CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Endeca Technologies, Inc., an agile information management software company, announced today Buyagift, Plc, the UK’s leading gift experience company, has selected Endeca InFront™, including search, merchandising, and mobile web technologies. This will support the rapid growth of Buyagift’s global business by enabling more
targeted and personalized customer purchasing experiences across channels.
Buyagift Plc, part of Smart & Co, a multi-million pound international group of gift experience companies which operates in 17 countries worldwide, has embarked on a global expansion plan aimed at building upon its success in the UK. In doing so, Buyagift sought a scalable solution for search, merchandising, and mobile that would support the company’s expansion across geographies while giving its marketers and merchandisers greater oversight and control over the customer experience.
Buyagift chose Endeca technology, including PageBuilder, SEO, Mobile, and internationalization capabilities, not only for this unique combination of functionality, but also because it could integrate with existing technology and serve as a platform for growth for the future.

“Using Endeca, we will not only be able to leverage landing pages across geographies for the first time, but our merchandisers will also be able to better position
experiences that are converting the best at any given time. The integration of mobile web, SEO and merchandising represents a critical growth opportunity we couldn’t deliver with our existing technology or with any other vendor we considered.”
