Our Search Technologies
Pioneering the Next Generation of Faceted Search
Kelora develops the world’s most advanced and widely used product search technologies.
Created in 1994, our award-winning Kelora StepSearch™ technology was the first faceted search technology available.
StepSearch was first implemented a year later by AMP Incorporated, the world’s largest connector manufacturer (now part of Tyco Electronics) to allow users to perform faceted browsing of the first web catalog.
In 1998, the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office issued the first in a series of four StepSearch patents based on the initial 1994 application.
Over the past two decades, StepSearch has become the industry norm for companies who want their users to be able to quickly and easily narrow search results.
The StepSearch patent is U.S. Patent Number 6,275,821, entitled “Method and System for Executing a Guided Parametric Search.”
With Kelora Diamond Search™, our new and patented next generation technology, we have created a revolutionary step forward in product search. With Diamond Search, online shopping comes even closer to feeling like an in-store experience. In fact, it’s even better.
By always keeping the buyer visually connected to the product and its details—instead of switching back and forth between search criteria, search results and product page—Diamond Search will dramatically increase conversion rates.
The Kelora Diamond Search U.S. Patent Number is 7,885,956.
