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.

Dynamic Yield

We’re running on a Single Page Application, so we were looking to partner with a technology vendor who can seamlessly integrate with SPA environments and allow us to dynamically modify, test, and personalize various elements on our app screens. Prior to Dynamic Yield, we were working with Optimizely and encountered huge challenges integrating with our SPA infrastructure.

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.

Dynamic Yield

  • Provide fantastic support, both in relation to strategy/best practice and troubleshooting.
  • An easy to use interface, as a user who is relatively new to Dynamic Yield I find that it is an intuitive platform to use.
  • The ability to segment and drill down on data allows for really specific insights which, whilst not necessarily being leveraged on a testing basis, can be super valuable from a greater marketing perspective.

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
Michael Riess | TrustRadius Reviewer

Dynamic Yield

  • Greater flexibility for the out of the box templates - things such as typeface are not consistent and can require developer time to ensure a seamless site experience
  • Exporting datasets don't necessarily reflect the way Dyanmic Yield is implemented on site, occasionally requiring that you go through experience by experience to extract the data you want
  • I would like to see a more customizable homepage dashboard with the ability to modify the content of widgets, showing trends across multiple experiences rather than just being able to update the timeframe for a widget between Yesterday, Past 7 Days, or Past 30 Days before having to deep dive into a full report

Overall, the interface is not difficult to understand. Although to create campaigns or define strategies for recommendations, some study is required.
Also, some reports are hidden, you really need to know where to look in order to see them (e.g. strategies performance or email campaigns performance).
Also, there is a lack of context help that would improve a lot the usability, especially when you face a feature or a report for the first time.

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.

Allison Schwartz, Customer Success Manager at Dynamic Yield has been nothing less than amazing and stellar! She really sets the standard for customer success and support. Their technical support is fast and reliable, and their educational resources are top of the line

Alternatives Considered

Algolia

Easiness to set up and maintain, our team at the moment we compared them was small and we were in an exploratory phase in the search engine feature. We needed to deploy something to our users quickly to start learning and avoid spending time in infrastructure configurations (like security) and Algolia provided all of this out of the box.

Dynamic Yield

  • Oracle Maxymiser is very clunky and hard to code with. Previewing changes was a challenge and development for fixes were slow
  • Optimizely - Great for coding. Fast and efficient. Everything worked great. They were limited at personalization triggers though and their costs were expensive.
  • Monetate - Evaluated but their UI was hard to use.

Return on Investment

Algolia

  • Algolia is very fast but also very expensive. However, the size of our organization is very huge, so cost is not much of a problem.
  • Algolia does not support iPhone and Android. This is a major issue, which is why we were considering moving to swiftype.
  • Since it has integration issues, we could not fully leverage the software.

  • Most tests have had a positive impact on either revenue or conversion rate - quite often in double digits.
  • Dynamic Yield has also helped us to stop some particular initiatives through direct interaction with the customer base via questionnaires or by a test proving negative quicker than rolling out a permanent feature.
