Today we are pleased to announce our most recent addition to the Lucidworks family: the ecommerce experts at Cirrus10!!
We’ve partnered with the amazing folks at Cirrus10 for the past two years to serve many of our customers. And now, we are happy to combine their domain expertise with ours to give our customers more targeted solutions for different verticals in the fast-moving ecommerce landscape.
“As the experts in using search and AI to personalize user experiences, we want to be able to translate brand experiences to digital experiences, which requires more subvertical knowledge. We realized that we could be doing even more for our customers,” says Will Hayes, Lucidworks CEO.
“The objectives of each customer whether apparel, home goods, travel, or hospitality, are unique, and we want to become a partner in understanding the strategic imperatives of those goals,” Hayes adds. “Cirrus10 has been integral in moving beyond Lucidworks Fusion’s AI-powered search capabilities to understand and impact what brands are doing in the verticals they serve. By acquiring Cirrus10, we can go beyond technology to understand the distinct demands of these organizations and move objectives forward more effectively.”
Cirrus10 was founded in 2010 by a team with decades of ecommerce expertise working with search platforms including Apache Solr, Lucidworks Fusion, and Endeca.
“We felt an instant kinship with Lucidworks when we began our partnership in 2018,” says Peter Curran, Cirrus10 co-founder. “Fusion is the world’s only platform for extensible AI-driven search. Fusion elevated our service offerings by giving us a framework for exploring machine learning with our customers, and using it, we can build personalized and scalable relevancy models without a black box or army of data scientists. Combining Lucidworks search and AI expertise with our deep experience in the ecommerce space we can cement our role as digital commerce solution leaders.”
This announcement comes after a record year for Lucidworks in 2019, including significant funding in August 2019 to support company growth, product development, and territory expansion. The Cirrus10 acquisition enables us to provide even more value to customers and empower them to create an online customer experience that drives their bottom line.
