We do it for the customers who need the best, the business innovators bringing it to them, and the global team here building it all. With Birdeye, companies can put customers at the core of every business decision, turning feedback into insights, insights into action, and customer happiness into revenue.

Founded in 2012, Birdeye is headquartered in Silicon Valley. In 2019, Birdeye was ranked #1 in Online Reputation Management and #60 in the "100 Best Software Companies" in the world by G2 Crowd.
