On this occasion, the G2 Spring edition has sprouted more trophies for Screendragon to care for in April. Following on from our success last quarter, we have secured a G2 Leader badge and two High Performer awards. This is in addition to two much-coveted Users Most Likely to Recommend honors, and a set of accolades for the Screendragon product and our celebrated client management team.

Screendragon’s latest awards in the G2 Spring release include:

  2. High Performer – MRM
  3. High Performer – DAM

1. Leader: Resource Management

Screendragon was the proud holder of the exclusive Users Most Likely to Recommend award for Resource Management in the previous G2 release. This time around, Screendragon has earned a prestigious Leader badge for the category! With a score of 4.8 / 5, Screendragon is now among the top 3 scoring resource management platforms on G2.

As a creative operations software provider, we are acutely aware of the importance of utilizing time and talent. Considering this, we’re proud to see how many agencies and creative teams have turned to Screendragon for managing their most precious resources. If you’re one of the 40% of creatives in the market for resource management this year (see our popular Creative Operations Industry Report!), then make sure to book a demo with a resource management leader.

2. High Performer: MRM (Marketing Resource Management)

Continuing the trend of recent G2 releases, Screendragon continues to move upwards in the Marketing Resource Management charts. With Screendragon moving in to the top 6 MRM vendors based on scoring, we have earned a High Performer badge! This means that Screendragon is among the highest rated MRM vendors on the platform.

3. High Performer: DAM (Digital Asset Management)

Although Screendragon is not a thoroughbred DAM vendor, our capabilities in the area have earned recognition in the G2 Spring 2024 release. Screendragon’s exhaustive feature set includes a dedicated functionality for asset management. This includes the ability to store, share, tag, and organise digital assets. Moreover, Screendragon outperformed many native DAM vendors in the Spring release to earn a High Performer badge for the category.

Positive online reviews from Screendragon clients have noted the ability to create brand libraries, apply meta tags, and build knowledge bases for onboarding and training. What’s more, Screendragon offers the ability to easily share content securely with colleagues and partners without leaving the application. If you’re looking for DAM software in 2024 that has no additional capabilities, then Screendragon is probably not for you. However, if you need an end-to-end work management solution that includes fundamental DAM capabilities then Screendragon is the answer.

Work management is Screendragon’s primary category on G2. With 115 vendors listed in the classification, work management is one of the most competitive markets to participate in. As a result, we are very proud to be awarded the exclusive Users Most Likely to Recommend honour for the listing. Only one vendor can possess the ‘Users Most Likely to Recommend’ for each category so we’re thankful for our clients help in securing this prize.

Screendragon’s current Net Promoter Score (NPS) is 9.5 / 10. This means we are co holders of the highest NPS score for work management vendors on G2! If you want to see why so many G2 users recommend Screendragon then check out our G2 profile.
