Features to look for

How to pick Hawksearch alternative?

There are several factors you should consider while choosing an alternative for Hawksearch. We pick four essentials.


Showing customers the right products at the right time and place is key to earning more satisfied return customers and higher sales. Hawksearch offers features like product boosting, recommendations, or pinning products so you can influence product visibility and order according to your business goals and needs. And now, imagine the experience with features such as dynamic product filtering, product boosting, product bundles and banners, and others. Those are Luigi’s Box merchandising features.


Another critical element is personalization. Personalization is a fantastic and powerful tool since customers have an online shopping experience tailored to them and feel like every recommendation and the whole store were made for them. Hawksearch personalizes search results and suggestions based on customers’ preferences, behavior, and buying motivations. Luigi’s Box personalizes search from the first interaction to deliver a magical customer journey, offers upsell and cross-sell recommendations, and uses different personalization strategies based on segments.


Hawksearch offers integration with several platforms and is also able to integrate any e-commerce platform via API. It also provides rich integration documentation. These options are great, but it could be a bit difficult and time-consuming if you do not have a coding background or a team of specialists. In that case, we recommend reaching for an alternative with a more straightforward integration option. Have a look at Luigi’s Box integration options, and if you don’t find your platform among them, don’t despair. Luigi’s Box can easily be integrated with any platform in four steps via GTM using one line of code.

Search with autocomplete

And last but not least, a search that is crucial for your customers. We do not talk about basic search functionality but intelligent e-commerce site search with features created to deliver relevant product results in a split second, regardless of whether customers know product names or not, and simultaneously help customers discover new products. Search with autocomplete also plays a crucial role in the product discovery journey since it provides product suggestions that might interest them in addition to the correct results. So while choosing the most suitable alternative, look for this level of search functionality.

Why Luigi's Box?

Why is Luigi’s Box a suitable Hawksearch alternative?

A/B Testing

Test, test, and test again

A/B testing allows you to test different versions of one solution on your website to see which works best for you, learn more about your audience, and make changes to reach them in the best way possible.

Luigi’s Box provides A/B testing in online and offline environments, so you do not have to be afraid of releasing solutions that can harm your website. Instead, measure and collect visitor engagement with each experience, and see whether changes had a positive, negative, or no effect on visitor behavior.

Dynamic filters

Advanced filters that vary

Dynamic filters represent an essential feature when it comes to a perfect online shopping experience. While searching for products, customers will see only filters relevant to the category they are searching in. For example, customers looking for CDs will see filters such as release date or genre, and for clothes, filters like gender, color, and size.

Dynamic filters remove customer frustration and save time since they do not have to wade through the quantum of filtering options, but they will only see the most relevant ones.

Personalized strategy

Different personalization strategies for different segments

Luigi’s Box personalization engine considers different customer interactions that can differ across various segments and according to them offers relevant products. For example, our system decides how to personalize the results in segments like Groceries and Electronics.

If customers buy lactose-free products, our system will understand and suggest them on their next visit. But if the customer bought a new TV, they will not likely need one a month later, so our system will suggest complementary products or other suitable accessories instead.
