Here’s the truth.

THRYV:“All in One Business Solution.” I love, love, love Thryv. This platform saved me so much money being an all inclusive solution. It’s my crm, social media manager, next-day invoicing solution, online presence, and client scheduling & engagement all in one. I’m has 24/7 customer service support. And I’ve even gotten an up to date, engaging website out of my service with Thryv. Their are sooo many services Thryv offers and many I haven’t yet utilized. If you run a business if any sort this is hands down the best solution to save you time, money and ultimately increase your revenue. Thankful I found Thryv.

PODIUM:“It worked ok but it was lacking a lot of potential functionality.”The ease of navigating through reviews and posting responses was nice. They do offer a chat feature as well for websites. We originally used it only as a review management service. Review collected by and hosted on Sometimes switching between accounts wasn’t easy. Sometimes there was a lag in reviews/messages showing up in the dashboard. Their usefulness became limited for us when we realized there were other platforms out there that could do the same thing, and more, at a more affordable cost.
