Today, we are thrilled to announce that Boost Commerce has been acquired by AppHub, a leading eCommerce enablement platform serving 100,000 merchants across Shopify, WooCommerce, BigCommerce, and so on. This strategic acquisition is set to accelerate innovation at Boost and level up our products and services to serve online merchants better.
Boost's Journey So Far
The first line of code in the renowned Boost Product Filter & Search app (now known as Boost AI Search & Discovery) was written down by our founders back in 2016. Since then, the app has evolved from a handful of features to a complete solution fueled by advanced AI/ML technologies. Boost, at present, is among the top Shopify apps to grow conversion and enhance customer experience through seamless navigation and discovery.
To earn the recognition of global brands and industry leads like ALPHALETE, Crocs, and Tupperware, the Boost team always keeps moving forward with our features and support. The team comprises nearly 130 experienced tech experts, marketing enthusiasts, eager customer service agents, and more. From the first 100 installs in 2017, Boost AI Search & Discovery has approximately 14,000 paid users after 6 years. This is incredible to all Boosters!
Our journey won't stop there. With the help of AppHub and more than 25 other eCommerce solutions within this ecosystem, we look forward to unprecedented opportunities to sharpen our weapons and introduce them to more in-need merchants.
About Our New Home - AppHub
AppHub is the home to around 25 cutting-edge eCommerce solutions and serves more than 100,000 users globally. These innovative apps give online merchants a helping hand in a myriad of business aspects, for example, streamlining operations, enhancing customer engagement, boosting online presence, and, finally, making more sales.
Joining the AppHub family, Boost will be under the same roof as many other like-minded and well-known Shopify app providers, including REVIEWS.io, Conversion Bear, ViralSweep, and RoboTurk. We are going to expand the integration network in the near future so merchants can easily combine multiple apps to solve specific pain points.
“We have been on a mission to advance the future of e-commerce through software that enables merchant success. With the support of Silversmith and now PSG, and by bringing Boost and its incredible AI-powered technology into the AppHub fold, we believe we will be even better positioned to help e-commerce businesses accelerate their growth in an increasingly complex environment,”
said Kris Eng, co-founder and CEO of AppHub.
What Can You Expect From This Acquisition?
Becoming a member of AppHub won't alter our mission or the way the Boost team has been doing but giving it a gentle push. Our core values embrace Trust, Empathy, and Efficiency, and the ultimate goal is to help merchants leverage growth with technologies.
All the skilled and high-performing personnel and our founders are still here and “kicking". Our commitment to delivering exceptional service remains unwavering. We will consistently introduce new and inventive features while continuing to provide top-notch support for users.
In addition, the Boost team has the opportunity to benefit from the knowledge, expertise, and resources of AppHub and other partners in the ecosystem. This allows us to speed up our progress and implement improvements for merchants at a faster pace.
