SLI Systems Wins Best Product at the eCommerce Awards for Excellence 2014
LONDON, 06 October 2014 – Recognised for their continued contribution to the e-commerce industry, SLI Systems (SLI.NZ) defeated the competition to be crowned the winner of the “Best Product” at the eCommerce Awards for Excellence 2014. The event took place at the Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square in London as a follow on to the eCommerce Expo, one of the UK’s top events dedicated to internet retailing.
SLI, an e-commerce acceleration provider for mid- to large-size e-commerce vendors and Internet retailers worldwide, received the award for its site search product offerings – Learning Search and Rich Auto Complete – and for compelling customer-use scenarios.
For example, Chemist Direct, the UK’s leading online pure play healthcare and pharmacy, in a recent announcement communicated it has experienced dramatic conversion rate improvements of 175%, and search average order value increases of 196% with SLI. Also, search customers on the Chemist Direct site generate 43% of the total value of the site and have a 175% higher conversion rate than those who do not use search.
The highly prestigious awards, now in their sixth year, recognise the achievements of those who are raising the bar within the e-commerce sector, bringing together the standout talent in the industry. The awards also present an opportunity for retailers and organisations to gain the prestige of public acknowledgement as being leaders in their field.
