New Zealand-based Pingar has developed its next generation "intelligent" search solution, and is showing it off at the Microsoft SharePoint Conference 2009 in Las Vegas. This is the first time the Microsoft Start-Up Accelerator Partner will demonstrate its new search solution and marks the product's, and the company's, global launch.
“The intelligent enterprise search tool that can be embedded into the upcoming release of Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 will take the browsing out of browsing,” says Pingar’s co-founder and Managing Director Peter Wren-Hilton.
“Currently, according to IDC, 50 percent of searches don’t find the answer the person is looking for. Pingar can help change that,” says Wren-Hilton. “Pingar can help you find data faster and spend your time analyzing it as opposed to searching for it. This is of real value to large enterprises with vast amounts of information,” he says.
According to the company, the Pingar software changes the face of mainstream enterprise search. Pingar’s solution goes inside data documents, finds the content the user is seeking and then places it into a dynamically generated PDF or XPS document, rather than just presenting a list of links like the traditional search model. Pingar’s solution also sorts the search into categories to minimize reading times.
“Pingar shares Microsoft’s vision to offer solutions with significant productivity and cost-savings for enterprises,” said Owen Allen, SharePoint senior product manager, Microsoft, Corp. “Smarter searching and content management is an integral part of the efficiencies offered by SharePoint Server 2010.” The company has been identified by Microsoft as having high-growth potential, being accepted into the Microsoft Start-up Accelerator Program in the United Kingdom last year.
Pingar’s global debut at the Microsoft SharePoint Conference 2009 is the culmination of a year that has seen the company launching offices in Hong Kong and Swansea, Wales while appointing leading venture capitalist and former investment banker Chris de Boer as non-executive Chairman.
