Impressed - we needed to set up a store locator within a tight deadline and this did the job well

Pros: Lots of options: once you've entered your locations you can use the default settings and it works fine but we wanted it to look and behave in a certain way. It took some tweaking but we were able to achieve everything we needed.

Using the software had a "nice" feel about it - it seemed logically laid out and it has something they call a "Deployment wizard" which guides you through the process of adding it your website (we were publishing it on a custom website but it seemed to have options for Wordpress, Shopify, Magento and others).

Lastly the actual store locator is really simple to use (we kept the interface to its bare minimum with just a "enter a zip code" box).

Cons: The settings can feel a bit overwhelming to begin with, and some of the "how to" guides could do with more screenshots to make things clearer.

Also we had one address that wouldn't geocode properly but the support sorted it out for us.

Pros: Easy to use with fantastic product support which is very responsive to resolving issues and receptive to feedback and suggestions.

Cons: Interface could be a little more intuitive.

Overall: Wanted an affordable store locator which could be embedded in my website simply and after much research, I chose Blipstar and I am happy I did. The features are all I need and the product support is so good seems it's almost instant .

Recommendations to other buyers: Choose the layout options wisely to ensure the interface you want keeping in mind is fairly customize-able.
