Drewberry joined Reviews.io some 2 years ago. Today we're checking in with them to see how they've been getting on with their journey so far.



Before coming to Reviews.io, Drewberry were previously collecting with Review Centre. They strive to be the best and knew having the ability to listen and learn to their customers was essential if they were to be at the top of their game.

Being in the financial sector, they also saw indispensable value in being able to showcase proof of the many customers they'd made happy in the form of online reviews across the web, as they knew positive testimonials were something clients actively sought out.

Reviews were becoming increasinly important to Drewberry, and they wanted to make sure their Review Platform was up to the challenge. They were looking for a sleeker review process to encourage more customers to lead feedback and wanted to be able to display these reviews on Google as well as on their site in quality widgets.
