By responding quickly, our customers can get an unhappy reviewer to change their mind 70% of the time.
From an Operations perspective, Reputology makes it easier to spot recurring issues by aggregating and analyzing your data. It sends automated weekly/monthly summary reports, and it gives you analytics to track your review performance.
- Respond Quickly – Get time-sensitive email alerts. A link in the email shows you where the review originally appeared.
