More on Reputation:

The majority of consumers — 90% — say online reviews influence their purchasing decisions. Yet marketing departments are at the mercy of third-party algorithms they don't control, and no amount of marketing spend can offset the negative impact of a weak online reputation.Our Reputation Score, much like the consumer FICO score, is an indispensable index for every business, and the accurate measure of how a company can get found, get chosen, and get better. Global companies across industries such as Healthcare, Automotive, Retail Services, Property Management, Financial Services, Storage, and more use our platform to:

  • Monitor, request and respond to online reviews
  • Improve star ratings and search result rankings
  • Audit and maintain business listings and location directories across the web
  • Manage social media engagement and advertising
  • Make operational changes to improve customer experience
  • Maximize customer retention and revenue
