Item Suggestion / Typeahead on Search - SiteBuilde

Item Suggestion / Typeahead systems are now part of every modern website. We can add a secure, fast system to your NetSuite website that is tailored to your needs. Keeping the data secure, up-to-date and relevant.

Our item suggestion / typeahead system works with your existing SiteBuilder or SCA website, is secure, and has features no one else offers. Once we set it up, maintenance is automatic. Content is updated as you need, usually daily. All data is kept in the secure confines of YOUR NetSuite account and files in your Live Hosting Files. Nothing leaves your control, ever. But best of all there are no ongoing monthly or yearly fees!

Features include: Item suggestion with or without images. Multiple display or sort fields; even your custom fields. Multiple tests -- if display name or itemid does not provide a full list results, keywords or other fields seamlessly kick in. Cool. For type-ahead we can read your various item fields to come up with a list of type-ahead search suggestions. Great if you have lots of items with similar names or ids.

Fast, Secure, Customized, and Automatically Maintained

Fast -

All data is pre-rendered instead of requested on-the-fly and is saved in browser LocalStorage. When characters are typed, item results display immediately with no additional server requests. Nothing is faster than 'immediately'!

Secure -

All pre-rendered data is stored in your NetSuite account in the Live Hosting Files, keeping your data secure and under your control. SuiteScripts that pre-render the data are kept in your SuiteScript folder. Your item suggestion / type-ahead data is not 'held hostage' to a monthly or yearly payment but under your exclusive control.

Customized -

Your website is unique, your items are unique and you have custom item fields. We can determine what needs to be displayed, and what fields to search that provides the best results. A test page is provided so we can show you the results before we place it live on your site.

Automatically Maintained -

Data used is updated daily or multiple-times a day, depending upon your needs. When you add items to your site, they are automatically added in the next data update. A manual "update now" button can also be provided.

Details of Features

Installation Process

After consulting with you on the best fields to use, we first create and first install a set of NetSuite SuiteScripts and set them to run as needed. They gather and pre-render your data. This data is saved in your Live Hosting Files and is used when a web page loads. A test page is created with our customized-for-your-site "special sauce" added. This displays results exactly as your customers would see. Then, together, we tweak the scripts until we get the results, and the look, just right. Then we put it live on yours site via customized tags. There really is nothing you will need to do from then on to maintain the data: scripts run automatically.

Use On Your Site

In your users browser, search data is normally saved in LocalStorage and updated daily. Your customers only need to start typing to see the results: a list of item suggestions or a list or key phrases to use for searching. See a sample page here

Other Features

Item cells can be feature-rich, depending upon your needs. It could just be a link of items, links with images. Items on one side, with categories or blog posts on the other. Whatever you need.

How We Are Different From Others

Native to NetSuite -

All data our scripts generate are stored within your secure NetSuite account. All code files and scripts we add are in your NetSuite account and only you have access to them.

Works With SiteBuilder -

Our systems works with NetSuite SiteBuilder and SCA websites.

Results can be customized for just your site -

We don't offer just set templates of what data fields to use, or how to display results. We customize it just for your site's needs.

No monthly or yearly fees -

No monthly or yearly fees. No monthly or yearly fees. We can't stress this enough. We don't store or manipulate your data externally to NetSuite so we don't have servers to maintain. You get the benefit the cost savings.

Pricing and How To Order

You are only billed for the time it takes, up to $500. Like our Facets / Filtering for NetSuite SiteBuilder, there are no additional monthly or yearly fees for this search results system. After installation, any requested changes and updates done by us are billed at our normal rates.

If you want to install it on multiple sites, or we need to code customer-specific data sets, there may be additional charges.

To sign up, give us a call so we can go over your needs and make sure our system will work for you. From USA call: 302.304.8404. Before we start a small deposit is requested up front and a final payment will be billed after it is live on your site. Normally, it takes about one to two weeks to install all the files, test the data, create and tweak the test page for you to approve, and put the it live.

Works Great With Our Facets / Filtering for NetSuite SiteBuilder

If you have 1000s of items and you want your users to easily select between them AND you want a facet / filtering system that works within your existing NetSuite SiteBuilder site templates -- we have what you need. We've been building custom template filtering systems for our customers for years. Everything we learned on coding, maintaining, and using facets / filters for category & item list pages we've put into this NetSuite bundle: Wuebben Design Facet/Filtering for SiteBuilder.

Our filters work with your existing SiteBuilder website, are secure, and have features no one else offers. Once we set it up, you can easily maintain your filters, add-to, and re-arrange the display of your facets. Content is updated as you need, usually daily. All data is kept in the secure confines of YOUR NetSuite account and files in your Live Hosting Files. Nothing leaves your control, ever. But best of all there are no ongoing monthly or yearly fees!

Our filters are not navigation nor does it replace your current navigation structure with a single page: you maintain your categories normally. (Good for SEO) Filters and facets automatically display based on the current category's items custom item fields data. If you currently have a deep category structure, you can significantly reduce you category depth since our filters remove the need for a deep category structure. This makes it much easier for your users to find exactly what they need. Item cells can look and behave like your current cells, or let us update them to something more modern. Any number of items display on one page, or let your users decide. We've added a more feature-rich sorting, too: Price, Name, Brand, Item ID.

NetSuite Advanced Cart, Checkout and Customer Center

NetSuite SiteBuilder has a basic cart and checkout turned on by default. There are limited customization possibilities and it is not responsive, so it is a good idea to upgrade. Fortunately, NetSuite offers a free download of the same cart /checkout / customer center that SCA uses, though modified for use with SiteBuilder. If you want your handheld users to more easily checkout and view your customer center, have us install & customize the latest SCA for SiteBuilder. Give us a call.

NetSuite has spent years developing and improving upon their latest cart / checkout / customer center. For SiteBuilder, they offer it as a free bundle. The current version is excellent with all sizes of screens –- from desktops to mobile handhelds -- and is designed to allow for easier updating in the future.

It is controlled via hundreds of modules of text, JavaScript files, and server pages. All text is customizable via an external file. Item cells are modifiable and can be added to with standard or custom item record fields. The checkout can be organized into multi-page or single-page checkout. It is near feature parity with SCA, is responsive, has more customization options; but it needs a few hours to install, add to your site, & customize to your exact needs. Give us a call.

We've spent years adding features to NetSuite's cart and checkout, and this latest setup allows us to add even more. For instance, if you have custom images for your matrix child items for the color of that item, we can show that color on the cart AND the checkout. No one else offers this feature! Give us a call.

*Responsive Cells: We create responsive item list cells completely differently than anyone else. The cells expand horizontally until an additional cell can be added. It is graceful and barely noticeable. Our cells also expand vertically, meaning you can have different amounts of information in each cell, yet ALL the cells in any given row are all the same height. Finally, our method encourages two cells per row on handhelds in portrait mode, instead of everyone else's single cell per row. Makes shopping easier. And best of all they still use normal NetSuite SiteBuilder templates and layouts. Check them out; our responsive item list cells are fantastic!

**Unique Filtering/Facets Our filters work on the item list or category list level. Items displayed can be filtered by any custom item field, or by price range. Unlike every other filtering system you've seen, our system updates content immediately, without additional server requests. Every category is maintained the standard NetSuite method you currently use: it's just now you have filters/facets. Totally responsive – working great on handhelds! All data stays internal to NetSuite so your business data is secure and under your control - always - with NO EXTRA MONTHLY FEES. (All the data is pre-rendered via daily scripts.) In handheld mode the filters display like a typical 'hamburger' navigation.

***Item Suggestion / Typeahead Search Immediately displayed dropdown of item suggestions or type-ahead search phrases on your normal NetSuite global search. NO EXTRA MONTHLY FEES.


We can make NetSuite SiteBuilder websites be fully responsive, yet be internal to NetSuite using the normal layouts and templates.



We can customize your NetSuite SiteBuilder templates to add ANYTHING you can need. Unique, effective and easy to maintain.
