Vivisimo, a provider of intelligent clustering, search, and meta-search software for organizing search results, has announced that the University of Pittsburgh Health Sciences Library System, Effyis Inc. (BoardReader.com), the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), and FatWallet have adopted Vivisimo Velocity. Launched in Fall 2004, the Vivisimo Velocity search platform is designed to provide a single interface to search, meta-search, and cluster internal and external content. Instead of long lists of results, users are presented with results organized into categories.

University of Pittsburgh Health Sciences Library System uses Velocity to provide integrated access to a large number of third-party resources for the faculty, staff, and students in the schools of the health sciences, as well as the clinicians and staff of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC). Velocity lets users navigate the results, explore available resources, and uncover relevant content.

Effyis Inc., provider of online message boards search software, is using Velocity to search and cluster thousands of documents containing online survey data to discover the themes and trends in customer responses.

The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) is a professional organization representing physicians who treat people with cancer. ASCO will use Velocity in an effort to enable visitors to their Web site find what they are looking for easily and efficiently.

FatWallet, a provider of online coupons for everyday products, uses Velocity on its public Web site to let visitors locate special deals, vendors, and products.
