Company

Business description: PowerReviews provides brands and retailers with a complete solution for consumer product reviews - fully outsourced, white-label and most importantly, free of charge. The company developed patent-pending implementation and customer-facing technologies to deliver this service free to retailers while providing enterprise-quality functionality and reliability. "We believe that reviews are central to the online shopping experience and that the consumer realizes the most benefit when everyone participates, so we created an enterprise-class service that all retailers can use," said Robert Chea, COO of PowerReviews. "What makes reviews so valuable to the retailer is the right kind of reporting. Our reports give retailers relevant and accurate information about their products that help them make better merchandising and product development decisions. Reviews should be a starting point, not a dead-end." To accomplish this PowerReviews developed a number of unique, patent-pending features that improve the consumer and retailer experience, and deliver better, more accurate information about products.
