Blindster sees higher revenue and conversions with Algolia AI searches

Algolia, the world’s only end-to-end AI Search solution, announces that Blindster, the largest retailer of private label, custom window coverings in the US, has selected Algolia’s AI Search solution and its powerful analytics, rules, synonyms and Dynamic Reorder functionality. This strategic move aims to propel Blindster to new heights within the window covering industry by utilizing best-in-class technologies. The result: a remarkable 33% increase in search conversions and an impressive 18% increase in search revenue.

Before Algolia, Blindster struggled with the limitations of an outdated, monolithic PHP-based application, which hindered rapid site changes and provided a lackluster search experience. The application’s inability to support millions of product inventory units (SKUs) and assess an ever-expanding index of product attributes also stifled Blindster’s potential to effectively engage with online shoppers.

Under the visionary leadership of Blindster Chief Executive Officer Kyle Cox and Chief Technology Officer Hector Almaguer, Blindster embarked on a transformative journey, building an API-first, headless commerce platform with Algolia as its cornerstone.

CTO Hector Almaguer underlines Algolia’s crucial role in fulfilling the company’s mission: “Algolia’s groundbreaking AI Search solution enables Blindster to deliver exceptional shopping experiences, foster lasting customer relationships and strengthen our leadership in the market. ”

Now that Algolia is seamlessly integrated across all category pages and ready for content implementation, Blindster anticipates a paradigm shift in its e-commerce landscape. Algolia’s innovative features not only improve search capabilities, but also increase flexibility, ease developers’ workloads and further their personalization ambitions.

Michelle Adams, Chief Revenue Officer, Algolia, said: “Blindster’s experience underlines the unparalleled impact of Algolia’s solutions in driving engagement, conversions and customer satisfaction. We eagerly look forward to further collaboration as Blindster continues its journey towards technology-driven excellence.”
