eCommerce websites are driven by search. But consumers often find it difficult to find the products they are looking for. According to a Forbes “e-Retail Review”, 10% of the products in an online site attract 75% of page views. This means a huge number of products are effectively hidden from potential customers. With HeyStaks collaborative search technology you can personalize the customer’s search experience, delivering a 40% improvement in the quality of recommendations. This means higher conversion rates and more sales. This downloadable paper outlines the features and benefits that HeyStaks technology offers for eCommerce websites:

Dublin Web Summit 2013 Review – The Best Talks – Part I
This year’s Dublin Web Summit was bigger than ever, growing more than double last year’s size to a staggering 10,000 attendees. Paddy and team continued their awe-inspiring rush to the top of the pile of tech events. It’s still run like the startups the the event is all about – sometimes rough & ready, “good enough” at most things and doing one thing really, really well – bringing together anyone who’s anyone in the tech world in a flurry of great talks, fantastic networking and all kinds of amazing.
Technology Conferences and Enterprise Summits – December 2013
With winter closing in on the northern hemisphere and Christmas approaching, it’s clear that December is not a prime month for conferences and summits. There are, however, still tech events happening around the globe for those who want to attend. This month we have also added listings for conferences focused on web development.
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!

Whitepaper – Mobile, Social Search: A Case Study
We are living in a discovery economy where access to the right information at the right time can make the difference between success and failure. The ability to use modern information discovery tools such as search engines, social media, and related services is an important skill for us all to master, particularly on mobile devices where new tradeoffs exist when it comes to searching for and finding information online. In this paper we describe one such solution in the form of collaborative search, which combines conventional term-based search with a more social approach to information discovery that is particularly well-adapted to the constraints of mobile devices.
