A Buyer’s Guide to the Enterprise Search Software market

G2 defines enterprise search as “the organized retrieval of stored business data within an organization, wherein users can securely enter and find data across enterprise databases.” 

This year, G2 expanded this definition to include that “Enterprise search software can also provide search as a service capabilities, allowing businesses to securely expose select data and information sources (including product catalogs, videos, and marketing content) to external sources, such as mobile applications and websites. Through indexing, users are given the ability to search this data to find what they are looking for” to support key aspects of the customer journey including research, discovery, purchase and/or post-purchase activities. 

This is where Algolia shines by fulfilling user search needs and powering search and discovery experiences that connect consumers with the content and services they seek via web, mobile or voice. Algolia enables customers to intuitively and quickly find what they want, as well as inspires them to stay longer, engage further and explore deeply—ultimately leading to higher click-through rates and more conversions.
