Integration Overview

On the back-end, Algolia's integration indexes Commerce Cloud products and categories to make them searchable and power advanced navigation experiences. Using Algolia's API clients or its Crawler, customers can also index content from multiple Salesforce clouds including Community Cloud, allowing them to build unified experiences surfacing products, editorial content and more.

On the front-end, Algolia's integration allows two approaches: it natively integrates with SFRA's Storefront and replaces the native search and navigation experience to provide fast, relevant, and personalized experiences for online shoppers, that can be customized using a comprehensive, open source Javascript framework and pre-existing widgets. Commerce Cloud customers can also easily build completely new experiences using Algolia's API clients, front-end libraries and extensive documentation, on any device and channel.

Users of Algolia's integration for Commerce Cloud have access to Algolia's user friendly dashboard to manage the experience, including launching promotional campaigns across channels, or merchandising specific keywords or category pages via a visual merchandising tool, managing the relevance algorithm, managing the personalization algorithm, launching A/B tests, and more.
