Please describe the story behind the company: What sparked the idea, and how has it evolved so far?About 20 years ago, I was involved in a major project for the state of Virginia that took a very complex process and automated it to put it online. It was the first of its kind in the US and was studied by other countries. This project opened my eyes to the capabilities of the internet for connecting people and creating transactions. I started selling products on eBay in the early days and then began selling on Amazon. While I enjoyed eCommerce, I found that my true passion was solving seller problems. I initially created eComEngine as a consulting business that created custom software to help sellers save time. In addition to creating software, my team and I were building Amazon web stores for our customers. Lockheed Martin needed assistance creating a web store in order to compete for a large government contract. Amazon recommended eComEngine. We enjoyed the work, but after the contract was won we realized that we weren’t energized by federal contract work. Our focus shifted to moving all-in with Software as a Service (SaaS) with our flagship product, FeedbackFive. FeedbackFive sends automated feedback and review requests. Created in 2007, it was the first software of its kind on the market. It began as a custom solution, but demand was so strong that it was clear there was a need for this software. Amazon sellers need strong seller feedback metrics in addition to product reviews to be successful. We took a tedious and time-consuming process and made it repeatable as well as customizable. We’ve always had a strong partnership mindset. Ultimately, we want our customers to be successful and we’re here to help them solve their problems.

Please tell us about your software solutions and what makes them unique?FeedbackFive
FeedbackFive is the #1 rated Feedback and Reviews Software in the Amazon Appstore. Both seller feedback (based on a buyer’s experience with a third-party seller) and customer reviews (based on a buyer’s experience with a product) are crucial. While sellers can send individual requests for feedback and reviews from Seller Central, the process is time-consuming with little reward.
FeedbackFive makes it easy to automate custom templated requests that are specific to the overall brand or each product. The software also allows sellers to automate the Amazon Request a Review message, which is 100% compliant with all Amazon policies.
Amazon sellers can also monitor product reviews with FeedbackFive. Detailed analytics make it easy to identify positive or negative trends, filter review data, see top products, and more. Sellers can receive alerts for new reviews or feedback via text or email. Sales and order volume data is also available in FeedbackFive.
