360Quadrants combines inputs from four key stakeholders—industry experts, buyers, vendors, and analysts—to rate products and vendors. We use a patent-pending inhouse algorithm on collected inputs to rate products & vendors based on criteria identified under product maturity and company maturity. These ratings are then used to place products & vendors on the relevant quadrant.
Product maturity consists of criteria categorized under the following parameters:
Company maturity consists of criteria categorized under the following parameters:
Each identified stakeholder of the platform has a varied weight attached to its input (ratings and reviews). Inputs from buyers (past or present clients of vendors) have the highest weight, followed by inputs from industry experts, 360Quadrants analysts, and vendors (competitors).

The weight attached to User’s Designation or User’s Company is defined by 360Quadrants. Changes to User’s Company or User’s Designation are subject to inputs received after the change is brought to the notice of the 360Quadrants team. Such changes will not be retrospective in nature.
