Company Overview

For over 20 years, the wRatings team has provided independent, competitive research to CEOs and their executive teams as well as the hedge fund and private equity community. Through our SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) tool, we empower executives to make decisions better, faster and with more confidence to grow revenue and simultaneously cut costs by eliminating unnecessary activity. Our patented research uses customer perceptions and predictive analytics to instantly analyze where opportunities exist to generate competitive strength and pricing power.

In May 2002, our research was featured as the cover article in Harvard Business Review, and is used today in multiple investment indexes including the Best Managed Companies annual rankings from the Drucker Institute. These rankings are published in the Wall Street Journal near the end of each calendar year. We continually collect customer data on a targeted group of companies that represent all sectors of the global economy. Our subscribing clients combine our analytics on these top performing companies with their own customer data to build durable competitive advantages.
