Enterprise Search

Surveys have shown that employees can spend up to 20 – 30 % of their day searching for data and information.  SharePoint eliminates this drag on productivity by providing the robust search functionality needed to find the information and expertise buried in the thousands, or hundreds of thousands of files a company generates in the course of business.

Benefits of Enterprise Search:

  • Enterprise scalability. Not only can you search for data stored in SharePoint, but search capabilities can be extended to external applications such as ERP systems
  • Contextual relevance. Users can define criteria to return search result relevant to them
  • Powerful people and data search. Find people and expertise using the same search interface
  • Security trimmed results. Search results are trimmed so that only permitted information is returned to a user's query

CASE STUDY

"Search has been a major benefit. Just having search features within SharePoint allows staff to find content and update it in seconds. In the past, we didn't have that, so content got stale."
