Search – How does it work at Locayta?


Search-Driven Merchandising:  Generally, Search-Driven Merchandising, sometimes known as ‘Searchandising’ uses what the user has searched for or what has been discovered in the search results, to change the behaviour of the site. Locayta Search learns from what customers are searching for and installs features including intelligent navigation, predictive type-ahead and the unique Locayta Balance Factor® technology. This which allows retailers to adjust search results based on metrics such as margin, popularity, newness to site and stock availability. All configurations and strategic implementations are editable via a Control Panel, giving retailers complete control over the behaviour of Locayta Search on their sites.

Head of eCommerce Chris Griffin at existing client Superdry, says, “We undertook extensive research to find a system that could improve our search and merchandising performance. Locayta offered the perfect combination of tools for the job. It’s essential that our international sites compete effectively with localised providers. Locayta delivers the same high-grade performance regardless of which country the site is operating in. The ability to maintain superior search and category performance on a totally multilingual basis has generated phenomenal, if not unprecedented success for us. Our international eCommerce strategy has experienced four figure growth”.
