How the Emotional Footprint is Calculated 

The Emotional Footprint Buyer’s Guide captures the overall experience of working with a software vendor and their platform. Organizations increasingly rely on software vendors to be true partners to help improve their operations. The Emotional Footprint helps a company understand how to trust and rely on a vendor to support them through their relationship.

SortwareReviews collects 25 data points outlining that experience, from the initial contracting and negotiation phase, though how they will support a company if conflicts arise, to how their overall product strategy and direction will help a company improve. The report is used to understand which vendors focus on building relationships to create a loyal customer base. 

The Emotional Footprint index tracks responses across 26 dimensions of emotional footprint that span 5 categories: Purchasing, Service Experience, Product Impact, Vendor Strategy, and Conflict Resolution. The final index is calculated as a percentage of positive reviews minus the percentage of negative reviews.
