KTH Royal Institute of Technology Selects ayfie for Improved Search on Website

NEW YORK: ayfie, a leading provider of enterprise search and big text analytics solutions, announces that KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden's largest and most prestigious technical university, selected ayfie Locator and ayfie Predictor to improve the search experience of its website.

As the number of researchers, students and projects have increased, so has KTH's website traffic — so much so that its previous search engine couldn't keep up. After a comprehensive assessment, KTH turned to ayfie to deliver smart search features such as advanced filtering and pointed searches. ayfie Predictor's enhanced search delivers real/search suggestions rather than a predefined list of keywords.

In addition to the new search function, a number of other improvements were also introduced. KTH can now specify the search content, add more detailed search suggestions and offer smarter searches on people, discussion groups, programs and courses.

It was important to us that we could fulfill all of KTH's functionality requirements and deliver with short start-up time. KTH has shown a great understanding of the products we deliver which made it easy for us to adapt and ensure that we were all on the same page for the challenges KTH wanted to solve. We will support KTH with continuous improvements, including plans to add special searches, such as searching for individuals and their skills — the kind of functionality that we've all come to know thanks to LinkedIn, said Rob Wescott, CRO, ayfie Inc.
