The concept of Maike was invented by co-founder Eliza when she became frustrated trying to figure out the best running shoe to purchase. There were too many shoes available, too many websites to look at and way too many reviews to read. And the reviews were sometimes helpful and sometimes not. And sometimes fake. There had to be a better, faster way to find the right product and that was when Maike was born.
What if you could find the best product for you by reading just one review? We take the pain out of product research by providing the consumer with the results of hundreds of products and thousands of customer reviews in one easy to read format. At Maike, we get rid of the 5 star system and actually look at the words the reviewer writes. Maike applies AI and sentiment analysis reading reviews to produce Maike rate score from 1-10. We match these to the users’ specific requirement to deliver the highest recommended product.
