Thousands of the world’s leading brands and retailers trust Bazaarvoice’s technology, services, and expertise to drive revenue, extend reach, gain actionable insights, and create loyal advocates. 

Bazaarvoice’s extensive global retail, social, and search syndication network, product-passionate community, and enterprise-level technology provide the tools brands and retailers need to create smarter shopper experiences across the entire customer journey. Founded in 2005, Bazaarvoice is headquartered in Austin, Texas, with offices in North America, Europe, and Australia.


With BaxterBoo’s wide variety of pet brands and products, product discovery proved to be a challenge for online shoppers. If a shopper arrived on the site without a specific pet brand or product name in mind, it was a struggle to narrow down their search results. 

This experience worked against their mission to ensure customer satisfaction and a great online experience. And while shoppers had to scroll through countless pages of search results, their internal team faced a similar manual process. 

BaxterBoo’s native platform failed to offer the merchandising control they desired. Arranging products on category pages and search results pages became extremely time-consuming and tedious.


In 2021, BaxterBoo knew it was time to improve its site search experience and navigation. They partnered with Searchspring for its out-of-the-box search functionality and advanced merchandising capabilities.

With Searchspring, BaxterBoo implemented synonyms to ensure that shoppers not only found relevant products but the same set of items whether they searched for ‘apparel’ or ‘clothes’. BaxterBoo also leveraged Searchspring’s custom sort and filter options to speed up product findability. Filters like “breed size”, “flavor”, and “ingredients” provided better navigation through their large selection of products – guiding shoppers directly to what they’re looking for. 

With Searchspring’s advanced merchandising suite, the BaxterBoo team gained total control over what shoppers could see on the site. Scheduling tools allowed them to prepare merchandising campaigns in advance and easily set them for specific dates and times. When a promotion ended, they no longer had to worry about inadvertently running a sale for longer than intended either. 

To help shoppers throughout every step of the buying journey, BaxterBoo also leveraged the Searchspring and Bazaarvoice integration. The integration gave shoppers the ability to sort product results from high to low review ratings. It also enabled shoppers to filter products based on a product’s star ratings. And, with the ability to display product star ratings on search results and collection pages, BaxterBoo was able to drive consumer trust.


“Over the last year, BaxterBoo saw that 18% of their shoppers were using search. And, that 18% of shoppers contributed to 44% of their overall revenue captured on the site”, says Tyler Benjamin, Customer Success Manager, Team Lead at Searchspring. “This means that when shoppers were looking for a specific product, Searchspring was yielding hyper-relevant results that led shoppers to convert at a rate 2X higher than the cross-industry averages we typically see.”
