City of Laredo Extends Its Use of ISYS Search Software to Its Website

Longtime Customer of ISYS' Network and Desktop Search Solutions Adds Advanced Information Retrieval Capabilities to its Website

DENVER - July 19, 2004 - ISYS Search Software (, a global supplier of enterprise search solutions for business and government, has announced that the City of Laredo, Texas, selected ISYS:web to power its search capabilities at The government organization's recent purchase extends its ability to derive timesaving benefits from search software.

Since 1996, the City of Laredo has used ISYS:desktop for searching information on its PCs and networks. By implementing ISYS:web, it has enabled all City departments and community citizens to conduct advanced searches across 14 years of City Council minutes. Previously, retrieving information from these documents was a time-consuming, manual process conducted by the Office of the City Secretary.

"Searching City Council minutes isn't always an exact science, and in some cases a person isn't completely sure what they're searching for," said Gustavo Guevara, Jr., City Secretary and Website Administrator, City of Laredo. "Because of these variables, the manual process we were using was incredibly time-consuming. ISYS:web has been a tremendous tool for my staff, as it has relieved them of this onerous task. As a result, we've saved countless hours and can now focus on more pressing projects. It has been a big benefit to our citizens as well."

In addition to leveraging ISYS' ability to search multiple file formats, highlight search terms, and sort by a variety of criteria, Guevara said his department most often uses the ISYS Menu-Assisted Query features, such as Boolean and proximity operators for more targeted searches.
