Making multiple Enterprise-type sources searchable!

Enterprise Search

Unified Search across corporate document shares and solutions.

In the business environment of today, time and knowledge are the most important resources. But all businesses and organisations waste these away on daily basis and thereby not utilising the potential of the business.

Information Challenge

Internal knowledge

Time is spent on finding the information or the person with the right knowledge, at the right time, which is relevant to make a particular business decision. Information or access to knowledge is available in both structured and unstructured form dispersed across the organisation itself, which is not for people to aggregate and synthesise with ease.

Consider other waste scenarios

Time spent by IT personnel, specialists and consultants, managing company information and solutions that store, organise and give access to it. Employees that create and maintain information that will match already existing information. Documents are misplaced, mislabelled or forgotten. Information that never leaves the employees heads, due to “too much work” in publishing it, so colleagues can access it and utilise it.

Time Consumption

Nearly half of a knowledge worker’s time is non-productive, spent gathering information, converting formats, unsuccessfully searching, or recreating content that already exists.

Even the 25% of time spent on successful searching, while productive, represents an inefficiency that can be dramatically reduced. Ineffective access to data leaves knowledge workers spending only 26% of their time on their core task: analysis of information.
