Reviews about software and apps play an increasingly important role in consumers’ buying decisions. This year the number of reviews written about software and apps has increased significantly, according to our research. Last year, 7% of the Dutch consumers surveyed said they had reviewed a software product or app. This year that number has increased to 15%. With the acceleration of digitalization, the need to read the experiences of other business users will continue to be a useful tool in making the right software choice. Methodology This top 10 was created based on the reviews of business users, both Dutch and foreign, about the Dutch software products on our site. To qualify for the list, the software must:

  • be developed in the Netherlands;
  • have its headquarters in the Netherlands.

Next, the candidates had to:

  • have a minimum of 20 reviews;
  • the reviews could not be older than 2 years to ensure that the score is actually representative. 

From all the remaining candidates, we then selected the 10 best rated. By best rated we mean:

  • The software products that have the highest overall score, rounded to two decimal places. The total score is the overall rating of the product. 
  • In case of an equal total score, we selected as a second criterion the average score of ease of use, customer service, features and value for money.
