Algolia’s technology has also helped navigate disruptions in supply and spikes in demand. When consumer demand heightened during the COVID-19 pandemic, Algolia enabled’s product and merchandising teams to control rank and sorting rules to increase the visibility of popular products that were in stock, rather than frustrating customers with unavailable products. This enhanced control improved customer experience and allowed to sell popular products for which they had inventory.

“As supply chain disruptions continue and the holidays near, retailers cannot risk directing potential customers to out-of-stock products,” said David Lerner, Head of Product at “While many retailers are struggling to accurately display stock, Algolia enables us to adjust rankings to quickly hide products that aren’t available and showcase those that have an abundance of stock. This is how smaller companies can compete with retail giants this season. Those who don’t leverage search and personalize content will miss out on meaningful business opportunities.”
