Paris, 24th January 2012 - Top enterprise information search and access solutions publisher PolySpot announced today that it has been selected by Ten Alps to provide the new search engine for its Link2Portal.
Building visitor loyalty unifying content with a simple, efficient engine
Working with national trade associations and institutes, national and local government, public sector bodies, membership groups and private sector clients, Ten Alps publish more than 200 publications a year and have developed the unique Link2Portal site, to bring together the day’s news, analysis and exclusive opinions across UK and Global Trade, Logistics, construction and infrastructure, energy and sustainable development sectors. This information was previously isolated by each publication or subscriber list and as the volume of data was both growing rapidly, and becoming of increasing value to a widening readership, Ten Alps decided to invest in an information search and access solution to facilitate and enhance access to all of its information assets.
PolySpot’s flexibility, performance and implementation speed is unrivalled by any other player on the market. It took just three days to set up the content indexing, and the team at Ten Alps integrated the solution into the existing web site using the PolySpot Enterprise Search comprehensive API.
"With its simple, open architecture, PolySpot was the only platform capable of providing us with a unique B2B search engine, which optimises our content" says Stuart Brown, Managing Director of Ten Alps.
Unifying searches and data sources
Implementing PolySpot allows Link2Portal to offer its visitors a unified search tool that they can use to search all of the site's content. The engine indexes the structured content such as the business directory from an Amazon cloud-hosted CouchDB database, the site’s editorial content (which is managed by Drupal) via the OAI protocol, and the unstructured content of the thousands of publications available as PDF files and e books.
With PolySpot, a search on Link2Portal lets the user find news, a sector expert’s opinion, the e book for a publication, opened at the right page supported with industry solutions and suppliers information.
"The aim of Link2Portal is to facilitate information access for visitors to a major UK media group’s web site. We achieved this objective in just a few days and we are proud to have Ten Alps as a customer," says Gilles André, CEO of PolySpot.
