AUSTIN, Texas, May 27, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bazaarvoice, Inc. (Nasdaq:BV),
the network connecting brands and retailers to the authentic voices of
consumers wherever they shop, has released a new Extend integration module
with hybris software, the world's fastest-growing commerce platform provider.
This new integration module enables hybris customers to quickly and easily

on the hybris Extend marketplace, the integration enables a faster and
smoother implementation process, shortening the time to value from Bazaarvoice

"As the Web continues to expand its influence on global online and offline
commerce, online businesses are prioritizing ratings and reviews capabilities
because of the necessity to reach customers with engaging, informative
information that impacts their purchase decisions," said Alan Godfrey,
executive vice president, Strategic Partnerships at Bazaarvoice. "Our
collaboration with hybris makes it easy to extend the capabilities of one of
the market's most powerful and flexible commerce platforms with Bazaarvoice's
best-in-class ratings and reviews platform, giving customers the ability to
drive higher conversions and deliver a superior customer experience."

The Bazaarvoice hybris Extend integration provides a complete integration of
Bazaarvoice Conversations into the hybris Commerce Accelerator for B2C
Commerce and is easily configurable in the hybris back end. The solution will
enable businesses to connect with customers directly in the omni-channel
commerce experience, empowering them to share product opinions and category
knowledge that influences purchase decisions. In turn, marketers can use the
insights from rating and review content to continuously improve their
understanding how consumers buy, what they value most, and how the brand can
fulfill their needs.

"At hybris we are constantly dedicated to the enrichment of the consumer
omni-channel experience," commented Kevin Harris, director of channels,
Americas, at hybris. "This latest Extend integration module by Bazaarvoice is
pivotal in helping our customers benefit as fast as possible from Bazaarvoice
Conversations as part of their hybris solution. The result is a more
meaningful, satisfying user experience that drives improved customer
engagement, and increased sales and loyalty."
