Predictive Merchandiser

Fusion 5.0.2 integrates Predictive Merchandiser as a component of Fusion AI.

Predictive Merchandiser is an AI-powered merchandising tool that provides insights and recommendations for optimizing search results and product placement.

Predictive Merchandiser Board

It provides an easy to use interface, allowing you to:

  • Connect to a Fusion Server data source and simulate the shopping experience of your customers.

  • Pin, boost, bury, and block specific products in your catalog.

  • Create business rules to display custom banners, or redirect customers to a different page on your site, for example.

  • Create search rewriting strategies to manage spelling mistakes, synonym matching, phrase matching, and poorly performing queries.

  • Review query rewriting strategies that were generated automatically using machine learning models in Fusion.

  • Deploy new business rules and search rewrites to the Fusion data source where they can be triggered by live queries.

  • View analytics reports that show, for example, the variation in site visits over time, the most clicked on products, and the most searched for terms.

If you have a Fusion AI license, you can access Predictive Merchandiser by navigating to Relevance > Rules and selecting Merchandiser.
