Hi, we're Shake πŸ‘‹ Our mission is to help companies grow with online reviews, whether 1st party (on their business) or 3rd party (on other businesses). We leverage big data to enable workflows that have never been seen before, with a software as a service approach in Reviewshake and a data as a service approach in Datashake.
