When we started Shopalize two years ago, we observed a very simple problem - there was not an easy way to share purchases or deals with friends after buying something online. We were surprised to see that none of the leading e-commerce companies were offering this simple functionality to today’s social consumers. The most common feedback we heard was that e-commerce companies were struggling to cope up with the fast moving social world. We were convinced that it was a problem worth solving with unique and seamless approach.
Over the period, this simple idea of sharing online purchases kept evolving and became the vision for offering seamless social experiences to consumers and helping e-commerce companies offer new social services. But we never imagined what the future would hold for us.
This journey has been exhilarating and inspiring for Shopalize. We launched engaging social plugins, a comprehensive platform, learned about our industry, and developed a community that we cherish. We currently have more than 600 e-commerce companies actively using our solutions. These solutions enable our customers to promote their brand, increase sales through social sharing, and measure the ROI of their social marketing initiatives through our comprehensive platform.
It is with this past in mind that we’re proud to announce our next step: Shopalize has been acquired by 7, (www.247-inc.com), the intuitive customer experience company.
7 offers solutions that leverage big data and predictive analytics to understand customers and drive better customer service and sales results. With the acquisition of Shopalize technology, 7 plans to offer rich, social experiences to online consumers while they interact with businesses.
7 is the perfect partner as we continue our journey. The company shares our passions and values, our belief in the power of social experiences, particularly for the new generation of consumers who are continuously online, and expect the best experience when they interact with businesses.
With 7 by our side, our team will continue to make Shopalize’s offering the best it can be.
We are excited for this new turn in our journey, and cannot wait to share with you what’s next. Join us on this journey and help us shape the future of the intuitive customer experience.
CEO, Shopalize Inc.
