A few years back, Eric (Podium's Co-Founder and CEO) got a frustrated call from his dad. His dad’s tyre shop had plenty of happy customers, but only a handful of angry ones were leaving online reviews. So he 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 realised 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 messaging platform that’s modernising the way business gets done locally.
Whether it starting a conversation online with Webchat, keeping your customer updated, collecting payment via text, or driving reviews on Google; Podium makes it simple and possible all from one consolidated platform.
