Algolia provides a developer-friendly SaaS API for database search. Most web services and mobile apps, such as Spotify, Salesforce or Amazon need to provide a fast and meaningful access to database objects via a simple search box. People want to find songs, invoices, products in just a few keystrokes.

Algolia’s search API returns full results in less than 10ms in average, allowing as-you-type result display, “à la Google”, up to 200 times faster than other search technologies.

Our focus is on small database objects (such as contacts or products), so we designed new ranking rules built for this kind of data. We use new criteria to rank results, such as the popularity for a song, or, for a product, how many times it was put in a shopping cart. This new engine design, optimized for databases, enables the apps and services who use our API to provide their users with meaningful and relevant results at the first keystroke.

Algolia is changing the way end users search and access content inside web services and apps.
