Our Story

Though we are driven by an innovative start-up culture, our roots run deep. Since 2001 we have been inventing new ways to improve online search, increase our clients’ revenue, and delight customers.

It all began when the founders of SLI Systems developed a new breed of Internet search — one that used machine learning to continually improve the relevancy of search results. By delivering this technology to online retailers, SLI made it easier than ever to find and sell products online.

For more than 15 years we have made it our mission to continue to innovate. Today, we have built on earlier technologies to present the SLI E-commerce Product Discovery Suite – the powerful platform behind search, navigation, recommendations, merchandising, mobile and SEO applications that drive retailers’ revenue.

Founded in New Zealand, SLI is a Silicon Valley company with Kiwi roots. With original founders still personally involved with the business, rich history infuses our culture. SLI now serves as many as 1 billion search queries each month for businesses in five continents and in 20 languages.
