Why use Layered Navigation Pro extension on your Magento
Take a look at the video below to see the comparison between the default Magento layered navigation and AITOC’s Layered Navigation Pro:
Default Magento navigation process is rather irritating and time consuming for the customer as it only provides searching step by step and takes too long. Efficient product search and navigation is crucial for a high conversion rate.
With Layered Navigation Pro you can make your navigation faster, more flexible and user-friendly! This extension will enable your customers to indicate all the product parameters at once without having to choose attributes one by one to find the right product.
The extension gets the info about the products from the server, and then uses AJAX to sort and filter the products directly in the browser, without additional server request. This gives a significant speed increase.
Layered Navigation Pro is an easy and intuitive tool for Admin to improve front-end Magento navigation and save customers’ time and efforts. Your customer will appreciate the convenience and will be more likely to choose your user friendly Magento store for future purchases.
Layered Navigation Pro extension for Magento features:
- Significantly speeds up the navigation process;
- Uses breadcrumbs-like categories display adopted from Amazon.com;
- Enables your customers to shop by multiple attributes in a category;
- Highlights current selection directly in the filter block;
- Uses popular Price Slider control;
- Improves user experience with the fast AJAX filtering, paging and sorting;
- The extension’s functionality is 100% Open Source.
Don't count on your customers' patience. Improve default Magento navigation process with Layered Navigation Pro extension!

The AITOC team has not only put together the best in class solutions to many of Magento's shortcomings, they also stand behind their solutions. Any question or issue that arises they are right there to help and explain. Fast, efficent and thorough. I honestly can say I cannot think of a finer support group than AITOC.

Having used this for several months, we are very pleased with performance and usability. We had some problems moving to new hosting provider and staging environment but the AITOC team were quick to provide support and resolve our issues. Great extension and great support always from AITOC.

Great extension to enhance navigation and AITOC support team is fantastic with questions and help with the modules.
RatingReview by Joe C. (Posted on 3/26/10)
This extension is based on the standard Magento Layered Navigation but on steriods!
It's fast, it's intuitive and it creates a superb customer experience. I was able to funnel some suggestions to the AITOC team and they implemented them to make this even better.
No store should be without this extension.
RatingReview by Joseph (Posted on 3/3/10)
I purchase this module and installed it on my own and ran into some issues with it conflicting with a previously installed extension (from another company). I tried to get it to work on my own with no luck.
I then purchased the module installation and the staff at AITOC logged on, spent some time analyzing things and within the hour it was working properly! Great great support!
This is the 2nd extension I have purchased from them with at least few more still left to purchase...
The extension itself is absolutely terrific. Very professional.

just excellent extension, works how promised, no bugs encountered... Would like to have more documentation on css customization - kind of hard to figure out which divs are pulled to make the look of the navigation. Will have to ask for support.
RatingReview by Gui (Posted on 11/27/09)
This is just Ace! Although it may appear simple this extension improves the Layered navigation in Magento from "somewhat useful" to one of the biggest assets your store can offer in convenience.
Installation is really a matter of uploading, clearing cache and works right out of the box. Highly recommended
