for expert reviews



Media companies are unable to capitalize their expert reviews. This while consumers often let their buying decision be guided by expert reviews from quality media when it comes to literature, culture but also FMCG. The problem is that these reviews are not easy to collect. Catch-up is a worldwide innovative platform with aggregated expert reviews of leading media for products such as books, films, theater, music, etc. Catch-Up provides an overview of reviewed products and a link to the original online review / media page. Media permission is not required for this!

Catch-up is the first mover in this area and opens the global market for expert reviews. It also has an enormously scalable business model, both technically and commercially.
