Algolia has announced the launch of its Algolia Partner Program, designed to help enterprises build fast, relevant search experiences with the expertise of a best-in-class partner ecosystem.
With more than 5,700 customers, the company says, Algolia has seen explosive adoption of its API over the past year. The new program will expand Algolia’s reach and help businesses identify the right partners to build and accelerate development of their search solutions.
Now, enterprises can tap into Algolia’s network of systems integrators, consulting partners, digital agencies and technology platforms to build a powerful search experience tailored to their specific industries and needs. The new program launched this week with 20 certified partners including Accenture Interactive – Altima, Redbox Digital, Magento (an Adobe company) and Shopify.
“Consumer expectations for content discovery grow every year, which means digital organizations must keep pace and provide personalized search experiences that fit each user’s needs,” said Alice Candidat, e-merchandising consultant for Altima. “Algolia helps differentiate our practice by enabling our consultants to intelligently advise our customers, like Lacoste, on how to drive more revenue through their digital channels by appealing and personalizing to each individual customer.”
Through the program, Algolia partners benefit from access to tools, resources and trainings, including:
Technical enablement and certification: In-depth training on Algolia technology, use cases and best practices to guide customers through any stage of their journey and customize their search experiences to fit respective goals and business objectives.
Go-to-market and sales enablement: Resources to support implementation and go-to-market efforts, including native integrations to complement and extend Algolia-powered experiences.
Marketing support: Joint collaboration to launch co-marketing events, webinars and campaigns as well as access to resources that further drive brand awareness including case studies and marketing collateral.
Algolia’s commitment to building a trusted partner program enables the company to better serve its growing community and accelerate its growth with enterprises who have complex and diverse needs across many industries.
“At Algolia, we understand that an API-first approach to building search and navigation enables enterprise customers to be more nimble, making our alliances with other technology providers and partners a priority,” said Alexandre Popp, director of channels and alliances at Algolia. “The importance of these partnerships is made even more clear by the sunset of Google Search Appliance (GSA), leading numerous customers and their strategic partners to migrate over to Algolia seeking a replacement or risk losing crucial search capabilities. We are thrilled to join forces with some of the top enterprise technology providers to provide a new home for digital organizations looking to deliver extraordinarily relevant search experiences.”
