It all started with a tire shop.
A few years back, Eric (Co-Founder and CEO) got a frustrated call from his dad. His dad’s tire shop had plenty of happy customers, but only a handful of angry ones were leaving reviews. So we built a product that made getting more reviews as easy as sending a text.
As we set out to solve the same problem for local businesses everywhere, we realized that messaging with customers wasn’t just the better way to get reviews—it’s the better way to do business. We’ve since built a multi-product platform that’s modernizing the way local business gets done.
