bTrade, the industry-leading compression, encryption and managed file transfer (MFT) provider, announced that it was recognized by Info-Tech Research Group (“Info-Tech”) as the #1mid-market MFT provider. The recognition comes after Info-Tech evaluated a select group MFT companies/solutions and is memorialized in a report titled “Product Scorecard.” Info-Tech produces Product Scorecards on MFT vendors to help MFT buyers make better purchasing decisions. Data in each Product Scorecard “is collected from real end users’ of the product analyzed in an exhaustive fashion with extensive data analytics.”
The Product Scorecard has a section captioned “Multi-Category Overview” in which Info-Tech assigns a “composite satisfaction score” which “is an average of four different areas of evaluation: Net Emotional Footprint, Vendor Capabilities, Product Features, and Likeliness to Recommend.” bTrade received a Composite Score of 9.3 out of 10.
bTrade’s MFT solutions were given the highest scores in most of the areas of evaluation, performing exceptionally well in the “Emotional Footprint” category—which“ measures user emotional response ratings of the vendor (e.g., trustworthy, respectful, fair).” According to Info-Tech, Emotional Footprint is important because “purchasing decisions not only rely on data and facts, but also gut instinct and emotional inputs.” Info-Tech emphasized the importance of the Emotional Footprint category, saying a “vendor’s Emotional Footprint can influence whether a client chooses to do business with the organization.”
bTrade also scored exceptionally well in the “data and facts” categories. In the “Product Feature” category, bTrade scored #1 in six of the 11sub-categories—Transport Security, Data Fidelity, Encryption/Decryption, Session Monitoring, LDAP Support, and Quota Bandwidth Control. In the “Vendor Capability” section, bTrade also scored #1 in six of the 11sub-categories—Breadth of Features, Business Value Created, Usability and Intuitiveness, Product Strategy and Rate of Improvement, Ease of IT Administration, and Availability and Quality of Training. In all the categories bTrade scored above the category average based on the scores of the other MFT vendors involved in the report.
