As part of the development strategy, Nosto acquired Findologic.

“The acquisition of Findologic demonstrates Nosto’s commitment to winning the product discovery market globally with our Commerce Experience Platform. Our search and merchandising capabilities have expanded rapidly during the past years, and we have remained focused on successfully integrating the technology and teams, which has allowed us to bring impactful tools and technologies to our customers and partners globally,”
