Business Challenges

In the existing Ecommerce store, the search functionality was not user-friendly and the user found it difficult to browse the products. The unpleasing search functionality was impacting the conversion ratio, so client approached Brainvire team to optimize the search functionality.
The proficient team built and implemented the Solr search extension in the existing Ecommerce store to enhance the search functionality and take user experience to a whole new level.


The Solr Search extension was built and implemented in the dietary supplement Ecommerce store so that customers can easily navigate and find the products at speed. It’s a My SQL full-text search option that can handle a lot of products with the ability of layered navigation filter.


  • Allow the customers to select multiple options for one attribute filter
  • Display relevant result
  • Automatically provide suggestions as customers start typing in the search box
  • 100% open-source extension supports HTTP authentication
  • Able to handle wide categories of the products
  • Auto-correct the spelling errors in the search box
  • Products along with images are suggested in the search box
  • Extension can be quickly installed without the need of any setup


Implementing multiple checks option for every attribute in the filter and making the extension deliver desired results quickly was a difficult job. As for inserting the multiple attributes value in the Solr search extension and creating a schema.XML file, and then fetching the products from Solr Search instead of Magento was a challenging task. The Magento experts made it possible with debugging, testing and writing some queries.

  • Website performance is enhanced
  • Customers can easily find what they are looking for
