"Despite intelligent personalization and recommendations on sales histories, our users want to retain control in their stores," says Martin Koch, Customer Excellence Manager at FACT-Finder, and adds: "We’ve noticed a need for a new user interface during our talks with our customers. Thanks to the feedback we were able to make the new release even more customer- and user-friendly."

Store managers can use it to perform specific queries clearly and in a structured manner, which give information about the search behavior of customers, identify current trends and, of course, determine the revenue per search term.
