Overall Satisfaction with Endeca

Endeca is used by both our IT and Marketing departments. It is integrated with our eCommerce platform (Oracle Commerce/ATG) to aid in search and navigation functionality. It allows us to categorize products, accessories, add-ons, etc. which is helpful for up-selling and cross-selling within our product lines. Although it is not especially easy to use, it does solve a definite need for us.

Pros

  • It provides powerful search functionality.
  • It adds functionality for navigation which makes it much easier for customers to use our commerce site and find what they are looking for.

Cons

  • More documentation for the product would be very useful.
  • The product almost requires training in order to be able to use it effectively. Knowledge of HTML is a must.
If you have complex or highly-configurable products as we do, Endeca really fills a need. It really helps with navigation and the ability to drill down into options / accessories available based on selections already made. The indexing and search functionalities are also top-notch.

If your intended users of Endeca are not very tech-savvy or have HTML experience, you will almost certainly have struggles learning how to use the tool and make the most of it. Training will be necessary. Choose a solid implementation partner.
