Lots of search engines donít consider some crucial elements while providing suggestions - the context of the information being searched, relevance ranking for suggestions, and so on. This is where SearchAI SmartSuggest comes in.

Weíre all so familiar with the search box. It lives on our phones, on websites and pretty much everywhere. When weíre looking for, lets say, a product, we take out our phones and start searching for it. A few letters in, the search starts giving you suggestions as to what you might be looking for and more often than not you would select one of those suggestions and move forward.

This entire activity is so mundane that we
donít even realize how these search suggestions form one of the most crucial
aspects of the whole search experience.

Suggestions, or auto-suggest as its often
referred to, uses the partial search terms that a user is typing in to complete
the rest of the search query so the user can simply select the search query
from a dropdown box in the search form.

Lots of search engines donít consider some
crucial elements while providing suggestions - the context of the information
being searched, relevance ranking for suggestions, and so on.

This is where SearchAI SmartSuggest comes in.

SearchAI SmartSuggest is built to provide
suggestions for search queries because it understands the context and how
theyíre related to the actual content on your website.

This is achieved using several cutting edge
machine learning algorithms that comb through all the data on your website,
determine the most relevant ones, prepare suggestions, rank them and then work
in real time to determine which suggestion should be provided when the user
starts typing.

SearchAI SmartSuggest is built for people who
are looking to make their lives simpler. Thatís why thereís nothing to install
or maintain. To integrate, all you have to do is paste a snippet of code into
your existing search solution and thatís pretty much all you need to do to
start getting smart suggestions in your search box.

On top of all this, SearchAI SmartSuggest
comes with spell corrections and support for multiple languages so that your
users do not have to struggle with putting in the correct spelling for
complicated terms. Suggestions are provided even with incorrect user entries.

Business use cases for SearchAI SmartSuggest include ecommerce, customer support, self service and enterprise search. Achieve an increase of upto 30 percent in search findability just by switching to SearchAI SmartSuggest which prompts users with the right search queries for contextually relevant results. As SmartSuggest search suggestions are extracted from your own content, users will  typically find the information they are looking for on the first search results page, thereby reducing the time needed to navigate through multiple search result pages. The benefit of SearchAI SmartSuggest? Quicker access to your products, information and documents.
