BevyUp, the company that makes
online shopping a social experience, today emerged from stealth mode and
announced a cloud-delivered service that enables retailers to add
real-time and off-line collaborative shopping capabilities to their
online stores. The BevyUp service allows two or more people to shop
together by adding co-browsing, communication (Facebook, text and email
invites, text chat, video chat) and collaboration (sentiment tagging)
capabilities to any e-commerce site. It also provides actionable
intelligence on shoppers' product sentiments and preferences to help
retailers convert sales and capture add-on and up-sell opportunities.

In a recent blog
post, Jason Goldberg, Founder and CEO of Fab, the world's fastest
growing e-commerce site, wrote: "The third wave of e-commerce is all
about bringing emotional purchases online. Non-commodity products. More
thoughtful purchase decisions. I like to call this Emotional Commerce.
This is categories like furniture, home accessories, home textiles,
fashion, art, and jewelry." BevyUp brings the collaborative social
shopping experience typically associated with brick-and-mortar stores to
e-commerce. It is currently in use by several leading retail websites
including jewelry, wedding and travel stores.
"Shoppers that want to browse and buy online with their friends and
family are currently resorting to tools that were not designed for
shopping -- like Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, etc. -- to try tomake
multiparty purchasing decisions," said Mauricio Cuevas, CEO of BevyUp.
"The BevyUp service provides online marketers a unified platform that
enables, captures and monetizes social interactions on their sites. It
also generates actionable business intelligence on sentiments behind
purchase decisions that would otherwise remain locked up on social media
sites and in email exchanges and phone conversations."
The BevyUp Service
Many online purchases involve more than one decision maker, including
apparel, travel, bridal, jewelry, real estate, and more. Often, buyers
are in different cities, states or even countries. BevyUp layers a
collaborative social experience on top of any e-commerce site by
enabling two or more people to shop online together.
In deployments, BevyUp has increased the four leading metrics for
e-commerce sales: time on site, page views, average order value and
conversion rates. The service unifies a complete set of collaborative
shopping and communication tools in one integrated platform to provide
the following features and benefits:
