Bazaarvoice is overall a quite strong ratings and reviews platform. If you have a national brand and want to integrate ratings and reviews into your website, Bazaarvoice should be in your consideration set. If you have a small business or a tighter budget, you may find Bazaarvoice too robust or expensive of a platform. If your brand gets a lot of organic product reviews, Bazaarvoice will be a helpful tool to increase brand credibility and search engine rankings. If you need help getting consumers to review your products, Bazaarvoice offers sampling programs. These programs can get very pricy depending on how many SKUs you are looking for reviews on. Bazaarvoice also has a proprietary platform where they collect consumer reviews for many brands, and once you have the Bazaarvoice ratings and reviews platform, you may be able to purchase reviews of your products and have them sync to your website without having to run a sampling program.

ResellerRatings is a good tool for collecting ratings and quantifying how satisfied a user is with your website. It is relatively easy to implement and get setup and does have some pre-built widgets for adding reviews to your site. ResellerRatings does require a bit of training to get the hang of the administrative interface and it does require support staff to monitor, flag, and respond to reviews that are submitted (which can be a challenge depending on # of reviews and staffing levels).
We are happy with the product and really just need to optimise our deployment of it on an ongoing basis. There is a lot of functionality prebuilt within Bazaarvoice which we want to have on our site, and to recreate this in our platform would take significant effort which is not practical for us.

I'm sure all processes and program can improve, however Bazaarvoice has reached a very easy usability level and hope this continues as the product improves over time.

The Bazaarvoice team is always available via call, email, or any other platform to provide help, guidance, or to push or ask for the task we set earlier. They are talkative and easy to share information and discuss issues if there are any. Thay may have more out of box solutions for easy implementation, but as a whole, and regarding support I am satisfied.

Even though both
and Bazaar Voice are capable of fulfilling the aforementioned needs,
also provides free trials. PowerReview's style options aren't always user-friendly, but the app is worth checking out if aesthetic concerns aren't top of mind. Bazaar Voice, on the other hand, sounds really professional and is remarkably simple to use.

We use both
and ResellerRatings, as they handle slightly different aspects of services (product versus service).
Read full review Return on Investment This has had a positive impact on the way the company identifies user issues and complaints more easily/readily. The negative impact is that departments seem to put a lot more expectations on our customers than this tool can provide (e.g., replies and follow-up), meaning that we aren't as able to provide additional information when requested. It's uncertain whether responding to reviews adds a lot of value when all is said and done. Reviewers rarely adjust their ratings, even if/when we sufficiently address their concerns or resolve issues. Read full review ResellerRatings has had a positive impact on ROI by allowing us to quickly gather user ratings/reviews and integrate the aggregate review with Google's paid search ads (via star ratings showing in ads) ResellerRatings has also had a positive impact on our business by allowing us to collect reviews and display on our website without the need for internal development resources and IT work (which would have been very costly for us). One thing we had wanted to accomplish through the use of ResellerRatings was to display reviews on our website and provide that detail to Google in a consumable format which would result in star ratings showing in our organic search results. However, we were not able to accomplish this and Google never picked up our rating from the ResellerRating's widgets, so that was a bit of a letdown. Read full review ScreenShots
