Pandemic has forever changed how people shop and dramatically sped up the shift to online. Most barriers are broken.
Online or physical, consumers will always try to find the perfect product – perfect for their choice when they are shopping. When you enter a physical store, with the help of the sales representatives you can learn the functionalities and access the product you need.
However, this is not the case in e-commerce, which has become the center of our lives especially in a pandemic.
At this point, an online product finder can be designed to help a customer, similar to a sales representative. E-commerce product finders can easily find the best product(s) for each individual customer's needs among thousands of them.
Basically, the product finder asks the customer a series of questions to recommend the best matching product. Using product finders you can create “a great online customer journey” with no code and zero integration
