Faceted Search for SobiPro

Faceted search, also called faceted navigation or faceted browsing, is a technique for accessing information organized according to a faceted classification system, allowing users to explore a collection of information by applying multiple filters. A faceted classification system classifies each information element along multiple explicit dimensions, called facets, enabling the classifications to be accessed and ordered in multiple ways rather than in a single, pre-determined, taxonomic order. Reference: Faceted search.

In the early 2000s retailers started using faceted search, leading to its ubiquity as of 2012 in their online storefronts.
