Search

Enterprise Search

"Clients are thanking us for providing a platform that lets them understand, use, and integrate the full range of our analysis on different topics, sectors, companies and geographies."

Robin Knight, Marketing Manager, PFC Energy


As the volume of information on your website increases so does the need for a robust and well designed search solution. In the face of vast amounts of material and a wide array of user needs, traditional navigation yields to faceted navigation and internal site search for immediate, curated results. Organizations for which information is a primary revenue driver have the ability to derive real monetary value from exposing their intellectual property through search.

If more than 5% of your site traffic engages your site search functionality, search is something of paramount importance to your organization. At NavigationArts, our user experience designers unlock the potential behind search with extensive user research, usability testing, customer surveys, and traffic analysis. We create faceted taxonomies, controlled vocabularies, and search parameters that serve key organizational goals and user needs.


Effective Enterprise Search Systems:

  • Allow visitors to explore content, products, and services on their own terms
  • Provide accurate results for users that translate into repeat visits, increased traffic, page views, and time on site
  • Gauge user intent and provide boundaries for queries
  • Set security control for users
  • Play a pivotal role in the overall enterprise information management structure

Search is a crucial part of any solution, whether for an external-facing website, intranet, portal, custom application, mobile website, or mobile application.  Our developers work with best of breed search applications such as Coveo, Endeca, FAST, Google search, custom built solutions, and more.
