We provide a connector-based software portfolio that solves internal enterprise search problems by deploying internet-like search within your existing infrastructure. Our technology delivers unparalleled enterprise search experiences that focus on users – delivering highly personalized and relevant results. By bringing the internet to the enterprise, we help maximize the value of intranet and digital transformation projects.
We are passionate about what we do because we believe enterprise search is broken.
As internet search continues to evolve and provide a better user experience, business leaders are mired with internal complaints because their knowledge workers, who are searching “store-by-store”, can’t find what they are looking for inside their organizations. This frustrates employees, creates a poor experience, and has a negative impact on productivity.
Employees Are Frustrated and Wasting Valuable Time
Each day knowledge workers around the world waste an enormous amount of time searching for documents and data across corporate intranets and other enterprise infrastructure. These are the same workers who can take out a smartphone or tablet and immediately locate a nearby restaurant or compare hotel prices around the globe. They are frustrated that this type of internet search simply isn’t available within their corporate intranets when navigating the many data stores across their own organizations.
With enterprises maintaining more data than ever spread across a variety of growing applications and data stores—both on-premise and in the cloud—the problem is only intensifying.
What’s At Stake? It’s In the Numbers
Analyst firms and organizations have conducted studies and analyzed data to try to better understand the productivity loss that occurs when employees cannot find the information needed to do their jobs. The amount of time that is being wasted is eye opening. For example:
- Employees spend 1.8 hours every day searching and gathering information *McKinsey
- 61% of knowledge workers regularly access four or more systems to get the information they need to do their jobs, 30% access seven or more, and 15% access 11+ systems *IDC
- 57% of employees state that difficulty finding the right information is a top contributor to lagging productivity *8×8
We Make Information as Easy to Find Inside an Organization as it is Outside
