TrustRadius Top Rated Awards: Announcing New Category Schedule With 2019 Criteria

May 28th, 2019

Since 2016, the TrustRadius Top Rated Awards have driven the industry standard for unbiased recognition of the best B2B technology products. Based entirely on customer feedback, they have never been influenced by analyst opinion or status as a TrustRadius customer.

Today, we will be extending our Top Rated Award program to include even more categories than ever before! We are excited to recognize the top products in these categories based entirely on customer feedback on TrustRadius.

The 2019 awards criteria now consist of three key data points:

  • Recency. Products must have 10 or more new or updated reviews in the past 12 months.
  • Relevancy. In addition to being on the category TrustMap, products must receive at least 1.5% of the traffic volume in that category.
  • Rating. Products must have at least 4 stars with a trScore of 7.5 or above.

Award winners will be featured in our Top Rated coverage and earn a badge on their product page. Badges will also appear wherever the product appears in categories, comparisons, and search results on the TrustRadius website. Winners also receive a copy of the Top Rated Awards badge that can be used across their own website and marketing, completely free to them.

How to be considered for a Top Rated Award

As a vendor, the best way to secure your chance of being Top Rated is to make sure you meet the review recency threshold of 10 reviews published within 12 months of your category’s deadline. In our recent B2B Buying Disconnect survey, 73% of users said they were willing to be advocates and share their perspective with other buyers — but you have to ask. You can also talk to our team about our Review Management Program and how our experts can help you quickly scale your review presence.
