Xerox Adds Verity Navigation Tools to Intranet

Xerox Corp. added search capacity to its intranet portal Monday using index and navigation tools from Verity Inc.

Verity's solutions are designed to provide Xerox with a "one-stop shopping intranet portal" that allows employees to search, retrieve, classify and disseminate business-critical information from a single site. Verity will provide Xerox with its Information Server and Spider tools, designed for indexing and navigation data.

"We chose Verity because its products enable us to deliver an intranet portal to enhance our current knowledge management capabilities, providing the means to centrally locate information from more than 8,000 intranet Web sites distributed globally," said Christopher Noyes, manager of Internet services for Xerox Corp.

"Today, Verity's search engine is embedded in our DocuShare product which we believe will provide a solid foundation for a corporate-wide standard searching capability in the future."

Verity is also providing on-site consulting services to Xerox to ensure the portal's successful deployment.

"We are pleased to be working with Xerox to help the company not only index and retrieve its large number of documents, but also to provide a single search engine that in the long-term can offer multi-lingual support and a consistent interface for users to gain access to mission-critical information residing on the Xerox corporate intranet," said Anthony Bettencourt, Verity's senior vice president of worldwide sales and product marketing.
