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.
