Alokai and Bloomreach join forces to make online shopping a meaningful, personal experience

July 1, 2021

Bloomreach , the API-centered platform focused on increasing digital experience for eCommerce, which just recently was valued at $900 million, became our official partner! Together, we will support eCommerce businesses in making them more experience-led direction and cater to consumers. 

With a set of goals in common, collaboration was inevitable. As a Frontend as a Service , Alokai aims to gather the best-of-breed services under one neat umbrella. Bloomreach, being one the most praised and recognized players in the eCommerce world, was - so far - the missed element in that puzzle. We needed to fix it.

The timing couldn’t be better, as pandemic-caused changes in customers’ online behaviors forced or - to be precise - accelerated shifting thinking of eCommerce technology.

This MACH-oriented approach allows composing software from the variety of different services that are needed at the time. They can be added and removed at any time according to whatever the current customers want. 

And that level of personalization is at the heart of what Bloomreach has always done. The company has long been focused on helping brands and retailers increase revenue by providing them with content tools, advanced search capabilities, marketing automation, and web optimization mechanisms that are powered by data and built for commerce. It is a lot, but - in a nutshell -  Bloomreach is all about personalizing customer experiences based on data. 

At Bloomreach, we’re focused on ensuring businesses have the tools they need to optimize the experiences they deliver, and a growing number of businesses are turning to API-first, headless architectures to deliver fast, nimble digital experiences. An important component of that is fast and easy to use front-end hosting and experience acceleration, which is why we are excited to partner with Alokai. The combination of Bloomreach and Vue means clients can leverage modern agile development strategies, best-in-class site performance, great tools for merchants and marketers, and powerful AI to drive personalized and optimized experiences that convert.
