using five factors, worth 20 points each, for a total possible score out of 100. These factors include user reviews, integrations, mobile app availability, media presence, and security. Each app's score is independent of commercial interests and existing relationships that GetApp has with app vendors. BillQuick, the powerful integrated solution for time and expense tracking, billing, project management, and accounting, is listed in the top 15!

How Scores are Calculated

GetApp’s Category Leader rankings showcase the top cloud-based business apps for 27 different product categories including project portfolio management, accounting, project management, and marketing. Whether it’s a first-time software buyer or a business looking to make the switch from one product to another, Category Leaders gives a comprehensive list of the top solutions using a unique, five-factor scoring methodology.

Each factor is worth a maximum of 20 points, for a total potential score out of 100.

  1. User reviews– based on the number, average rating, and recency of reviews
  2. Integrations– based on native integrations listed on GetApp  the availability of an API, and Zapier integration
  3. Mobile– based on the availability and rating (from Google Play and App store) of an Android and iOS app, or the mobile responsiveness of its web app
  4. Media Presence– based on the number of followers on Twitter and fans on Facebook
  5. Security– based on a security survey developed by GetApp, modeled on the Cloud Security Alliance self-assessment form.

This scoring system ensures that the ranking is completely independent of any commercial relationship that GetApp has with software vendors.

Starting in Q1 2017, GetApp added additional components to its scoring methodology to provide even more valuable data to the ranking.

Reviews: Constant software updates mean that reviews don’t have an infinite shelf life. The more recent your product reviews are, the better your score will be. We’ve also incorporated reviews from our sister sites Software Advice and Capterra for even more data.

Integrations: We know that building native integrations with hundreds of apps isn’t always possible, and often times unnecessary. That’s why we’ve added a component to the scoring giving weight to integration with popular integrations platform Zapier, as well as an additional point for having an open API.

Mobile: Not every cloud-based software has a native iOS or Android app, and that’s okay– not every software needs it. But mobile adaptability is still an important component, which is why we’ve added five points for software with a mobile compatible site.

Using this list as a point of reference, software buyers and small business owners can get a good sense of the market landscape for whichever software they are looking for. For the full article for "Billing & Invoicing Category Leaders Q1 2017", please click here.
