For years top B2C and B2B brands like BJ’s Wholesale Club, Swanson Health Products, Signet Jewelers, Motion (Motion.com) and many others have been benefiting from the modern eCommerce search platform that GroupBy offers which appeals to today’s demanding shopper needs. GroupBy’s search platform drastically improves the omnichannel customer experience, resulting in impressive revenue boosts, improved conversions and average order values.
