Igloo promises Out-Of-The-Box Federated Search

Canada’s Igloo Software has launched a Multi-Service Search (MSS) widget that promises out-of-the-box functionality allowing users to search multiple file repositories from a single interface.

The first set of services supported through this enhanced search focuses on the major file sync and share vendors, SharePoint Online, Google Team Drive, Box, Dropbox and, of course, Igloo. Support for other file sharing apps will be added later.

"Providing users with a comprehensive and accessible digital workplace experience is a pivotal step in our mission to improve collaboration and productivity for our customers," said Dan Latendre , Founder & CEO of Igloo Software.

"Igloo's Multi-Service Search capabilities will give employees the tools to more efficiently access the information they need regardless of the repository it is located in."

Search is critical to the digital workplace experience. The new Multi-Service Search widget allows documents from multiple storage repositories to be searched from any location the drag and drop Multi-Service Search widget is placed.

Furthermore, because custom names for each service can be created and default folder paths can be set, search results can be highly contextualized to the surrounding content on the page.

The added capabilities dramatically reduce time spent searching for information and solves a problem that has plagued intranets for decades.
