Bazaarvoice and TurnTo Form Partnership to Bring More Consumer-Generated Content to Retailers

Agreement provides brands using TurnTo ratings and reviews the ability to syndicate ratings and reviews content into the Bazaarvoice Retailer Network

AUSTIN, Texas, March 9, 2017 — Bazaarvoice, Inc. (Nasdaq: BV) and TurnTo Networks announced today they have reached an agreement to offer TurnTo’s brand clients the opportunity to syndicate their ratings and reviews into the Bazaarvoice Retailer Network. The partnership, which is effective immediately, expands Bazaarvoice’s ability to import quality, authentic consumer-generated content (CGC) for its retail clients, while providing TurnTo an additional syndication solution for its brands.

Through the agreement, brands who use TurnTo’s solutions for collecting ratings and reviews can further enhance content distribution via the Bazaarvoice Retailer Network by entering into a separate agreement with Bazaarvoice for syndication.
