I think I am ready with my review of mirasvit extension and their support. The reason I am including support in the review is because any software might have glitches despite being a robust one, because generally we have a lot of other extensions installed.
Review of Mirasvit Elasticsearch Ultimate for Magento 2
It was pretty straightforward. Go to their site , add the product and then checkout. You can add a coupon.
The total cost after discount should be around 225 dollars approx( $ 249 is the original price)
Installation of extension
Installation of elasticsearch engine
Configuration of your magento instance to work with elasticsearch engine
Super awesome support for 90 days
It was done by the support team and in my case it was Max Podkopaev from their support.
It was done after raising a ticket and providing all access details.
Bugs and Incompatibility and Mirasvit support
This is the most crucial part as whenever we install any extensions it might not behave the way it is supposed to, or you have a different requirement, some customisation etc.
My site is a heavily customised site and has some customised indexes( vendor search) and i needed some real work on my site. My magento developer had little idea about a search extension and even if they would have done it , it would have been at a cost.
Super duper support
I approached and raised a ticket and mentioned all the things required on my site. The support team is amazing and they worked on my site and updated me daily.Their support is pretty awesome and I feel that with that kind of support any company is worth investing in even if their extensions are little deficient( In this case the extension is very robust and covers all search needs)
Review of extension
It is a very useful extension and there are a host of features to to put us in full control . For more info you can check out the demo.
1 .it has “popular suggestions”
2. it has autocomplete
3. you can decide which product attribute carry weightage,
4. you can put stop words and synonyms
5. you can add new indexes( awesome function)
6. if you have a blog or FAQ section it will most probably search that too.
7. You can out hot searches- basically its like promoting some particular search
8. custom landing pages.
In all honesty I was not familiar with most of the terms and facilities in this extension but upon using it and seeing what it has to offer , I am very happy.
Finally this extension works flawlessly without any glitches , and even if u have a problem the customer support is the best I have ever seen.
