Reviews.co.uk is a British company founded in 2010, offering a technologically advanced reviews platform. As other review platforms, the company has a consumer-facing side as well as a business offering. With that said, they do state that they do not accept responsibility for "the accuracy or completeness of contributions" made by reviewers, and the company "does not read through or edit contribution added", unlike other review platforms.
Their platform stands out by being beautifully designed, making it a joy to use. Being a small company, they seem to take a more personal approach to their clients, who range from small companies to public companies. They offer competitive and transparent pricing, with a 30-day notice period for termination of contract. Also, their license agreement with Google provides their customers additional exposure to Google Seller Ratings.

TrustedCompany is a review collection and management platform, similar to the likes of Trustpilot and TrustedShops. Their main differentiation is that they focus on emerging markets such as Indonesia, Brazil and India; other than this they have a very similar offering to other review platforms.
TrustedCompany was recently acquired by the French company Net Reviews, which work with large French enterprise clients like Fnac, Lacoste and Air France. Though little has been published about the acquisition, it was likely strategic in nature to bolster their presence in emerging markets.

All in all, Reviews.co.uk provides a broad suite of tools that helps companies large and small with their online reviews. Though they have a strong business offering, they also seem to prioritize their consumer-facing services, which include a mobile app which is touted as "The World's First Socially Responsible Review App". The company's consumer efforts seem to be restricted to the United Kingdom, though businesses all over the world can benefit from the business offerings.
TrustedCompany offers a compelling review platform solution for companies based in South East Asia, India and Brazil, and has been building their brand towards consumers in these geographies for the past few years. For companies outside of these areas, there are likely more fitting review platforms which have a better brand awareness with consumers there.
