Marketing and merchandizing leaders have to build a compelling business case for investing in a world-class site search experience.

This business case centers on 3 main components: First, reducing the cost to serve. Self-service has a direct and measurable impact on lowering cost per order and improving margins. All businesses have to invest in automating their purchasing process to allow their customers to manage their own transaction.

The second, incremental conversions. Separately, improvements to website search and merchandising provide small but important incremental improvements. Together, these increases offer a transformational conversion opportunity.

Third, the benefits of boosting buyer loyalty. Loyalty grows when sellers make it easier to find products and complete a transaction. Why? Buyers face enormous pressure to execute purchases quickly and economically. A personalized site search experience commands the highest customer loyalty by allowing customers to specify their needs and track purchase history.
