Our client, one of the largest NetSuite SuiteCommerce Advanced Clients in Houston, Texas, with $128M in annual revenue, shared a problem faced with many comparable e-Commerce websites of this size – connecting customers with specific items they want. With a webstore of over 15,000 items, it was apparent that a simple SuiteCommerce website search bar categorized by keywords alone would not be sufficient to help customers navigate the massive online listings. Furthermore, the existing search bar was not intuitive and did not leverage unique cross-selling opportunities such as trending searches, adding personalized search history, top product categories…and many more features.
GIR Software Services was tasked with a sizeable challenge – to enrich the existing website search functionality to make it more intuitive and insightful, to get the customers to the items they want while enhancing the shopping experience.
To achieve all of our project objectives while maintaining stakeholder expectations, GIR Software Services adopted a three-phase agile approach to the project. In Phase 1, GIR Software Services would review and enhance the existing search algorithm through prioritization, intuitive keywords, and meticulous regression testing. In Phase 2, search features would be enhanced to leverage cross-selling opportunities such as “Top Searched Products” and “Top Searched Categories” to enrich the shopping experience and accelerate the buying process. In Phase 3, GIR Software Services continuously improved the website search by improving performance, improving the UI/UX design, and leveraging modernized features used by the top e-Commerce websites.
