Built by Online Reputation Expert Andy Beal
Trackur was created by online reputation management expert Andy Beal. The coauthor of Radically Transparent–the first and only book available on online reputation management–Andy Beal is known around the world as the go-to-guy for reputation building, managing, and monitoring.
Frustrated that existing online reputation monitoring tools were either too complex or too expensive, Andy decided to create Trackur. His goal was fullfilled with the February 2008 public launch of the industry’s easiest, accurate, and affordable reputation tracking solution.
