Ozobot partners with PowerReviews to leverage PowerReviews’ Ratings & Reviews integration with Shopify 

Ozobot builds small, smart toy robots that empower gamers and learners to code, play, create and connect the physical and digital worlds.

Leveraging Shopify

Shopify has been a good partner to date for Ozobot. Prior to switching to Shopify, the Ozobot team used WordPress for ecommerce. When comparing the two offerings, Ozobot ultimately found Shopify’s SaaS model made managing and optimizing their ecommerce store easy, thanks to the wide range of useful apps and services available to merchants.

When reviewing the results of a post-purchase survey, Ozobot discovered that product reviews were the #1 consideration for Ozobot’s consumers — even over discounts and referrals. This is consistent with PowerReviews findings that 86% of consumers consider reviews an essential part of their decision making process. This was a powerful finding for the Ozobot team, and a leading factor in their decision to partner with PowerReviews to collect more user-generated content.

“I work with a lot of tech teams and many times they will just lead you directly to a knowledge base. It’s nice to just get the answer I need directly from a real person.”

“I would definitely recommend PowerReviews, largely on their platform capabilities and technical support team’s ability to respond, help and actually answer questions.”

Partnering with PowerReviews

Functionality and resources were the primary reasons the Ozobot team chose PowerReviews. As Shopify’s preferred reviews partner, PowerReviews’ plug-in makes installing ratings and reviews easy. Ozobot was also able to leverage key products like Seller Ratings and Review Syndication which allows Ozobot to share product reviews with their retailers. Given that they’re set to sell through many new retailers in 2017, the ability to reach 5,000 sites and one billion in-market shoppers each month across the web made PowerReviews the right choice for an Ozobot team that’s looking to scale.

 

Having worked with a variety of SaaS partners in the past, Ozobot has also been impressed by the responsiveness and resourcefulness of PowerReviews’ tech support team. Ozobot appreciates PowerReviews working hand-in-hand with them, answering questions and ensuring a smooth implementation. “I would definitely recommend PowerReviews, largely on their platform capabilities and technical support team’s ability to respond, help and actually answer questions,” said Anthony Delos Santos, Digital Marketing Manager at Ozobot. “I work with a lot of tech teams and many times they will just lead you directly to a knowledge base. It’s nice to just get the answer I need directly from a real person.”
