  • We have saved time using it across different features
  • It has provided an easy way to deliver an important feature to our end users

  • Users who had abandoned our product (attributing slow search speeds as the reason) returned to us thanks to Algolia
  • We used Algolia as our product's backbone to relaunch it, making it the center of all search on our platform which paid off massively.
  • Considering we relaunched our product, with Aloglia functioning as its engine, we got a lot of press coverage for our highly improved search speeds.
  • One negative would be how important it is to read the fine print when it comes to the technical documentation. As pricing is done on the basis of records and indexes, it is not made apparent that there is a size limit for your records or how quickly these numbers can increase for any particular use case. Be very wary of these as they can quite easily exceed your allotted budget for the product.

  • 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.

  • Algolia has allowed us to make content on our app more discoverable than before. We used to have more naive search implementations, but since implementing Algolia, we've seen several metrics go up
  • Average user session length has gone up ~25%
  • Average items viewed per customer has increased
  • Overall number of transactions has also gone up
