Automatic search optimisation continuously improves the results thanks to Machine Learning. The Suggest module also helps to display suitable products, categories and manufactures, as well as search term suggestions -all within the search bar.

Artificial Intelligence

“What sets FACT-Finder apart from the other site search solutions is its built in AI capability,” says FinancesOnline. Personalisation, semantic enhancer, Predictive Basket, recommendation engine and actionable analytics – all benefit from AI. An example is FACT-Finder’s Predictive Basket which is able to predict from the second visit which products are most likely to be purchased. Before a customer runs out of certain consumables, the Predictive Basket reminds them to reorder – whether that be by email, on the home page, or during checkout. Everything that a customer wants to order again can simply be added to the shopping cart through the intuitive drag-and-drop tool. All of this without having to search for anything, and eliminating the possibility of forgetting something important.
