3rd party tools used for the web solution include Omniture, PowerReviews and Avail.
The same Endeca cartridges that were developed for the web can be used for mobile websites.
Endeca PageBuilder allows for easy page manipulation by business owners without bugging the developer team. Predefined cartridges are built once by the developers and then customized by the business owners. Different triggers can be used in order to fire business rules, e.g. week of Christmas for a given cartridge, or selection of cartridges based on the selected facets.
Omniture data is used to rank result lists against. La Redoute manages 10 different ranking strategy algorithms depending on the product that a user may be searching for.
The integration of the Facebook Store works via the Endeca Catalog feature. The UI is built within Facebook.
