Introducing Ola Search. A platform to design and build amazingly effective search experiences.
People can have a hard time coming up with the right terms to use in a query. Ola Search offers an intelligent query engine that suggests relevant terms based on personal history, popularity, and available taxonomies.
The outcome? Users get to learn and use terms that return relevant results.
When people craft a specific query, they express it in natural language. For example, “Invoice I was working on last monday”. Ola Search’s intent engine then infers that an ‘invoice’ is a document type, ‘working on’ is an act, and ‘last monday’ is a date. It uses these inferences to enrich the query.
The outcome? Users get an assistant-type experience that understands their intent and offers relevant results.
There are many types of search results that demand special representations. For example, a result showing a credit card demands that it shows user the most relevant details and perhaps a call to action. Ola Search offers ready-to-use interface components such as guides, instant answers and filters to build highly custom search interfaces.
The outcome? Users see and use custom interfaces that meet the demands of their tasks.
Sustaining a high performing search experience requires frequent tuning and tweaking. Ola Search offers search managers and analysts a place to monitor and tune search performance. For example, search analytics can inform the manager of queries that return zero search results. The manager can then take immediate action to correct the situation, perhaps by adding synonyms.
The outcome? Search managers and analysts have the control to review and improve the search performance themselves.

The Ola Search project started out at PebbleRoad, an enterprise UX consultancy. It was here we saw firsthand how enterprise search solutions can be greatly improved. We decided to offer value to our clients and help out. Soon we realised that there is much to learn and do with enterprise search, that we started Ola Search the company so that we can focus on making search work.
Search has the potential to solve big problems organisations face today. However, the reality is that search is misunderstood, abused and wasted. We want to see search succeed. We want people to love their search. The first step is to shift the conversation away from technology-first stance to an experience-first one. By getting more people to talk about search experiences, and by giving them simple tools to manage these experiences, we hope to spur excitement and innovation in search. When search reaches its potential, everybody wins. We welcome you to join us in taking this conversation forward.
