MGI 360 Ratings is a comprehensive system for evaluating technology companies. IT organizations use MGI 360 to track suppliers, assess purchasing risks and identify promising new vendors. Vendors utilize MGI 360 to track their markets and evaluate partners. Institutional investors use MGI 360 for independent assessment of tech companies. MGI 360 ratings help lower costs, save time, reduce risks, and identify new opportunities. 
The MGI 360 ratings are on a scale from 0 to 100 and reflect company opinions of MGI analysts in five key areas on a scale of 0 to 20:
  • PRODUCT: How strong is the product competitive position
  • MANAGEMENT: How competent and experienced is the management team
  • CHANNELS: Does the company have a sales capability and channels needed to bring products to market?
  • STRATEGY: Does the company have a realistic view of the opportunity and a compelling strategy for success?
  • FINANCE: Is the company growing and profitable
Each of these key criteria is subdivided into numerous sub-categories. In total, over 149 criteria are combined to generate an MGI 360 rating in each specific market space. Companies can have one or more MGI 360 rating - one for each market. MGI 360 ratings are revised as important developments occur. While the MGI 360 rating process is comprehensive, this scoring system is not meant to be a predictor of company solvency, liquidity, absence of accounting fraud or stock performance. Access to MGI 360 Ratings is by subscription.
