Scalable search tool

Scalability and flexibility

Most solutions offer usage-based pricing, but not all of them are equally good at scalability and flexibility. Your new advanced search engine needs to be able to handle large traffic on e-commerce websites and scale up or down so you won’t lose potential customers.

While Doofinder is usually a more favorable solution for smaller e‑shops with less traffic, Luigi’s Box pricing could be beneficial for other types of websites, including bigger e‑shops or enterprise websites with a lot of content. It can provide a smart site search for every customer online without any trouble.
