Each week, TechCo features five tech startups that can help streamline your daily life. This week in Startup Spotlight, we found an app that unlocks hidden credit card benefits, a one-stop-shop of technology solutions, an AI public speaking coach, and more.

Sift (San Francisco, CA)

Ever purchase something on your credit card only to find out it went on sale two weeks later and the hassle of putting in a claim to get money back never reaches your to-do list? Sift is a new app to help you unlock hidden credit card benefits like automatic rebates and cash back for items purchased that your credit card already offers. The platform manages the benefits on each of your cards and streamlines the claim process so you get your money back simply by signing up. Sift also tracks your purchases and offers price protection, so if the price of an item drops days after it's purchased, you're covered. Additionally, the app offers access to travel benefits like trip cancellation protection and free rental car insurance. Sift is available on the App Store and Google Play.

Teckedin (Albuquerque, NM)

Instead of Googling for all your tech answers, Teckedin calls itself a one-stop-shop for tech solutions. The platform helps users research information, solutions and expert advice on topics such as enterprise content management, networks, cloud computing, artificial intelligence, and more, for later use. Teckedin also offers services technology providers. Providers create a company page that clearly shows users what your company is about and reaches a tech-minded audience. Both users and providers have access to virtual trade shows, webinars, and reviews on solutions and integrators.

Attently (Fairbanks, AK)

Using artificial intelligence, Attently teaches you how to improve your public speaking skills. Attently analyzes video to track when your audience was most and least engaged. In addition to understanding the emotional changes in your audience, you will receive an audio recording and transcription of each presentation. All this information is compiled and clearly displayed in one place. Attently points out the high and low points of your presentation so you know what to focus on. Whether you want a general rundown or to pinpoint a specific problem in your performance, Attently can do it.

Galloper (Phoenix, AZ)

Galloper is a rideshare app for horse trailers. It's changing the way horses are transported by simplifying everything from booking to payment. With one touch, owners can request safe, reliable transport and select the hauler that's the best fit. Hauler reviews make it easy to find another horse lover you can trust. Owners can communicate with the hauler and track their horse's progress via smartphone through pinpointed GPS updates. Payment is collected and distributed through the app once the horse has arrived at its destination. For haulers, filling your trailer has never been easier and you set the price. The app is available on the App Store and Google Play.

Honeydue (San Francisco, CA)

Tired of trying to split the bill with your significant other at the end of the month? Honeydue is here to help. Honeydue is an app for couples that lets you share balances, bills, and budgets. Couples can track their spending and even up balances at the end of the month instead of after each individual bill. Honeydue also lists upcoming bill payments and coordinates reminders so you can skip the late fees. The app is available on the App Store and Google Play.
