In most categories, there are plenty of options for software to choose from. Top Rated awards help distinguish products in a category that has excellent customer satisfaction ratings. TrustRadius issues Top Rated awards each year in every category on our site.
Top Rated awards are based entirely on reviews. There is no paid placement or analyst opinion.
To qualify for a Top Rated award, a product must meet the following three criteria for recency, rating, and relevance at the time the awards are issued:
- Recency: The product must have 10 or more recent reviews (from the past year)
- Rating: The product must have a trScore of 7.5 or higher
- Relevance: The product must earn at least .5% of the site traffic in the category
Where do Top Rated badges appear?
Top Rated badges appear on a product’s page on our site, and in many places where that product is displayed elsewhere on our site, such as when it’s being compared to another product.
The full list of Top Rated products for a category appears on the category’s page under the “Top Rated” tab. Products that have this category as their primary category appear first on the list, sorted by highest trScore. This is followed by products that are included in the category, but it is not their main category, sorted by the highest trScore.
The top 5 highest rated Top Rated products also appear on the main category page.
How can vendors use the Top Rated badge?
Vendors who earn the badge can use it, for free, on their own sites, in a press release, on a blog, in email, or on social media. The award allows vendors to share the social proof with their audiences based on the authentic voice of their customers.

We ask that you do not change the badge’s shape, color, or wording. The award allows vendors to share social proof with their prospects based on the authentic voice of real users.
