Bloomreach works with customers across a range of industries, from technology to retail, and include companies like Williams-Sonoma, Yahoo!, Neiman Marcus, Staples and Newegg.
The centerpiece of BloomReach’s service is their Web Relevance Engine (WRE), machine learning technology that collects massive amounts of data, uses that data to analyze demand and helps create more precisely targeted online marketing.
Each day, BloomReach’s WRE reads 10 billion web pages, completes 1,000 Hadoop jobs, and processes 1 billion customer interactions. The applications powered by the WRE are for paid, organic, and mobile search:
Paid search: BloomReach applications provide insights to assist businesses in making better keyword investments and help direct web traffic to pay per click landing pages most targeted to customer needs.
Organic search: BloomReach applications place relevant links on web pages, including related searches and products, that help channel visitors to precisely the information and services they need, building spider food for web crawlers in the process.
Mobile search: BloomReach applications create cross-channel optimization, enhance predictive search and gather online social intelligence to help businesses better capitalize on mobile traffic.
