LONDON, Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SLI Systems ( today announced that Printerland, the UK's leading supplier of printers and printing supplies, has seen a more than four times higher conversion rate for site search users over non-site search users after implementing Learning Search from SLI Systems.

The company is also benefiting from the high relevancy of the Learning Search results, and is using SLI's AJAX technology, which speeds up delivery of results, as well as Rich Auto Complete, which automatically shows search suggestions and product images as soon as visitors begin typing keywords in the search box.
