Emotional Footprint Awards

SoftwareReviews Emotional Footprint Awards evaluate and rank products based on emotional response ratings from IT and business professionals. Using our Emotional Footprint methodology, we aggregate emotional footprint scores across 26 dimensions of the vendor-client relationship and product effectiveness, creating a powerful indicator of overall user feeling toward the vendor and product.

Emotional Footprint Awards are proudly founded in 100% user review data and are free of traditional “magical” components such as market presence and analyst opinion, which are opaque in nature and may be influenced by vendor pressure, financial or otherwise.
