We use Algolia for our search engine needs, this comprises our end users and also our internal users (Sales agents, operations teams, and so forth). It provides an easy way to iterate on search-related features with low development time and without needing a DevOps Engineer (at the time we started using we didn't even have a DevOps team)

Algolia is our exclusive solution to power website search, merchandising of product listing pages, and supporting A/B testing and optimization within these areas. We have integrated Algolia into our web analytics to provide visibility into the top customers' searches to help further define our strategy to optimize the user experience on our website for our customers. Algolia integrates exceptionally well into Adobe Magento, allowing us to take advantage of Algolia's best-in-class site search and product listing optimization without developing and integrating another custom solution. Algolia works exceptionally well within our headless PWA implementation, providing our developers with a seamless tool to support through our iterations.

Our company offers a few products of which the Volunteering product is the one which uses Algolia. Our product uses Algolia to power our hyperlocal search. It is a marketplace of volunteering activities and donation opportunities put up by our partner non-profits from which users can choose one according to their needs.

It is used across development departments as the API from searching different system entities.
We could have gone with our own Elasticsearch setup. However, this would require maintaining a dedicated cluster over multiple regions. That has operational cost. We would also need expertise on best practices in tuning the different indexes and keeping the service highly available.
We choose to let Algolia take care of out text search needs and only take care of keeping it synced.

Currently used as a search engine for our bill payment service www.paysimply.ca. Customers are using it to find the biller that they need to pay. The fuzzy logic works well and the search is better than anything we would have developed internally.

We use Algolia on one of our websites where you can search for an institution to pay. It has fast searches and handles misspelled queries which were the main reasons we chose this product instead of creating something similar ourselves.

We used Algolia at our organization to power search for all our users. We leveraged the speed and efficiency offered by Algolia to greatly improve the user experience on our site when it came to searching for different types of records. As search speed had previously been a glaring issue and one of the biggest weaknesses on our web platform, Algolia helped us circumvent this issue and offer our users the results they were looking for in mere nanoseconds.

Algolia is being used by our organization in specific departments. It is not being used by the entire organization. It is a strong search tool that is being leveraged across different internal and client facing products. It addresses some basic search optimization issues that would generally be resolved using complex algorithms.

Algolia powers all of our search functionality on our browse page and from the header across the site. Specifically, we use the react instant search package with a custom hierarchical menu for category selection and react locations for location selection and the default pagination. We also use Algolia for our search auto suggestions and recommendations. We also use Algolia to solve interesting business problems and tasks such as categorizing user-generated item titles.

Algolia is our go-to solution for searches on our iOS app, as well as our upcoming web app. We use it to allow users to search for other users as well as pre-defined location filters that we've created. Additionally, we use it in almost all of our internal tools, whose use-cases include content moderation, customer support, analytics, etc. Every person in our company and every one of our customers uses Algolia on a daily basis.

Algolia is being used site wide for customer facing search on all the Tanga Network properties. It makes it so our application developers don't have to configure or worry about configuring complicated search indexes. It allows marketing/product to tweak search results as necessary without development intervention.

We implement Algolia for our clients during website, app, and software development projects. Our biggest implementation was on a large eCommerce store with accompanying mobile app. Algolia offers a more premium search experience for end users, allows us to provide access to search results that are combined from several different platforms, and is lightning quick.
