Pingar introduces new Impressions Search Platform
Posted on 9-Jun-2010 09:00 | Tags Filed under: News



New Zealand company Pingar today launched its new search algorithm ‘Impressions’ at the Microsoft SharePoint Conference in Wellington.

Established in 2006, Pingar has developed a semantic search platform that returns comprehensive search query results inside formatted PDF or XPS documents.

Pingar’s Impressions has been developed with Professor Wai Yeap at AUT University along with his team of artificial intelligence experts using a $1.7M grant from the Foundation of Research, Science and Technology. AUT University’s Centre for Artificial Intelligence Research (CAIR) is one of the key research centres in New Zealand and part of the School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences.

Pingar’s founder and Managing Director Peter Wren-Hilton says that Professor Yeap’s has been at the forefront globally developing algorithms for Web-based applications. Yeap has been instrumental in creating Impressions and also assisting with the development of new search verticals for industries such as law and pharmaceuticals.

“What Professor Yeap and his team at AUT University have done is deliver a more advanced version of the Pingar search platform. Impressions will radically speed up the delivery of key information to enterprises and businesses looking to minimise the cost of desk-based research,” says Wren-Hilton.

Pingar is launching the two new verticals at the same time as additional value-added services to Microsoft SharePoint users.

“We decided to include two new verticals for the pharmaceutical and legal sectors so that in-house teams or the pharma industry can more easily narrow down the time spent on search and produce great efficiencies. Both sectors are good examples of knowledge-heavy industries where there is a lot of very industry-specific terms and jargon which will benefit greatly from a more focused, enhanced search approach ,” says Wren-Hilton.

Professor Yeap says that he and his team are very proud of the part they played in developing and commercialising Pingar’s technology.

“The Impressions platform is an exciting step forward. It is very much the next-generation of search engine technology and at the cutting edge of technology available today. We are confident that the search results will speak for themselves once the platform is unleashed – faster delivery of data and even more internal efficiencies for companies from reduced time retrieving information – when this is translated across a large enterprise the ongoing cost savings will be significant,” says Professor Yeap.
