About Bazaarvoice:

Bazaarvoice brings the power of social commerce to the world's best brands, through our ratings and reviews technology. Social commerce happens when you connect customers to one another in ways which drive measurable results. Bazaarvoice helps all types of businesses capture, display, share, and analyze customer conversations online. You may not have heard of us because we are not a consumer facing brand, however you probably interact with our ratings and reviews technology every time you shop online.


Bazaarvoice reaches over 400 million consumers every month, as they shop on the top retailer sites in America. This gives us unique access to the consumer patterns and behaviors that define the consumer shopping experience. Our growing media business leverages this exclusive information base to help brands reach shoppers when they are in buying mode.
