One of our customers faced such a challenge and this is how they solved it with help from NapoleonCat:

 

CCC is a popular European footwear retailer and producer, with as many as 496 locations listed in Google Maps. They’ve been using NapoleonCat to manage close to 1500 Google My business reviews a month, and transformed a tiresome, manual process into just 4-5 hours a week!

 

“CCC has over 500 locations in Poland, with over 1000 new Google reviews a month. With NapoleonCat, we can react quickly and make sure none of them is left unanswered.”
