Search Technologies a Leading Independent Provider of Search Engine Implementation Launches New Search Application for State and Local Government
(News4us.com) December 13, 2010
Search Technologies, the leading independent provider of search engine implementation and support services, announced today the availability of a new search application for State and Local Government based on the Apache Solr open source search platform.
The new service provides similar functionality to the award winning Federal Digital System – http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys – developed by the United States Government Printing Office in cooperation with Search Technologies.
According to Kamran Khan, CEO of Search Technologies; “We believe that the work we’ve done with the US GPO over the past 2 years building out the Federal Digital System can be easily re-purposed for State, Local and City use. The synergies and potential cost savings are huge. Providing easy online access to public information, based on low-cost infrastructure, will help Government deliver value for money”
State and local government makes a wide range of information available to the public, yet it is often difficult for the public to find specific information when they need it, resulting in frustration for the user, and increased costs for government as people fall back on more traditional methods of contact.
The model used by the Federal Digital System provides multiple navigation options based on departments, state officials and other key information, to guide users and simplify the search experience.
