BI software vendors can now use an independent platform to demonstrate their popularity and reviews to prospective buyers, with the addition of the BI software category to CrowdReviews.com, a platform that ranks more than 500 software categories in addition to more than 200 service categories.
CrowdReviews.com, based in New Mexico, is currently inviting BI software vendors to ask their customers to write reviews of their products on the website. At time of writing, the beta version of the site listed 100 products in the BI category, all with rankings labelled “coming soon”.
Rankings will be determined by an algorithm that takes into consideration various criteria including those relating to the strength of a review, strength of a reviewer, aggregate sentiment of reviews, strength of a company profile and “verified status” of a company.
“We give a substantial advantage to those companies that are willing to be transparent and honest about their credentials,” reads the website, requesting a company verify its status by filling out their key fact sheet and providing a letter of verification from a CPA, CFP, CFA, CMA or an attorney.
