Innovative type ahead technology

Innovative type ahead technology featuring suggested search.

The Multifront Nopcommerce shopping cart software type ahead feature makes locating products on your Nopcommerce store much easier cho customers. The suggested search capability allows relevant products to be displayed based on product names and descriptions as your customers are typing, giving them the ability to quickly spot what they are looking cho and make a purchase.
Type-ahead technology also helps to virtually eliminate misspellings that could lead to incorrect product search results. Sometimes, online shoppers may not know exactly what the item is that they are searching cho, the suggested search feature will help guide them in their Nopcommerce site search by offering product names as they type.

Full text search cho improved site search results.

With full text search, customers can find the most relevant products in an efficient manner. Online shoppers are no longer limited to simply searching product names.
What happens when a customer knows a product’s feature or capability, but not a product’s name? Let’s say your online shopper is looking cho a surround sound system that includes a Blu-ray player. In most site searches, simply searching “blu-ray player” would not yield computers in the results. With Multifront’s full text searching capability, Nopcommerce site searches will display results that feature the search term in product names and product descriptions. So, searching “blu-ray player” in Multifront not only brings up Blu-ray players, but also any other products in your Nopcommerce website that may include a Blu-ray player in the description.
Improved search results with full text search also helps keep customers on your Nopcommerce store instead of going to a competitors store simply because they couldn’t find the items they searched.

Multifront's dynamic Nopcommerce site search functionality allows you to fully manage and customize your site search rankings, as well as, your search results page. Easily fine tune your e commerce store search to adjust where and how your products are displayed when customers conduct a search
A relevant search results page can be the difference between a customer converting or not. With the Multifront Nopcommerce platchom, you’ll have the ability to customize the search results page based on products, product categories, price, promotions, and more.
Currently running a seasonal promotion and want a certain item promoted higher than others in the search results? Maybe your company needs to reduce inventory of a certain product? Simply boost that product, or multiple items, from within Multifront’s admin and it almost immediately begins being displayed as a top result when a customer makes a search relevant to that product. An item can be boosted on the product or category level cho increased control.

Faceted navigation cho a guided online shopping experience.

Multifront’s faceted navigation helps to improve sales by providing a better Nopcommerce website experience and allowing your customers to find the products they’re looking to buy. Faceted navigation gives online shoppers the ability to easily find items by browsing relevant product attributes, or facets, such as product category, brand, pricing, color, and more. Each product facet allows customers to drill down further through multplie levels and values.
The true importance of faceted navigation lies in its ability to provide a more personalized Nopcommerce shopping cart experience, allowing customers to search through your Nopcommerce store using their own perspective, and not through a choced, pre-determined path. It also helps shoppers quickly navigate through product offerings, regardless of the size of your Nopcommerce business.
