Today, we’re thrilled to announce our Cartridge for Salesforce Commerce Cloud. Algolia and Salesforce customers now can easily adopt a unified headless architecture to create innovative product-based experiences on every channel — from websites and mobile applications to voice-enabled technology and kiosks — to drive more customer engagement and conversions.
“Algolia plays a key role in Ubisoft’s online experience. We’ve had great results using Algolia, which has been really easy to integrate with Salesforce Commerce Cloud and manage configurations across different countries. We plan on extending the usage of Algolia from 5 to all 17 online stores in 2020. We have noticed a 35% higher conversion rate from search for the latest store where we integrated Algolia.”
– David Leveau, E-commerce project manager at Ubisoft
