At the beginning of a buying journey, buyers typically know or have a good idea of what they’re looking for, proven by the fact that 92% of B2B purchases and 43% of B2C visits on retailers’ e-commerce sites start in the search bar [Forrester, Forrester]. What’s more, 39% of buyers are influenced by relevant searches [Think with Google], meaning the ability to narrow down their search and provide recommendations that help them find the right products at the right point in time will significantly impact order values and merchant profitability as add-to-cart and conversion rates increase. Getting search and personalisation right is an essential competitive advantage, and can increase revenue as much as 6-10% according to BCG research. This is why a state-of-the-art search offering remains central to the modernisation of SAP Commerce Cloud, to support our customers in growing their online business and achieving their goals.
Search Service for SAP Commerce Cloud is a cloud native offering providing a modern architecture with all the associated benefits, such as faster-time-to-market, automated updates, scalability and improved performance. The core logic remains configurable to allow customers to quickly take advantage of capabilities delivered out-of-the-box, while customisations are moved into a side-by-side extension framework for flexible implementation of custom requirements. It provides comparable search capabilities with SOLR search, such as:
- Navigation, filtering, and faceting, with unique filtering options per product catalog and category;
- Extensive search functions, including faceted search, boosting, grouping, filtering, and sorting;
- …and more.
In addition, the future Search Service roadmap includes new and innovative smart search deliverables, such as personalisation and AI-powered query suggestions.
So, what does all of this mean to you as a customer?
With the general availability of Search Service, planned for 2024, you will have the option to migrate fully or partially from SOLR search (or other search providers) to Search Service to take advantage of a modern setup with automatic updates delivering new search innovations.
Joining the Beta program is an exiting opportunity to get early access and insights into the latest modernisation of SAP Commerce Cloud, where you will get access to your own Search Service tenant to integrate and test on your test environments. This gives you the opportunity to work closely with and get support from our development team and also provide feedback to influence the future direction of search capabilities.
