NEW YORK — Donde Search, which transforms the online shopping experience using a breakthrough Visual Discovery Technology for e-commerce, today announced it has partnered with REVOLVE, the next generation retailer for fashion-savvy millennial consumers, to power visual product discovery on REVOLVE.com
Donde’s visual discovery technology allows shoppers to find products by simply clicking icons that represent the features they want in an outfit — ranging from the length and fit of a skirt to the neckline or sleeve style of a shirt. Now any shopper looking for tops, pants, or dresses on REVOLVE will be able to search for products based on how they actually look, rather than be limited to their knowledge of fashion terminology when searching.
Classic visual search requires users to upload an image of a product they are looking for, but few shoppers have the technical acumen or take the time to do that. Donde automates that whole process, simplifying the search and navigation to help users shop the way they think visually. Donde AI-powered Visual Discovery technology not only helps shoppers, but it also benefits the retailer across multiple parts of the business, including automating merchandising processes and product enrichment. Retailers can now upload new catalog items faster and enrich their data for an enhanced discovery.
“REVOLVE has quickly become one of the premier trendsetters and its high-end, fashion-centric customers want to find the specific items they are looking for as fast as possible,” said Liat Zakay, founder and CEO of Donde. “We are excited to partner with innovative retailers like REVOLVE who react to their consumers’ online behavior and share our vision of making Visual Discovery the standard for the shopping experience.”
“After partnering with Donde, we’ve seen an increase in conversions as high as 16 percent in key categories for our business,” said Michael Mente, co-founder and CEO of REVOLVE. “As the leading fashion retailer for millennials, visual discovery is critical to providing an authentic online shopping experience. We are taking the guesswork out of shopping for our customers.” In a controlled AB-test, Revolve measured statistically significant increases in conversion rates ranging from 11 to 16 percent in their Dresses, Tops and Pants categories.
“If our customer does not have a way to find what she likes, she’s likely to move on to the next app or site vying for her attention. It’s absolutely necessary to enable her an intuitive discovery and find what she wants in few taps, and this partnership with Donde makes that experience not only possible, but seamless,” said Grace Hong, VP of Product and Design of REVOLVE.
