Why choose Site Search 360 over Swiftype

While Swiftype search is elastic, Site Search 360 offers more advanced, yet simple to implement search features to semantically enrich your data, and manage your results. Site Search 360's basic package comes with a custom dictionary and a smart result manager with easy drag-and-drop features. Swiftype's user interface tool is no match for Site Search 360's low to no-code search designer which helps you design your search bar, suggestions and results, and instantly preview your changes. Site Search 360's pricing structure is also way more competitive than Swiftype with a free plan and a flexible subscription model.
