"Reflektion has already demonstrated a dramatic impact on e-Commerce through more than two billion personalized shopping experiences in 2015. Today we are converting more traffic on our clients' websites to customers.

As a part of this funding, Dharmesh Thakker, General Partner, Battery Ventures will join Reflektion's Board of Directors.

By leveraging cutting-edge, open-source platforms in the big-data arena, Reflektion is fundamentally driving Individualized Commerce and delivering stunning ROI for retailers".

Reflektion is the contrivance of Amar Chokhawala, an ex-Google employee.
