Earlier today B7 Interactive, the creators of SearchSpring and a leader in hosted site search, announced the release of their new super fast account creation wizard. Merchants no longer have to wait days or even weeks to have a third party search setup. This new wizard allows merchants to instantly sign up, setup, and deploy improved search functionality without having to have strong technical knowledge. SearchSpring is the first to bring this ease of setup to the third party search market. The intuitive wizard will guide merchants step by step from configuring their feed, to configuring their fields, and designing their search layout look and feel.
A new feature highly anticipated by SearchSpring customers as part of the new wizard is the brand new AJAX technology based search interface. The new search interface includes facet based navigation, AJAX based product comparison, a CSS based templating system, and only requires a single line of HTML to be integrated into a site. The AJAX search also improves performance by allowing customers to use its functionality without having to refresh the page. Within the AJAX search, only the results reload based on what the customer has filtered or sorted by. In addition to performance enhancements, the AJAX search is very sexy in visual appearance.
SearchSpring puts merchants in the driver’s seat of their site’s search feature by giving them control over every aspect of the software, including the ability to customize the look and feel. Fine grained control over field-level configuration options and the ability to manage synonyms and merchandising settings available inside the newly redesigned SearchSpring Management Console. Retailers using SearchSpring aren’t required to submit support tickets for changes they can handle themselves – and a US-based team of rockstar support engineers is available to assist merchants with more complex adjustments.

"It allows our customers to offer a great user experience within their search which will lead to an increased sales conversion percentage.
