E-commerce search and dynamic navigation: filters, facets, efficiency and speed


novomind iSHOP offers you an integrated search engine with dynamic filters and facets – out-of-the-box and with a basic configuration so ready to use immediately. The engine provides highly precise results and operates at maximum performance even with a large data volume.

Search and e-shop navigation always fully synchronised

The novomind iSHOP search engine uses the same data as the e-shop – from the “in-memory” memory. Shop and search, therefore, always have identical data status and there is no need for unnecessary synchronisation cycles. This means that the search is always extremely fast and up-to-date as well as the after search filter navigation – it is based on the same data status. Products which are, for example, sold out and are reported as not having any stock in the memory, can be directly concealed and these cannot be found via search /ASM. The customer, therefore, finds exactly what he is also able to buy – which also saves customers time and effort.

Personalised search for the optimum search result

With the novomind iSHOP search, each customer gets their own personalised results based on many parameters which are filtered in real time: items which can be delivered in the right size are shown at the top of the search result and not at the end. Women also see a different order than men. BI data from external systems can be used for this with any degree of complexity – the in-memory technology makes also this possible.

Extensive search and filter functionalities

With novomind iSHOP it is easy to find products, documents and content. Entry and spelling mistakes are corrected automatically out-of-the-box. The language-independency of the search engine guarantees continuous internationalisation.

Following functions can be supported out-of-the-box:

  • Always up-to-date product data
  • Facet navigation
  • Search suggest
  • Word stem formation, stop words, compound separation
  • Spelling mistake correction
  • Synonyms can be edited (adjusted)
  • Can set weighting of attributes (A/B test)
  • Search links
  • Content search
  • Access to search logs
  • SEO white list for search terms

External search engines

novomind iSHOP also supports the integration of external search engines e.g. FactFinder or Fredhopper through an efficient export. The use of an external search may be meaningful if optimally configured.
