New integration delivers AI-based merchandising and search optimization for merchants
Fast Simon (formerly InstantSearch+), the leader in shopping optimization for merchants, today announced a new collaboration with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Commerce. Its flagship solution, InstantSearch+, is one of the first merchandising and search platforms to integrate directly with Dynamics 365 Commerce and drive AI-based merchandising, search, and personalization capabilities.
Whether shoppers are visiting an online store with a clear intent to buy or they are just exploring, InstantSearch+ delivers AI-powered merchandising, search, and personalization, based on shopper behavior, store inventory, data, and visual signals. The Fast Simon shopping optimization suite increases conversion rates and average order value (AOV) for merchants and delivers a differentiated experience for customers. Current Fast Simon merchants report growth of up to 40% year over year after adopting the powerful search platform.
“Fast Simon and Microsoft share a vision of enabling eCommerce teams to automate manual work and deliver AI-powered shopper experiences,” said Zohar Gilad, CEO at Fast Simon. “Our new integration with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Commerce illustrates how we’re executing on that vision, helping fast-growing retailers to automatically optimize the entire shopping experience and achieve merchant goals at the same time.”
Leading eCommerce merchants already use InstantSearch+ across multiple brands—and borders. As a partner of Dynamics 365, InstantSearch+ can now extend its AI merchandising capabilities directly to Dynamics 365 customers using finance and operations, regardless of the eCommerce platform they currently use.
“Fast Simon’s integration with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Commerce is an example of how our partners benefit from our interfaces to build enhanced platform capabilities for our customers,” said Balaji Balasubramanian, general manager, Dynamics 365 Commerce. “The InstantSearch+ integration brings AI technology that, until recently, has only been available for the big retail brands, to the masses, giving them a competitive advantage.”
