Search & Navigation

With expertise in both ecommerce strategy and technology, Javelin Group implements highly effective search and navigation solutions using all the leading packages.

We have extensive experience of implementing search and navigation solutions and practical experience as a partner of the following four leading vendors:

  • Endeca: a leading provider of unstructured data management, web commerce and business intelligence solutions
  • Fredhopper: provides on-site search and navigation capabilities for ecommerce, including features such as in-context search results, smart and predictive search, dynamic in-search recommendations, and sophisticated language and multilingual support
  • FACT-Finder: provides comprehensive on-site search, navigation and merchandising solutions
  • Apache Solr: is a fast open source enterprise search platform




We know what it takes to make a website sell and how effective search and navigation can help deliver this. Our approach is highly tailored to retailers’ needs and we call on members of our technical, user experience, strategy and merchandising teams to provide a single comprehensive solution, whatever the challenge.

Whether it is a full implementation, a concise technical audit or a broad assessment of the full customer search and navigation experience, we have a proven track record of delivery from both technical and business stand points.

We have implemented search and navigation solutions for many clients including Debenhams, Lakeland, Rexel, Tesco, Signet, and Ingram Micro.
