INDIANAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- An independent audit of how Angie's List (Nasdaq: ANGI) receives and displays reviews from consumers has again affirmed the company's fair and impartial operations.

The review, from international auditing firm BPA Worldwide, said that Angie's List authenticity controls 'ensure that a service provider's participating in advertising or paid services has no bearing on the handling of reviews.'

'We work exceptionally hard to provide consumers with highly reliable information,' said Angie's List Founder Angie Hicks. 'This outside check validates that our accountability process is robust and fair and helps us deliver on that goal.'

BPA examined the information Angie's List members submitted about the service they received from local service professionals between January and November 2016.

Angie's List, which has more than 10 million verified consumer reviews available for its members to use in making hiring decisions, seeks an annual, independent audit as a check on its internal accountability procedures. Those procedures include:

  • Prohibiting anonymous reporting;
  • Requiring affirmation that consumers are reporting honestly on their own experiences;
  • Prohibiting service professionals from grading themselves or their competitors;
  • Alerting service companies (free of charge) to reports, so they are aware of what's being said;
  • Encouraging service companies to respond (free of charge) to give their side of the story; and
  • Using proprietary technology and human review to screen red flags or allegations of trying to manipulate the system.

Service professionals who earn and can maintain high grades from members, pass annual criminal background checks, offer special member discounts and abide by Angie's List stringent customer-service standards are eligible to advertise their services. Internal teams monitor the service companies' grades and performance to ensure they continue to meet eligibility requirements.

BPA has conducted analysis of the Angie's List process since 2007.
