SAN FRANCISCO, June 29, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lucidworks, the leading provider of search solutions, today announced results from a commissioned Total Economic Impact™ study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Lucidworks.

The study also reported the following benefits from Lucidworks Fusion:

  • Net present value of $13.92 million and ROI of 391%. Composite organization investment in Lucidworks Fusion experience benefits of $17.48 million over three years versus costs of $3.56 million.
  • Savings from developer reallocation of $1.8 million. Lucidworks Fusion reduced the number of experienced developers required to maintain its search application and reallocates these developers to other strategic initiatives.
  • Increased ecommerce profit from improved conversion amounted to $6.8 million. Uptick in e-commerce sales leading to increased profits.
  • Personnel time saved on search totaled $8.9 million. Significant time savings of up to 2.9% for personnel who use search intensively.

“We are committed to working as a trusted partner with our clients and developing new integrations with cutting-edge technologies such as generative AI and neural search,” said Sinoway. “We make search a superpower for some of the world’s largest brands and believe the study findings reaffirm the value Lucidworks provides as a software vendor and a leader in the space.”

Forrester Consulting interviewed several Lucidworks customers. The composite organization formed as part of the process showed the following additional qualitative benefits:

  • Bring decision-making closer to product owners. Lucidworks Fusion provides a simple interface that allows users to manually adjust research to highlight specific results. Interviewees noted that marketing professionals quickly made changes without involving technical support.
  • Improve uptime. Interviewees reported that they spent a lot of manpower on babysitting the system with previous solutions, but they still could not prevent disruptive levels of downtime. With Fusion in place, the risk of outage was reduced.
  • Insight generation through more comprehensive search results. The interviewees’ ability to federate search across systems and international boundaries eliminated data silos to provide more comprehensive results.
