- The UK's largest pure online jewelry retailer, The Diamond Store, is using SLI Systems' full-service search and navigation solutions to create an engaging, high-converting shopping experience across its website
- Visitors who interact with SLI search and navigation features represent 30% of the site's customers; these shoppers convert at twice the rate of visitors who don't use these features
- The Diamond Store provides a deep set of refinement options on both search and navigation giving customers many options for finding products that meet their specifications
LONDON, May 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SLI Systems (www.sli-systems.co.uk) today announced that The Diamond Store (www.thediamondstore.co.uk) is using its full-service site search and navigation solutions to improve the user experience and increase customer engagement by creating a consistent search-based experience with deep refinement options across its eCommerce site.
The Diamond Store, the largest online jeweler in the UK, is seeing higher conversion rates for site visitors who interact with site search, and category and navigation webpages powered by its SLI's Learning Search; visitors who interact with SLI features convert at double the rate of visitors who don't.
The Diamond Store previously had a homegrown site search solution, but chose SLI for its intelligent search that "learns" from past user behaviour, and its flexible ways to create a broad set of refinements. By incorporating search refinement options on navigation pages – and leveraging site search results to populate navigation and category pages – The Diamond Store can help customers narrow down product options based on price range, gemstone, metal type, band style, occasion, and many more. The Diamond Store is also using SLI to manage search and navigation on its mobile site.
"SLI's search is so powerful that we have embedded it into almost every aspect of our site. We have found this to be an ideal way to create a highly user-friendly and engaging site – particularly for something like high-end jewelry, which can be a difficult purchase to make online," said Gary Ingram, managing director of The Diamond Store. "The many options for filtering results, and the use of search results on category and navigation pages, make it much easier for customers to find items of interest, and the quick view windows and videos incorporated into search results help them get a good look at an item so it's easier to make a purchase. SLI's expert team has helped us tremendously in delivering such a satisfying shopping experience."
