SLI's customer base of more than 800 e-commerce sites worldwide now includes 84 of the IR Top 1000 retailers. This number is up from 72 the year before. Companies such as FTD, Harry & David, US-Mattress.com and Lakeshore Learning use SLI to improve conversion rates, increase sales and reduce site abandonment.

"With SLI, the changes we made to search and navigation have increased time on our site 21% and conversion rates 8.5%," said Sam Sarullo, VP of e-commerce for Lakeshore Learning, in an IR Top 500 interview with Internet Retailer. "People are more engaged and are exploring more of the products we offer. Personalizing the site, to draw people into areas most helpful for them, has been a big improvement."

SLI's patented Learning Search technology continually "learns" from past site search activity by tracking visitors' aggregate search queries and click-throughs, so shoppers can quickly find what they are seeking. The company's full set of features, including Rich Auto Complete and search suggestions, increase the number of products visitors see and improve the chances of making a sale. Other features let customers dive deep into product selection and pull out the details they need to make a decision.

"SLI is well poised for ongoing growth as we are in a market sweet spot. In fact, according to eMarketer, worldwide e-commerce sales are expected to increase a record 20% this year to reach $1.5 trillion," said Shaun Ryan, CEO of SLI Systems. "SLI powers world renowned e-commerce retailers with advanced site search to ensure shoppers can readily find the products they'd like to buy. Internet Retailer's Top 1000 retailers choose SLI's search technology because it drives significant sales growth by vastly improving the user experience."
