Algolia

If you have a dedicated developer who has the technical know-how to delve deep into Algolia's documentation to figure out what makes it tick, this is the product for you. Algolia's framework is extremely powerful, making search instantaneous and providing users with results at break-neck speeds. If all you need is great search, but you do not require a complex relevancy algorithm running it, Algolia will work well for you. The more complex your use case, the more expensive the product becomes.

Barilliance

For any company that needs an immediate tool to address Abandonment email campaign needs that are not addressed in their current ESP, Barilliance is the tool for them. Any company seeking a robust, fully data-driven solution that provides personalization or dynamic experiences should look elsewhere. Many ESP's provide their own solutions, but if yours does not, Barilliance is a perfect fit.

Pros

Algolia

  • Algolia is brain-dead simple to set up. I've implemented search with Algolia in a dozen different ways now, and it never took me longer than a few minutes to get the functionality I want. With Algolia, the only challenge is designing your search UI -- if you don't want to use their baked in UI solutions.
  • Results come back incredibly fast. I'm not sure how Algolia does it, but every keystroke I make in a search field returns new results instantly. It's hard to believe that I'm searching large datasets on a remote server when it works so fast.
  • Very little customization is needed for 99% of use-cases. Algolia's out of the box setup works great, and it takes no prior knowledge to set up.

Barilliance

  • Barilliance displayed some of the best customer support I've had the pleasure of receiving. Their responses were timely and informative.
  • Barilliance provided us with a month to month contract which allowed us to make the right business decisions at the right time. Their price point was also extremely competitive.
  • While not the most robust solution, Barilliance hit all of the necessary functionality and activity to help us address our need for abandonment campaigns.

Cons

Algolia

  • Algolia can be a bit complex -- for smaller companies or companies without many tech resources, it may be difficult to implement and use without the help of a third party
  • Manually manipulating search results (for specific queries having listings show up first) is a bit difficult to do without custom developing that functionality

Barilliance

  • Barilliance has limited optimization potential. They do the basics of abandonment very well but do not have program growth tools in place.
  • Barilliance has a limited amount of data integrations available. For data-driven companies, some in-house solutions may need to be developed for full customer behavioral data.
  • The Barilliance Portal, while not being poorly designed, takes some getting used to, in addition to providing very little static support. This is addressed by their excellent customer service but can slow the self-help opportunities.

Support Rating

Algolia

Algolia 9.0
Based on 2 answers
We did have one occurrence where we maxed out our plan and the service didn't respond well. This is probably a very common scenario and it took half a day to get things back to normal with slow response time. Price is also a consideration. If you are restrained in that sense you might want to dedicate the time to having your own setup from the get-go.

Alternatives Considered

Algolia

Algolia at first seemed and proved to be the fastest compared to the other search engines. It is very easy to implement. Also, it had a 24x7 support which proved to be very useful. It is also useful for all types of clients weather it be organizations or individuals. It can also handle typos. It also focuses on features like API and SSL Security. Also, it is designed to search records, not pages. These were some of the reasons we went ahead with Algolia.

Barilliance

Barilliance filled a campaign gap that IBM Watson could not deliver effectively or cost-effectively. We recently moved ESP's and are now provided with a holistic email solution through Bronto. We are ecstatic to be working with Bronto, but I have very few negative things to say about our time with Barilliance.
