MOUNTAIN VIEW, California and LONDON, May 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Bloomreach, the leader in commerce experience™, today announced that it now powers over USD 200 Billion in digital commerce experiences, representing 25% of retail eCommerce in the U.S. and U.K. markets. These milestones were achieved in part due to Bloomreach customers' record growth in eCommerce, with the average customer up 36% in digital and online commerce revenue year-to-date, and on average up 44% in online revenue since March 1, 2020, the effective beginning of the coronavirus crisis in North America and the United Kingdom.

"We've long been on a mission to power exceptional commerce experiences - from search, to content, to leveraging our commerce-specific data and AI to help businesses optimize and personalize their digital channels. I'm very proud to have Bloomreach hit these milestones as eCommerce and curbside pickup become mission critical services for consumers globally."
