TruRating – be part of something which will change the world.

Take the plunge. Live the dream. Do something which you know will affect the lives of millions the world over, which will change the way businesses, consumers, even the government thinks. Get out of bed in the morning for that adrenalin hit, love the pace, love the challenge, love doing what has never been done before – and love being the best you’ve ever been. And what’s more, owning part of what you’ve created.

TruRating is a global, rapidly scaling tech start up. With our multi-award-winning, game-changing technology, we take the pulse of consumer sentiment whenever a customer pays, on the payment terminal, via their mobile or online. With an average of 88% of consumers responding in store and 53% online, for the first time ever businesses can now gain access to mass, representative and validated feedback – and as the rating also feeds a consumer website to compete with the likes of Yelp! and TripAdvisor, consumers get trustworthy and representative recommendations on where to go from real customers.

Partnering with the biggest payment companies in the world, our clients include some of the most innovative brands in international retail. Every business with a payment terminal or a web site can have TruRating. With three global patents registered, the world is there for the taking – and we need to grow our passionate team quickly to help us realise our mission for getting the world’s businesses and consumers using and loving TruRating every day.
