Algolia’s flexible APIs and UI toolkits provides teams with the resources necessary to build the experience best suited for your needs.

Retain your users

Help your users find exactly what they’re looking for whenever, wherever and however they want through a unified experience across devices.

Increase your revenue

Get insights on how users interact with your website or app, launch A/B tests and analytics via APIs or a user-friendly dashboard.

We solve for front-end, back-end, and speed.

Speed & automation

Lightning-fast search and automation means you never have to re-index your website. You always have the flexibility to fine-tune the index.

Flexible UI bundle

The front-end bundle works out of the box with the records Algolia extracts from your site. You can still build your custom user interface if you prefer.
