)-- Upshot Commerce, a provider of on-demand, fully customizable ecommerce software solutions, recently announced new search system integration with Solr from the makers of Apache. This new integration allows users of the Upshot Commerce Core Platform to improve their website search functionality with Solr’s popular faceted onsite search solution.
Faceted or guided search allows the consumer to refined searches dynamically with layered navigation, narrowing down a search by parameters such as color, size or specific keywords. Features such as auto complete and spelling suggestions help to refine searches accurately. “Solr’s faceted search is intended to be more dynamic, more interactive and more in tune with the ways that people think and navigate websites,” says Upshot Commerce CEO Neal Kaiser. “Plus, Solr is lightning fast.”
Not only is Solr’s faceted search a more user-friendly search system, it is also highly adaptable. “Solr’s open source functionality allows it to be easily configured to just about any Upshot Commerce ecommerce website, regardless of system requirements,” says Derek Stringfellow, Chief Business Development Officer of Upshot Commerce.
Solr’s innovative design also makes it an ideal integrated marketing tool for Upshot Commerce retailers. “With the ability to assign weighted priority and customize full text searching, retailers can choose to push certain products within search results,” says Milanie Cleere Chief Marketing Officer at Upshot Commerce. “All of these features mean better search results for the customer and increased conversion for the retailer.”
