There are hundreds of online services and apps where reviews of online business take place. These tools make it easy to review a company, but at the same time they make it easy for negative associations of a business to quickly hit the web as well.
Image Forward's system offers 24 hour coverage by continually monitoring the web's popular review specific destinations that appear at the top of searches, looking for any current or new listing of a registered company's name.
Glen Barnhardt, lead programmer for Image Forward states, “Image Forwards Review Monitoring platform was developed with PHP, MySQL, Codeigniter, JQuery, HTML, CSS, and the Google Places API.” Barnhardt continues, “Where data couldn't be obtained through an API we used proprietary techniques to capture the data from web pages.”
Why is this service necessary? Simply because when people search for and see instances of a business name with negative reviews, they are more likely to choose a competitor.
The custom proprietary service is backed by a solid infrastructure and relationship with top directory and reputation management tools that are purpose built, to retrieve, store and notify Image Forward Review Monitoring clients of these listings.
