Top Rated awards are the most trusted in the industry because they are never influenced by analyst opinion, the vendor’s size, popularity, or status as a TrustRadius customer. So without further ado…

Here are the winners:

It makes collaborating easier and works across a wide variety of operating systems. It has also helped to consolidate the different versions and variety of software that were being used by different teams.”

LibreOffice

With a TRScore of 8.4 out of 10, LibreOffice is a top rated office suite for 2019 | trustradius.com

LibreOffice is a free open source office suite product from The Document Foundation. It includes tools for word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, databases, and creating diagrams and drawings. LibreOffice uses the OpenDocument format (ODF) as its file format but also supports file types from other major office suites. Half of the LibreOffice users on TrustRadius are from small businesses. TrustRadius users recommend LibreOffice because it is free and avoids the high licensing costs of its competitors.

“It’s used by all the organization to write all documents and to make spreadsheets. We use it because we want to have all documents in an open format that we know it will be maintained for multiple years. Also their price is lower so it helps the organization to save costs by avoiding the need of multiple licenses for an Office software.”

Congratulations to the winners of the Top Rated Office Suites Award!

What are Office Suites?

An office suite is a collection of productivity software used for business or personal reasons and includes separate tools for spreadsheets, word processing, and presentations. Generally, all the products within a suite have a similar interface to simplify tasks for the user. Products within the suite also usually embed well within each other.

Today, more and more office suites are accessed through an annual subscription, either installed or accessed via the cloud. This is compared to the traditional model that was a single purchase of a license to be installed on a local machine. Office suites are also moving to offer more tools in addition to spreadsheets and word processing, such as meeting tools, collaboration tools, and data storage.

Top Rated Criteria

Products included in the 2019 Top Rated Office Suites list must have been in the top tier of their category TrustMap as of September 12th, 2019. To qualify for the Office Suites Top Rated Award, products must have at least 10 reviews written within the past year, a TRScore of at least 7.5 out of 10, and must receive at least 1.5% of the traffic in their category. Every reviewer is verified and every review is vetted before publication. Products are plotted on the TrustMap based on end-user data, including users’ likelihood to recommend scores as well as buyer research patterns.
