Global office retailer Staples needed to replace the ecommerce search on their Staples Preferred site that serves b2b customers. The search application had outgrown the original function based on Oracle’s Endeca and a new solution was needed that gave the team the flexibility to adapt to the ever-changing needs of their customers – and ecommerce managers. The development team used Fusion’s query pipelines to influence search result ranking through a combination of external data sources and relevancy rules. Business users leveraged Fusion’s relevancy workbench for A/B testing of query pipelines which decreased time to production.


Complete Data Independence

Don’t get tied to a vendor with all your data locked in a proprietary data model. Fusion’s extensible architecture gives you everything you need for more full customization and highly-tuned relevancy – and your data is never locked away because Fusion is built on an open core.


A Personalized Shopping Experience

Antiquated search apps do nothing with the deluge of user data you collect daily. Fusion’s creates a personalized experience with recommendations through the capture and aggregation of user behavior and other signals.


Advanced Search Capabilities

Shoppers expect a modern shopping experience that matches what they experience elsewhere on the web – and some legacy search apps haven’t had new features in nearly three years. As your business needs change, your search apps should be able to adapt. Fusion includes autosuggest/type-head, spellcheck, geo-spatial parameters, device-specific results, efficient synonym management and other advanced features so you can continue to refine the shopping experience for maximum conversions and customer satisfaction.
