Search & Filter

Module for Base Sales Marketing Customer Journey Process Control Expansion

The largest product range is of no use if customers cannot find the articles they need. The Search & Filter module, on the other hand, makes it easy for your customers: with a full text search of all product data, hit sorting according to highest relevance and sales figures, feature filtering, grouping...

The Search & Filter module makes searches findable

  • Search via a quick search field across all product data or expert search with individual search fields for name, description, manufacturer, price and other features

  • Autocompletion / Search as you type: During the search input, articles, categories or manufacturers are already suggested.

  • Post-filtering / after search navigation on the basis of any article characteristics or article categories and product groups

  • Synonym support and typo correction so that your customers will find items even if they have mistyped or use words that do not appear in the item description.

  • So that your customers do not lose track of many hits, the search results are automatically sorted so that the most relevant ones for the user are displayed first. The system considers various factors such as sales figures, click rates, product groups, keywords, etc.

  • High-performance: Even with huge product ranges, the search function delivers suitable results in less than 200ms. For example, one of our customers has over 40 million searchable articles in his assortment! This does not interrupt the performance, the search results appear lightning fast, i.e. significantly less than half a second.

The technical basis for the module is a so-called search index. This is a kind of table of contents for your product data, which makes it possible to determine products with certain properties and search words within milliseconds. To generate this, we use the standard software Apache Lucene™, which we have extended with various functions for the IconParc platform.

Through this architecture we relieve your database (which can therefore process other queries faster) and deliver highly relevant search results without noticeable delay.

Speed is the trump card in two ways:
Users love fast page access, and that's why Google rewards you with a much better ranking.
