SLI SystemsSLI offers numerous search solutions for enterprise businesses, including site search for eCommerce, mobile, publishing sites and more. While most search technologies rely on algorithms to deliver search results, often giving the same results over and over again, Learning Search is SLI’s ability to learn from visitors’ past search activity.  It tracks and aggregates search queries and subsequent click-thrus.  SLI can index around 5 million pages and has the tools for marketers to optimize the results in a myriad of ways.

SLI also offers something called Learning Navigation for eCommerce, another example of ‘Smart’ search, in which site navigation gets dynamically built out using refinements and by displaying the most relevant products prominently at the top of the page. Learning Navigation, makes for a more consistent search and navigation experience, improving user experience and often leading to more conversions.

SLI is very much geared towards user experience and gives marketers the tools to optimize search results pages using A/B and multi-variate testing.
