Findologic joins forces with Nosto

Findologic joins forces with Nosto

It’s finally official! We’ve joined forces with Nosto, the world’s leading Commerce Experience Platform (CXP).

When we first started talking about the idea of uniting with Nosto, I was surprised to discover how closely our visions for the future aligned. In fact, our internal strategy slides were almost identical, while the features were complimentary.

This presented a once in a lifetime opportunity for us because the unique strengths of each company complement each other extremely well. 

Findologic always pioneered when it came to onsite search, recently shown with our achievements around our AI Linguistic Shopping Assistant, not just focusing on the most relevant results, but also understanding the user’s intent and providing new ways of interaction with webshops.

Our product discovery story continues

This merger is the perfect fit. Why? Because we share the same mission as Nosto and want to ensure every online shopping experience is relevant, personalized, and dynamic. I’m thrilled we’re joining forces with Nosto and, together, shaping the future of online commerce experiences.  

What does this mean for you, our customers?

Firstly, nothing will change in the immediate. It’s business as usual.

You can continue to use the Findologic platform as you have done so and will continue to have a relationship with your current contact at Findologic. Your agreement will remain as is and you’ll continue to get the same commitment and value from Findologic post-acquisition. Over time, we will offer you the capability of using Nosto’s full CXP and its comprehensive personalization capabilities.

We are excited about the new opportunities this deal brings for Findologic customers. Being offered access to Nosto’s CXP will open up exciting avenues for you to benefit from a wide range of solutions that can help you achieve full-funnel personalization and deliver 1:1 commerce experiences for every shopper across every device. 

What does this mean for us, Findologic?

It means our entire staff is now part of the Nosto family and can even develop more and better solutions for you. Our HQ in Salzburg, Austria, will remain and serve as an R&D hub with product engineers and commercial teams, together serving the DACH market moving forward. Nosto supports its global customers from New York, Los Angeles, London, Paris, Berlin, Stockholm, Sydney, Kaunas, and Helsinki. We’re thrilled to be adding Salzburg and Munich to that list. 

Thank you!

We'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for trusting Findologic over the last 14 years. The entire team–from customer service managers, engineers, marketing, sales, product owners, and leadership–are all committed to making online commerce experiences ever more intuitive for the individual shopper. This commitment is only strengthened as we continue our journey with Nosto.

To help you react more quickly to errors in your data export, we have introduced a new function in our customer account. This function automatically informs you by email about an error and allows you to react immediately. The notifications are sent to the e-mail addresses defined in the Findologic account. You can change the address in the account or add additional recipients.

In our documentation „Frequent errors in the import/export process and how to handle them“ you will also find more information on the most common export errors and how to solve them.

Our existing monitoring system will of course continue to notify us internally if an error in the data reconciliation should require our intervention.

Learn more about our latest feature „Search Insights“: 

Search Insights helps our customers to debug search results and product listings on category pages on thier own. This helps them to understand the technology better and saves them a lot of time. Now Findologic customers are able to see in detail why certain products are found and shown based on specific search terms or categories. (so it works for product listings in search and navigation). They can add different parameters like user groups or sort parameters to the search request to see specific search results based on those parameters. All available data that is being exported for a certain product is shown in the Search Insghts interface – this helps our customers/agencies to optimize the whole user experience by optimizing their data based on this data analysis.

Hint from our Findologic experts: Shop Owners should – as always – focus on the Top Search Queries when doing their analysis proactively

Die Zukunft von Voice-Commerce

Die Zukunft von Voice-Commerce

Die Zukunft von Voice-Commerce

Die Zukunft von Voice-Commerce

Auch wenn das Thema Voice-Commerce bereits seit Jahren zu den Trends im E-Commerce zählt, gibt es momentan am Markt noch wenige Angebote, welche das Thema sinnvoll unterstützen. Matthias Heimbeck, Founder und CEO bei Findologic verfügt über langjährige Erfahrung im Bereich E-Commerce und neuen Technologien. Im folgenden Blogbeitrag stand er für ein kurzes Interview zur Verfügung, in welchem er das Thema Voice-Commerce genauer unter die Lupe nimmt und die Probleme und Lösungen dazu aufzeigt. 

Voice-Commerce ist ein Thema das den E-Commerce schon seit langer Zeit begleitet. Wann kommt der Durchbruch und warum ist es noch nicht perfekt umgesetzt worden?

Grundlegend zähle ich 3 Themen, welche zuallererst verbessert werden müssen, bevor das Thema “Voice-Commerce” den großen Durchbruch erlebt. 

Der richtige Lösungsansatz

Das Thema “Voice” wird immer noch mit eingetippter Sprache verglichen und die Lösungsansätze hierzu gehen auch meist in diese Richtung. Das ist jedoch ein großer Fehler, denn Voice-Commerce hat viel mehr Potenzial. Nehmen wir ein Beispiel: Bisher können im Online-Shop nur Dinge gemessen werden, mit welchen der Kunde interagiert und der Online-Shop auch anbietet, bei “Voice” ist das jedoch gänzlich anders. Es kann auch zu Anfragen kommen, welche noch nicht angeboten werden. Hierauf gilt es gänzlich anders zu reagieren. Zusätzlich warten wir noch auf den Durchbruch, weil diese Lösungen für User-freundlichen Umgang in der Menge noch nicht vorhanden sind. Es gibt zwar bereits einzelne erfolgreiche Projekte, welche praktikable Lösungen anbieten, aber vor allem in großen Online-Shops und Marktplätzen bekommt man hier wenig Weiterentwicklung zu Gesicht bzw. zu Gehör. 

Verbesserung der Usability 

Besteht für User keine Möglichkeit mit einem Tool zu interagieren, werden sie es auch nicht verwenden. Die offerierte Lösung muss so gut sein, dass User nicht mit einer Maschine reden, sondern eine sinnvolle Kommunikation wie mit einem Menschen führen können. Vor 10 Jahren stand Mobile-Commerce genau in der momentanen Situation von “Voice”. Nur ein Bruchteil der User besuchte den Online-Shop über ein Smartphone. Grund hierfür waren die Interfaces, welche noch nicht auf die neue Marktsituation angepasst waren und somit die User Experience fehlte. Mit rasant wachsender Nachfrage der User wird heute wie damals das Thema jedes Quartal neu beurteilt und somit Entwicklungen auch neue Prioritäten zugeschrieben.

Starte jetzt mit kleinen Schritten

Besonders im E-Commerce gilt es zu analysieren was Kunden haben wollen und wie man durch “Voice” einen Mehrwert bereitstellen kann. Wenn man das schafft, dann besteht die Chance einen Vorteil anbieten zu können, welcher auch genutzt wird. Die Möglichkeiten der Zukunft sind unbegrenzt. Die Kunst ist es damit anzufangen und Stellschrauben zu finden, welche man heute schon optimieren kann. Als ersten Schritte für Online-Shops empfehle ich zu analysieren, zu welchem Zeitpunkt potentielle Kunden abspringen, oder wann sie eine erneute Suchanfrage stellen. Diese Punkte iterativ zu untersuchen und zu optimieren ist wegweisend.

Sollte man diese 3 Themen verbessern bzw. lösen, steht dem Erfolgsweg von Voice-Commerce nur wenig im Weg und es wird in einigen Jahren, wie das Thema Mobile bereits heute, zum Standard eines jeden Online-Shops zählen.

Ich denke, dass Voice-Commerce in gewissen Bereichen den jetzigen Standard übernimmt. Besonders kleine Dinge, welche das tägliche Leben betreffen, werden in Zukunft durch solche Tools ersetzt.
