Some weeks ago 9 Croatian companies got featured as one of the best B2B global development agencies. Mono, Ingemark, Five, Bornfight, Infinum, Inchoo, Factory, Kontra and Neuralab were chosen for this Clutch Top1000 list which is a massive success on the Croatian IT scene (keep in mind that Croatia counts for only 0.05 % of the global population). Full Clutch list is filled with more Croatian companies, proving our country is an excellent digital playground and a source of highly skilled engineers or designers.
I lurked around to see how Clutch indexes references and noticed they are using a simple auto-increase integer. As Neuralab got its first Clutch client reference in July 2017, there were around 170.000 submitted references at that time. Fast-forward to December 2019 and there are now over 1,2 million (!) submitted references by agencies all around the world (the uptick is especially seen in the last half of this year). It looks like “user reviews” are gaining massive traction in the IT industry and that we will (probably) see a similar influence like reviews had on restaurant or movie industry. What are your thoughts on that? Can complex services be graded in the same manner as commodity services?
Platforms like Clutch give objective evaluations and show who is leading online industries across the globe. In essence, Clutch is a B2B market research firm that employs a unique ratings formula to compare companies across industries. For instance, Neuralab is one out of 27 vendors featured for e-commerce web development, and only one out of 9 vendors in the Top1000 list that have an office in New York. Submitted client reviews are a cornerstone metric for all these evaluations. Clutch team conducts these audits via telephone and email to make sure of information integrity and client objectivity.
In any case, You can learn more about their services on Clutch’s sister sites The Manifest and Visual Objects. The Manifest, a business data and how-to platform that builds trust for buyers interested in verified vendors, lists Neuralab on their directory of top e-commerce companies. Visual Object, a portfolio-based site for B2B vendors, also features us on their directory of eCommerce development agencies.
