2006 KMWorld Promise and Reality Finalists: Exalead
Headquartered in Paris with offices in New York, San Francisco and Milan, Exalead is a global provider of search software for business and the Web. The company was founded in 2000 by François Bourdoncle and Patrice Bertin, both pioneering researchers for AltaVista, on the notion that the process of information search and retrieval had become too hard.
To help ease users' frustration with search, Exalead developed the first and only unified search technology platform—exalead one:search™—that easily and effectively handles all search forms—from the desktop to the Web, regardless of size or type. The platform serves as the foundation for Exalead's entire product range (desktop, workgroup, enterprise, datacenter, Web).
Exalead offers a wide range of innovative search technologies and features, including fuzzy matching and thumbnail image previews for all search results. Its patented navigation system offers a list of related terms and categories to help users broaden or refine a search in just one click. Exalead's search by serendipity® approach is resonating with users across the globe—from researchers and librarians to bankers and CEOs.
