Global business reviews and ranking platform Clutch has named Accelerance as one of the world's top 1% rated B2B IT service companies in the world, with additional honors across a range of specialized technology categories.
Clutch, the leading global marketplace of more than 150,000 B2B service providers, gave Accelerance its most prestigious annual Clutch Global Top 1000 award for 2022. This exclusive list of the world’s top 1,000 service providers, heavily based on client experience feedback, represents only 1% of companies on the platform.
Accelerance placed high on the list, ranking at 54 out of the select 1,000 firms.
The recipients for Clutch’s highest honor are chosen for their industry expertise and track record in providing exceptional customer service and producing high-quality results for clients. Accelerance has consistently received highest client feedback, achieving a perfect 5.0 out of 5.0 overall score on Clutch.
The Clutch global award is based on four key criteria:
- Number, quality and recency of verified Clutch reviews
- Selection of clientele and portfolio of work
- Robust company profile with competitive specializations and experience
- Strong brand awareness and industry recognition
“The Clutch awards send a clear message to the market: With extensive verified positive reviews, a robust portfolio of existing clients, and our deep experience across a wide range of tech specializations, Accelerance is an ideal advisor for companies looking to work with the new norm of high-performing, globally-distributed software development teams,” says Andy Hilliard, CEO of Accelerance.
Finding the Right Expertise
Accelerance’s recognition as a premier service provider is timely. Western businesses are struggling to find IT service partners able to help them through an ongoing battle to secure software development talent in a tight technology labor market, coupled with record cost pressures from inflation and interest rate increases.
“This award captures our clients’ experience with us at a critical time in our industry,” Hillard notes. “With painful developer talent shortages, and challenges in understanding how to best integrate and leverage remote teams, we’re thrilled to be acknowledged as a quality solution to these problems.”
Besides the Clutch top award, Accelerance also scored skills specific awards in categories from Clutch’s sister website, The Manifest, a business news and how-to site.
The Manifest’s Most Reviewed Company Awards feature 15 companies that have received the highest number of new client reviews in the past 12 months in specific technologies. Accelerance was recognized in key technologies and platforms that clients are seeking for digital transformation:
- Internet of Things (IoT)
- Mobile app development
- Artificial intelligence
- Augmented reality/virtual reality (AR/VR)
- Software development
- Web development
- IT services
“Our tech category accolades are a huge endorsement of our ability to help businesses find the right IT outsourcing partners all over the world not only for mature areas of software development but in fast-growing emerging technology categories as well,” Hilliard says.
The Wisdom of the Crowd
At each stage of the customer experience journey, quality B2B reviews and ratings from customers play an increasingly important part in decision making. Independently verified reviews by third parties such as Clutch carry greater weight with clients, underscoring the significance of Accelerance’s Clutch award.
For B2B companies looking to secure high-quality and competitively priced services, trusted review websites are a crucial tool for researching potential partners. After reading positive reviews, 92% of buyers are more likely to purchase a product or service, according to a survey of more than 500 businesses by OnTarget Consulting & Research.
The purchase likelihood for a product with five reviews is 270% greater than the purchase likelihood of a product with no reviews, a study by Northwestern University's Spiegel Research Center found.
A Mark of Industry Leadership
Accelerance has earned prior industry recognition from Clutch. But 2022 marks our first Clutch Top 1000 award based on factors ranging from the recency, number and quality of Clutch-verified reviews published, to services offered, experience providing those services, and visibility in target markets. The awards are grounded in Clutch's organic research and are not affected by a company's sponsorship on the platform.
“Clutch is genuinely thrilled to honor the brilliance of the global leaders in the ever-evolving development and IT services spaces,” says KImmie Champlin, Clutch's director of operations. “The drive and passion you show the world are infectious.”
Accelerance offers solutions for businesses that are increasingly tapping into talent and resources by building tech value networks of partners that can span the globe.
“This is our sweet spot,” Hilliard explains. “We connect companies with the specialist providers they need to progress their IT projects. This client journey often starts on Clutch, where business leaders find the great feedback Accelerance has attracted.”
