“PowerReviews continues to add new clients, including some of the largest brands and retailers in the world. We are rapidly expanding our partnership program to serve the whole market by making it even easier for customers of all sizes to integrate PowerReviews with leading e-commerce platforms. In addition, we are entering new business sectors, including financial services.” said Matt Moog, chief executive officer, PowerReviews. “I am very optimistic about the coming year, as more and more consumers rely on user generated content. We have the right leadership team and superior technology to expand our product portfolio and accelerate our strong and continuous growth. ”
The company continues to invest in technology innovation, including the launch of its visual content offering. Retailers and brands can now showcase images in a gallery on their product pages’ review display and consumers can submit and view videos directly on retailer and brand sites from mobile devices.

In addition, clients saw more traffic, with 18% more impressions for product pages with visual content compared to those without.
PowerReviews announced the expansion of its Open Network, which ensures the continued syndication of authentic product reviews collected on brand sites to leading e-commerce retailer sites. Review syndication makes more reviews available to shoppers on more e-commerce sites. Syndication enables the distribution of reviews collected on brand sites to retail e-commerce sites to make that content visible to more shoppers. On average, retailers receive 58% of their review content from syndication and currently more than 80 million reviews have been syndicated across the network.
PowerReviews serves clients of all sizes including the largest retailers as well as small and fast growing clients. PowerReviews has added more than 200 enterprise clients within the last year, representing more than $200 billion in combined revenue. In addition, the company boasts nearly 100 clients that have retail sales exceeding $1 billion. The company’s technology can scale for all merchants while providing seamless ratings and reviews implementation, increased review coverage through syndication, and comprehensive reporting.
PowerReviews has added more than 75 people in the past year and has more than doubled its headcount in the past two years. In addition, the company was just named to the Best and Brightest list by National Association for Business Resources. The rapid expansion and hiring will continue given the pace of new client acquisitions. Last month, PowerReviews moved into a expanded 52,000 sqf space at 1 N. Dearborn, more than doubling the previous space. This additional space will allow the company to continue its impressive growth, with high ceilings, natural light, a large gym, beautiful rooftop space, and it’s centrally located to public transportation.
