TurnTo Is The Fastest-Growing UGC Solution Provider to the IR500
Leading Online Retailers Are Switching to TurnTo
New York, NY (May 28, 2015): According to the newest data from the leading trade publication, Internet Retailer, TurnTo Networks Inc. is the fastest-growing user-generated content (UGC) solution provider to the “IR500” – the top 500 online retailers in North America.
Of the top three solution providers in Internet Retailer’s “Customer Reviews and Forums” category, only TurnTo showed significant growth from the 2014 tally to 2015. The number of top 500 retailers using TurnTo grew by 60% during the period, while the number using the other two declined 3% and 56% respectively.
Measured by the annual web sales of the retailers served, the results were even more dramatic. TurnTo grew 199% during the period, while one of the others grew only 2% and the other declined 22%. Additionally, the Internet Retailer 2015 research shows that almost two-thirds of the annual web sales of one of the others is represented by a single customer. Excepting this, TurnTo would rank second in this Internet Retailer category by a wide margin.“We are pleased to be recognized as a leading provider of user-generated content solutions for top online retailers” said George Eberstadt, CEO of TurnTo Networks. “The market has been eager for a fresh, enterprise-grade alternative for Product Ratings & Reviews, and for faster, more effective innovation in related products like Community Q&A. Our focus on product innovation and individualized customer service seems to be just what many stores and brands are looking for.”
