Tech talk

Podium has launched an AI-powered communication tool to aid businesses in responding to visitor comments online. The ‘Review Response Suggestions’ tool is powered using ChatGPT, and works by generating response suggestions to comments and reviews left by outgoing clients. On the tool, Podium CEO Eric Rea said “Online reviews have never been more influential, but as a business owner staying on top of them – good or bad – can be a daunting and time-consuming task. “Our integration with ChatGPT is designed to unburden local businesses, enabling them to manage their online reputation more efficiently and spend more time working on meaningful, face-to-face or revenue-generating tasks.” To learn more, visit: www.podium.com.au.

Vanessa Megan Astaxanthin & Marine Collagen Skin Boost

Astaxanthin is a carotenoid often used as a dietary supplement to aid immunity and skin health. When ingested, the powerful ingredient is known to reduce moisture loss and smoothen skin texture. Try in partnership with your daily dose of marine collagen for the ultimate skin fix. We love a teaspoon of Vanessa Megan’s Astaxanthin & Marine Collagen Skin Boost mixed with coconut water.
