FIND/SVP and Empire Media have announced the launch of Find.com, a business search engine developed to meet the search demands of business professionals. Find.com is designed to provide a solution for business professionals in need of precise and reliable business-related information. A newly-formed venture of FIND/SVP, Empire Media, and TripleHop Technologies, Find.com is a publicly-accessible search engine specifically created with the business user's information needs in mind. Find.com's searches are powered by retrieval technology that aggregates documents from major consumer search engines and combines them with results from business Web sites, as well as access to premium research content from business information sources. Searches can be further filtered by file format, site, and source - and search topics and results can be saved for future use.
The Find.com engine can simultaneously query its own index of business Web sites, launch a query into several consumer and news search engines, and connect to databases of premium research content to return one merged list of results. The Find.com technology can also be leveraged as a corporate-wide application that enables users to search simultaneously external sources of business information and their company's internal files, in a secure environment. Find.com premium content providers include The Gallup Organization, Frost & Sullivan, BNET, ChoicePoint, and NetContent. Find.com's premium content is made available on a fee per-document basis. Find.com is a partnership of FIND/SVP, Empire Media, and TripleHop Technologies. Find.com has been organized as an LLC, with FIND/SVP, Inc. and Empire Media owning 47.5% each, and TripleHop Technologies in the balance.
