Behavioural Algorithms


Locaya Freestyle Merchandising employ complex behavioural algorithms to monitor user behaviour and to respond through visual displays across many interfaces including search results, category pages, display advertising, email marketing and product recommendations. The technology is able to gather both collective intelligence from all on-site users, providing an overall perspective of customer behaviour, as well as more personalised recommendations based on an individual’s past and present behaviour. Locayta is then able to user actions on your site, using a weighted user-journey associating weights for each user action; for example viewed, searched for, added to basket and checked-out. This means that product displays across the interfaces discussed are based on what has been searched for, viewed, added to basket and purchased by the user in relation to both that users’ previous actions and the actions of all the other users of the site.

A review from Prezzybox.com


Locayta client Prezzybox says, “It’s been a revelation. We have total control. We use Locayta’s Balance Factor technology to adjust the weighting of search and category results, meaning that as well as responding to user behaviour we can add our own stock control and promotional strategies into the mix. We have the ability to create filter criteria to match seasonal promotions, gift categories and internal variables. Most crucially, because every decision we make can be applied automatically across every category we’ve eliminated any margin for error and ensured that our customers experience accurate results every time. It’s no exaggeration to say that we saw conversion rates increase overnight when we started using Locayta.”
