SLI Systems Named Highly Commended Online Technology Vendor of the Year at Retail Systems Awards 2014

Accolade is the second recognition in the U.K. for SLI Systems in less than a month

LONDON, 6 November 2014 – In recognition for continued contribution to the e-commerce industry, SLI Systems (SLI.NZ) was named the Highly Commended Online Technology Vendor of the Year at the U.K’s Retail Systems Awards 2014.

SLI received the award for the contribution that its Learning Search and Rich Auto Complete site search offerings have made to mid-to-large Internet retailers and B2B sites worldwide as well as for compelling customer-use scenarios.

It is the second time in less than a month that SLI’s industry-leading products have been recognised for their ability to accelerate e-commerce sales by connecting customers with the products they are most likely to buy.

At the start of October Learning Search and Rich Auto Complete won ‘Best Product’ at the eCommerce Awards for Excellence in London. SLI’s solutions have also this year been recognised at the Direct Marketing Association Conference in the U.S., Australia’s Online Retail Industry Awards and the World Retail Awards in Paris.

The U.K.’s Retail Systems Awards recognise technology excellence and innovation within the retail sector and were held on 30 October 2014 at the Lancaster Hotel in London with more than 400 attendees.

“Receiving recognition for being a key player in the UK e-commerce industry by the Retail Systems Awards further demonstrates the value our clients experience when working with SLI,” said Marcus Law, SLI’s head of marketing EMEA.

Since implementing SLI’s solutions, Chemist Direct, the UK’s leading online pure play healthcare and pharmacy provider, has experienced a conversion rate improvement of 175% and a search average order value increase of 196%. Search customers on the Chemist Direct site generate 43% of the total value of the site and have a 175% higher conversion rate than those who do not use search, as noted in a recent announcement.

“We are delighted with this accolade which also underscores our commitment to our customers’ success,” Mr Law said.
