Dan Brown, Author. Speaker at Web Summit 2015
Dan Brown – Author

The mysterious head of a startup rainmaker event, The Web Summit, has started plans to move operations elsewhere, possibly under duress from an ancient order of monks whose power reaches far and wide. Founders have begun to be picked off one by one in grisly circumstances by a hulking monster known only as the Cash Crunch that appears out of nowhere. Can Dan Brown’s talk shed any light on this chilling situation? Probably not but you can bet he’ll have some interesting stuff to say.

Web Summit Guide 2015

The Web Summit 2015 is fast approaching, and will be the last to take place in Dublin before it moves to Lisbon next year. Taking place over three days (November 3-5 2015), it will see an estimated 30,000 people descend on Dublin’s RDS to see hundreds of luminaries from the world of technology take to the stage.

We’re pleased to tell you that we’re continuing our annual trend of creating the HeyStaks Guide to Dublin Web Summit, which you can download below for free. It has everything from networking tips, to speaker profiles, to practical information on visiting Dublin.


Announcing the Launch of Personalized Site Search for eCommerce on DID.ie

We’re delighted to announce our new deal with DID Electrical to launch our personalized site search on their e-commerce website, which is the leading online electronics portal in Ireland.

DID’s eCommerce Manager, Darren Hardiman, had the following to say about the launch:

The Launch of this personalized search service is an integral part of the DID.ie strategy to optimize the user experience and to ensure we deliver the right product to each user in each visit to the DID online store. This service will also enable us to learn the intent of each shopper and to understand the products we need to carry to satisfy their neeeds. HeyStaks achieves that all – deploying the HeyStaks solution is like having a new website – there is just no comparison to what we had before.

Our CEO here at HeyStaks, Maurice Coyle, said:

“DID.ie sees the delivery of a highly personalized onsite search experience as an essential step in strengthening its position and brand value in the extremely competitive online electronics marketplace. The new personalized site search powered by HeyStaks’ technology offers DID.ie shoppers the right items and a relevant shopping experience based on what we learn about them. Our unique engine uses intent analytics and collaborative-based recommendations to increase relevance by 40% over any other personalization technology.

How you can Start Making Revenue from Mobile Subscriber Data Usage (Webinar)

We’re hosting a free webinar on 29th April @ 11am GMT, in which we will tackle a major issue facing mobile operators and service providers today. With the need to invest in the newest and fastest network infrastructure to support new standards such as LTE, ways to derive revenues from these investments must be found. This is made all the more urgent given the fact that traditional voice and messaging revenues are being cannibalised by over-the-top providers like WhatsApp and Skype, who are using the operators’ data utility to do it.

Intent profiling


Video: Introducing Intent-Driven Advertising

Our most recent video gives a quick overview of our newest solution for mobile operators – Intent-Based Advertising. It explains how HeyStaks helps operators to get to know their customers better by identifying intent signals from search data. It also shows how operators can use this intelligence to develop sustainable new revenue streams at a time when they’re facing threats from Over the Top applications.


A Statement of Intent: Mobile World Congress (MWC 2014) Beckons

We’ll be heading to Mobile World Congress in Barcelona again this year, exhibiting on the Ireland pavillion in Hall 7, stand 7F70 and looking forward to another great event.

At this year’s event we’ll be unveiling the first of our “Intentional Advertising” offerings, built on the HeyStaks Collaborative Search Analytics platform. Mobile operators and other service providers looking to use subscriber data usage patterns to improve their CRM, precision marketing and advertising initiatives now have the perfect tool with our profile enrichment technology.


HAPI days: HeyStaks API helps developers to make their own social search applications

We were delighted to launch our developer programme at the Dublin Web Summit last week and also to announce the small matter of €800K in venture funding that we raised earlier this year. We raised the funding to help us build out the platform and infrastructure for the HeyStaks API (which we’re affectionately calling HAPI!) and to support our initial customer engagements.

HAPI can be used to make any search environment social. Driving higher conversions on eCommerce sites through personalized listings, creating superior context-aware mobile search experiences, reducing search effort and duplicated efforts for educators, students and enterprises. All can now be achieved without without having to invest in new search infrastructure.

It’s a very exciting time for us as a team, and we can’t wait to see what wonderful uses people make of our platform. The full text of last week’s press release is below, so enjoy and get building!


HeyStaks selected for START 150 at the Dublin Web Summit

Hurrah, hooray and huzzah, HeyStaks will be exhibiting with the world’s most exciting, disruptive startups at this year’s Dublin Web Summit.

logoWe’ve been selected to participate in the invite-only START 150 event, which runs in parallel to the Web Summit itself. It gives “incredible young companies” an opportunity to blow their trumpets to the gathered startup, media and investor attendees. Luckily we just bought a shiny new trumpet.

We’re planning a couple of juicy announcements at this year’s summit. The START 150 event will give us a great platform to sing our message about a Web where people find the content that they want to find, not the content that search engines think they want. Our platform for adding collaboration to any search environment has been on the boil for a while and now it’s time to lift the lid.

Stay tuned for more exclusives, and in the meantime we’d love to hear below if you’re heading to the Dublin Web Summit and what you’re looking forward to. We love meeting interesting people so please reach out.
