Announcing the Launch of Personalized Site Search for eCommerce on

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 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:

“ 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 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.

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!
