Jul 15, 2003

Verity Inc. has announced the availability of Verity Ultraseek release 5.1. This new version of the company's downloadable enterprise search software incorporates several new capabilities designed to reduce administrative overhead while enhancing the end-user experience. A feature of Ultraseek 5.1 is Layout Manager, a versatile graphical user interface that reduces the administrative effort needed to design and deploy multiple search interfaces and results pages. It is designed to give administrators the ability to control all aspects of look and feel as well as search options, including results display, default collections, categories, passage-based summaries and spell suggest. Layout Manager also allows delegation of this activity to business-line managers to permit better match of specific departmental requirements. Reporting Manager, another new feature of Ultraseek 5.1, offers administrators insight into users' search behaviors and changes in search patterns to permit improvement of search relevance and usability. Detailed analysis reports can be generated on a wide range of search processes to help administrators and business-line managers improve the search relevance on their Web sites, including top search queries, queries yielding no results, top requested documents, and query trends. Verity Ultraseek 5.1 also supports new file formats, including Star Office 6.0, OpenOffice 1.0 and .zip documents. Verity Ultraseek 5.1 is designed to allow users to spend less time searching for information and more time acting on it through a set of new features that optimize the way results are displayed and through intelligent analysis of content source. These new features include: Title Replacement, Results by Location, and In-Document Term Highlighting.
