Tourism Australia selects ISYS Search Software for australia.com

Multilingual marketing site now using search facility

SYDNEY - 25th October, 2004 - ISYS Search Software (www.isys-search.com), a global supplier of search software for businesses and public sector organizations, today announced that Australia's tourism marketing agency, Tourism Australia, has implemented ISYS Search Software to deliver a user-friendly search function across all editions of its consumer and media website, australia.com.

Implemented by ISYS integration partner Intology, the new ISYS search functionality is designed to access a wide range of content and provide more targeted responses to search queries. Multi-lingual search support is a key component of the solution, as australia.com is published in 10 languages, including some that use double-byte Asian character sets.

The search project was a high-profile undertaking, involving a comprehensive, competitive vendor evaluation and selection process. The australia.com site is offered in a choice of over 60 tailored language/country combinations and is the primary platform for information delivery for Tourism Australia marketing campaigns around the world, featuring motivational destination information to inspire prospective travellers to visit Australia. At the same time, around 20,000 tourism-based businesses across Australia use australia.com as a source of promotion.

"Search is a vital piece of functionality for the australia.com site because we have so many stakeholders, including those who rely on the site for information to plan their trip as well as businesses whose products are featured on the site," said Graham Middleton, Acting Director Marketing Operations at Tourism Australia. "We needed to invest in both technology and implementation expertise in order to get the right outcome."

"We're obviously delighted to have been selected as the search engine for australia.com," says Sydney-based founder and Managing Director Ian Davies. "It's a sign of Australian achievement that not only can we offer tourists a wide range of fascinating, unique destination information via australia.com, but also that they can use an Australian-made technology to quickly search and retrieve information on these places."
