Technical Details

For every site:

  1. User preferences are fed into the Recommender from the database, in the form of Client-Product
  2. An ordered list of recommendations is generated into the database, in the form of Client-Product-Rank
    • Steps 1 and 2 are repeated periodically
  3. The business owner can include the list of recommendations for their clients to see

When a module is rendered, the template is populated from the Recommendations table, along with additional information about each product.
