Rogue traders have nowhere to hide as new Customer Review Directory highlights best practice and exposes the worst UK companies via customer feedback and credit ratings 

• 1st Online Directory with free Equifax Credit Ratings of 1.5 million UK companies 
• Free web presence for every UK business to blog and upload videos & details
• The “BView Score” – unique customer ratings algorithm determine best companies

http://www.bview.co.uk has been launched - the first unbiased, online reviews directory that highlights the UK's best and worst practice companies - as ranked by their customers.

Unlike opt-in business directories and review sites, BView lists the details of 2.3 million preloaded UK companies, as well as free company credit ratings, customer reviews and ratings.  This interactive customer review directory encourages better business practice by helping customers make informed decisions to avoid bad companies and connect with their customers, through their own BView business page.

Customers can now search through league tables of businesses ranked by their customers.  A regularly updated “BView Score” is given to every business by customers rating the Quality, Reliability and Value of the products and services they received. The score is calculated from a unique algorithm and weighted according to the reviewers’ profile and BView influence.

“We are already finding companies competing to be the top business in their industry with the best ‘BView Score’”, says BView CEO, Brad Liebmann. “This level of transparency is the only way forward for UK businesses. We passionately believe that rogue traders should have nowhere to hide; the only way to source reliable suppliers is to BView before you buy.”

Leading SME expert Prof Andrew Burke of Cranfield School of Management believes BView is pro-competition: “This is a fairly radical transformation of the dominant economic model. The site encourages innovation as businesses now need to be more competitive and responsive to consumer needs, thereby strengthening the UK economy”.

Surprisingly, 72% of sole traders do not have an online presence.  BView addresses this issue by providing a ready-made web page for every UK business.  Businesses are encouraged to take control of their reputation and make easy enhancements such as uploading photographs, videos and relevant information to their free BView business page.  The purchase of a premium package giving additional web space is also possible for businesses wishing to expand on their free allocation.

Liebmann concludes: “This next-generation directory is also a communications platform, which enhances the power of word of mouth and third party referrals and forces companies to raise their game. It will quickly replace traditional one-way directories”.
