Pros and Cons

  • It's very easy to implement. The documentation is great and you can be up and running very quickly.
  • It's easy to configure. The web-based user interface makes it super simple to configure (i.e. customize search rankings, edit synonyms, etc.).
  • Their support is very friendly and helpful. Whenever I had a question or couldn't figure something old, they were quick to help me out.
  • There is no way to customize the indexed fields of PDF and Word documents.
  • It can take a while to index a large web site with hundreds of thousands of pages.
  • There is no way to bulk delete pages from the index via the web admin UI.
  • There isn't a good module for using Swiftype with Drupal 8 Search API.

Pros and Cons

  • Swiftype helps with providing search results at a very rapid pace. Since our industry is in financial services, this plays a major role.
  • Swiftype also has a very good integration setup with the websites as well as mobile applications.
  • The API's we use are configurable and customizable. Hence, we can use it differently for mobile and web apps.
  • Swiftype also provides analytics of geographical information of search results. This is very critical from troubleshooting prospective in-case of issues.
  • Swiftype does not have indexes ready to go. When you add a new website to the search set, it takes some time to index the website. This is something that is different from what Google does. Google in this particular aspect does a relatively better job.
  • Swiftype is very expensive, this makes it difficult for smaller companies to afford.
