Yodelar: Transforming User Experience with a Robust Search Engine and Ongoing Support


Yodelar, a leading platform for managing stock funds and fund manager data, embarked on a transformative journey to enhance their digital product and provide users with an exceptional experience. Recognising the need for a performant search functionality and ongoing support, Yodelar partnered with Metadeck for a website rebuild, along with the development of a powerful search engine using Meilisearch and Laravel Scout.

The Challenge: Yodelar faced the challenge of providing its users with an intuitive and efficient search experience within their platform. With a large dataset of approximately 100,000 funds, it was crucial to deliver accurate and relevant search results in real-time. Additionally, Yodelar sought a reliable partner who could not only rebuild their website but also provide ongoing support and maintenance to ensure long-term success.

The Solution: Metadeck collaborated closely with Yodelar to address their challenges and exceed their expectations. The project began with a comprehensive website rebuild, leveraging our expertise in Laravel development to create a modern, user-friendly platform. We then turned our focus to the search functionality, harnessing the power of Meilisearch and Laravel Scout to develop a robust search engine that met Yodelar’s specific requirements.

Key Features and Benefits:

Users could now effortlessly search and access the extensive dataset of funds, enabling informed investment decisions.
  3. Relevant Search Results: The search engine was fine-tuned to provide precise and relevant results based on user queries, considering various factors such as fund names, managers, performance, and rankings. This enhanced the overall search experience and empowered users to quickly find the information they needed.
  4. Ongoing Support and Maintenance: Metadeck’s commitment to long-term support and maintenance ensured that Yodelar’s platform remained robust, secure, and up-to-date. Our dedicated team provided timely bug fixes, performance optimisation, and regular updates, allowing Yodelar to focus on their core business while we took care of the technical aspects.
