DENVER - June 21, 2004 - ISYS Search Software, a global supplier of enterprise
search solutions for business and government, has announced that US Synthetic
Corporation has selected ISYS:desktop to provide its research and development
engineers with sophisticated desktop search technology for better managing
and retrieving intellectual property (IP) information.
Founded in 1978, US Synthetic is a leading supplier of Polycrystalline
Diamond Cutters (PDC) to the oil-drilling industry. With an active R&D
group, the company maintains a knowledge base of thousands of industry
patents and information related to this IP, most of which is contained
in HTML and PDF. US Synthetic selected ISYS:desktop for its advanced search
features and ability to index and retrieve data at the granular PC level.
"Prior to implementing ISYS, our IP team relied on vague recollections
of prior work and lengthy searches of our master list of patents,"
said Eric Pope, IP manager, US Synthetic. "With ISYS, this search
process has been cut down from countless hours each week to mere seconds.
Our engineers can now conveniently search all of our IP related to a particular
new design or invention, which helps us save time and increase productivity."
As a company with 16 years' experience in desktop search, ISYS delivers
a solution that quickly and easily guides users through the three key
stages of search - query, results navigation and discovery. Features include
multiple query methods, filtering, sorting, user-defined synonyms, word
tense expansion, hit highlighting and hit-to-hit navigation.
