(Vancouver, Canada – February 5, 2010) SydneyPLUS International, developer of leading edge KM solutions for clients around the globe, now delivers relevant information in four mouse clicks or fewer. Users no longer have to guess what keywords to use, no longer have to sift through irrelevant hits, and no longer risk missing vital documents because of an incomplete or inaccurate search strategy. Ideally, most users prefer to have information find them, rather than having to search for it. Based on user preference profiles, the SydneyPLUS Information Manager can now mine and deliver enterprise information resources even more effectively than ever by:

  • Eliminating keyword searching
  • Cutting through up to 10,000 documents with fewer than four mouse clicks
  • Automatically channeling only relevant information to your users

This bold approach to information delivery has been embraced by the Pacific region‘s largest law firm and SydneyPLUS client. Their portal is designed without a keyword search box. If the portal does not automatically deliver targeted results based on the attorney (or staff) user profile, a hierarchy of choices is presented that allows the user to mine exactly what's needed from thousands of pieces of information, in fewer than four mouse clicks.

This approach eliminates a classic problem with keyword searching by answering the question: "how do you search for something if you don't know it's there?" Users no longer have to waste time guessing the right keyword or sifting through irrelevant hits. They can rest assured that all relevant documents will be presented, each and every time.

SydneyPLUS clients have long recognized the value of providing portals that speed information delivery and are personalized to their users' individual needs and preferences. For more information contact SydneyPLUS at (604) 278–6717 or contact sales@sydneyplus.com.
