What is the process for reviewing and accrediting software?

Contact us for a discussion on how we can review your software. We have worked with established products and with products that are in the development stage.

Social Value UK provide a review process that helps you to see whether your software allows your users to produce analyses that are consistent with the Social Value Principles.

 

How much does the Software Review cost?

The price of this service is £500.

A 10% discount is available to organisational members of Social Value International and Social Value UK.

 

How long does the process take?

This will depend on the product. In some instances the review can be made very quickly (within two weeks). If a product is in the development stage then the review can consist of several sessions over a period of time.

 

How long does accreditation last?

Software accreditation lasts for one year. There is a 50% discount for renewals.

 

How useful is the process?

You can read about how useful members have found the software reviewing process in the case study in our Resource Library.
