Crowdsourcing Quality

Consumers rely on niche rating systems for purchasing decisions

Implications - Today's informed consumer is not satisfied with a product's own claim for quality and instead, is relying on open rating systems and crowdsourcing for purchasing decisions. Rating apps are thus being released to assist in an array of choices. This allows for more transparency with a product or service's claimed quality.
