A.M. Leonard Implementation of Thanx Media’s Site Search Solution, Hawk Search, Enhances Customer Usability

CHICAGO, Ill. - September 17, 2013 -- A.M. Leonard, Inc., a leading provider of Horticultural Tools and Supplies, has seen a steady growth in site commerce due to the implementation of Thanx Media’s Hawk Search. The scalable and flexible software solution is used to power A.M. Leonard’s Ecommerce site search to improve overall customer experience.

“There are two ways to increase online revenue,” explained Neil Roble, Director of Marketing for A.M. Leonard. “You can either drive more traffic or you can do more with the traffic you already have. Our focus is on providing a better customer experience and we know sales will increase if we help people find the right products faster.”

Roble partnered with Thanx Media prior to joining A.M. Leonard. “I knew from previous engagements with Thanx Media,” continued Roble, “that the team is easy to work with, knowledgeable, and forward thinking. This made us confident that we’d see dramatic results by using their site search services.  After the recent agreement was finalized, the Thanx Media team completed the implementation in less than a month. ”
A.M. Leonard experienced positive results immediately and within that first month reported an increase of $2.00 per visitor who used the site search feature. They were also pleased to see an increase in conversion rates during a time of year in which conversion rates typically decline for them.

“We have a great selection of products,” continued Roble, “which can be both awesome and intimidating. Before implementing Hawk Search it was a challenge for our customers to figure out which product was best for them. Now they can easily narrow their results based on things like brand, technical capability, and price.”

 “We look forward to seeing the numbers grow even more after A.M. Leonard implements the faceted navigation experience site wide,” said Paul Matker, Thanx Media CEO.
