“We’re proud to be a part of our customer’s holiday shopping season success,” said Peter Curran, General Manager for Digital Commerce, Lucidworks. “This time of year is mission critical for enterprise retail and direct-to-consumer brands and we’re elated to see this year’s traffic and revenue over Cyber Five double from last year.”
Another insight from this year’s Cyber Five was the role that Lucidworks Fusion vector search capabilities played in search processing. Vector search uses deep learning to find product matches on high-intent-to-purchase, long-tail searches. Vector search alleviates business user toil by finding products without keyword matching or synonym entry. This means that shoppers find and purchase products even if they’re using different vocabulary, asking for brands that are not carried, products that have been superseded, or hunting for scarce items. During Cyber Five, vector search was utilized for about 14% of total query volume.
