If you're interested, have a look at our article on why review management companies charge an arm and a leg for their services, and how we're different.

This is how we break down in each area:

Review management

Review management starts with getting all your cross-platform reviews into one dashboard, giving you an overview of all reviews in one place. You can then get notifications for those reviews, respond to them and much more.

Our key differentiator here is that we let you run multiple accounts (like agencies) white label under your own account, which for example means that you can resell our software to other agencies under your brand. This is baked in to our service and doesn't require a hefty upgrade.
