Salt Lake City, UT - April 19, 2007 - MuseGlobal and Swets are pleased to announce the implementation of MuseGlobal's innovative Content Mining tool into SwetsWise Searcher, Swets' hosted federated search service. Swets is the first MuseGlobal partner to integrate this new feature, which helps users quickly and easily refine search results.
The Content Mining tool allows users to quickly drill down to the most applicable information by 'mining' the returned search results on each query, identifying common terms found in those results and weighting the terms based on frequency. This ground breaking new feature will help users achieve increased productivity through reduced search time and more effective research through improved relevancy of results.
"We are delighted to partner with MuseGlobal in introducing this exciting new federated search capability to information professionals and end-users through SwetsWise Searcher," stated Thomas Snyder, Chief Commercial Officer of Swets. "The Content Mining functionality is more than just a categorization tool as it does not force categories on users, but instead provides a guide that enables them to quickly build the most effective search query for the most relevant results. It is the latest example of our commitment to offering SwetsWise products that efficiently provide expanded visibility and usage of an organizations' carefully acquired content-all from a single, integrated interface."
"By launching our Content Mining technology in SwetsWise Searcher, we immediately bring this innovative tool within reach of Swets' 60,000 global customers in the academic, corporate, medical and government market," said Graeme Wilson, VP of MuseGlobal's Partner Program. "MuseGlobal and Swets form an optimal partnership, as both companies aim to offer advanced, yet cost-effective, tools that provide users with intuitive and streamlined access to the information they seek in today's increasingly complex electronic environment."
SwetsWise Searcher is Swets' "out-of-the-box" federated search service. Customers can select up to 30 source packages from a comprehensive list of more than 4,000 data sources-the largest knowledgebase currently available. This combination of a hosted IT environment and extensive source database enables fast, easy implementation. SwetsWise Searcher also offers comprehensive web-based administrative tools and personalized search profiles, giving administrators control over the configuration and customization process and providing users with greater control of their search experience.
