To improve its search engine results, Fancy.com implemented Luminoso Search Enhancement, which supplements existing search engines by expanding their indexes. Leveraging Luminoso’s proprietary natural language modeling system, Search Enhancement augments keywords into lists of related topics, and offers intuitive responses to searches that contain misspellings, acronyms, domain-specific terminology, slang, and words with multiple meanings.
“We were looking for a powerful and easy-to-implement application that would significantly expand the functionality of our existing search engine,” said Greg Spillane, CEO of Fancy.com. “Luminoso Search Enhancement has exceeded our expectations, and our team couldn’t be more impressed with the results we’ve seen.”
