ShopIgniter Expands Its Social eCommerce Suite With Social Ratings & Reviews

Latest Release Enables Companies to Provide Consumers With Product Information From People They Know and Trust

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - March 9, 2011) -  INNOVATE Conference -- ShopIgniter, a rapidly-growing provider of innovative social eCommerce solutions, today announced the release of ShopIgniter Social Ratings & Reviews, further broadening the social eCommerce functionality available in the ShopIgniter sCommerce Suite. With this release, ShopIgniter clients can reward consumers for generating feedback as well as for customers and revenue generated from their social networks.

Key Benefits and Differentiators:

  • Reward Your Customer Network: Increase the generation of consumer feedback within social networks by rewarding users for content produced, and most importantly customers and revenue generated.
  • Content Wherever Your Customer Network Exists:  Connect social networks wherever they are by enabling user generated content on eCommerce Websites, promotional micro-sites or social storefronts in social networks such as Facebook.
  • Socially Weighted Reviews: Using the social graph, consumers are provided with ratings and reviews from their social network, making sure the most relevant and trusted information is available at the point of purchase.
  • Part of a Comprehensive Social eCommerce Solution: Unlike stand alone ratings and reviews systems, ShopIgniter's platform approach enables companies to work with all data objects including customers, transactions, products, categories, brands, customer groups, sales, promotions and more. With this approach, companies can more easily identify and engage influential advocates.

"Brands and retailers can now leverage their customers' product knowledge and experiences to drive brand awareness, customers and revenue," said Matt Compton, CEO of ShopIgniter. "We believe the best way to do this is to deliver social eCommerce solutions that work together on a single platform and are connected to critical customer and transaction data. Our latest release is an example of a point solution that is more powerful as part of our broader platform."
