Now we're going to dig deeper into how exactly search as a service works. For businesses, the process is undemanding and straightforward. The first and most important step is to choose the provider of the search app. Then you install the app in one click, and it's pretty much it: search and filters will be instantly added to your ecommerce website.
Here is an example of how the technology
behind it works. Once you've installed the search app, in the next 5 minutes indexation of products, articles, and store categories takes place. To export this information, a SaaS search app uses the API of your ecommerce platform. After indexation is finished, the exported data is used to generate search results, filtering and sorting options for customers searching your store. The search app also tracks all the changes you make in the catalog in real-time to ensure the most up-to-date search results. That means If you make any changes in the catalog, they will become visible to users in search results in under 10 minutes.
