Celebrating 500,000 Buyers Helped and 2 Million Words of Insight

May of last year we launched TrustRadius, a peer community for business software users to share candid insights through in-depth structured product reviews. Since our launch, more than 500,000 software buyers have visited our site to identify and research business software applications. We currently serve more than 85,000 people each month and our site is growing quickly.

Today we crossed a big milestone – 5,000 published reviews and more than 22,500 comparisons across 700 business software products.

Unlike many consumer products, business software is a highly considered purchase.  To really help decision-making, reviews need to be quite substantive. Unlike simple rating sites, at TrustRadius our emphasis is on collecting in-depth reviews that share context, substantial pros and cons, and ratings with user rationale on key attributes. The average review on TrustRadius is 406 words, about 4x the length of a consumer product review and our longest reviews are over 2,000.

In aggregate, our members have contributed over 2 million words of insight in their reviews – 2,032,899 to be precise.

None of this would be possible without our members, who take time out of their busy schedules to share their insights so that others can make informed and confident decisions. Thank you!
