Back on April 3rd, Fishbowl announced that we had formed a partner relationship with Mindbreeze to bring their industry leading enterprise search solutions to Fishbowl customers. We will offer their Mindbreeze InSpire search appliance to customers looking for an on-premise solution to search internal file shares, databases, document management systems and other enterprise repositories.

Since that announcement, we have been busy learning more about Mindbreeze InSpire, including sending some members of our development team to their partner technical training in Linz, Austria. This also includes procuring our own InSpire search appliance  so that we can begin development of connectors for Oracle WebCenter Content and PTC Windchill. We will also begin using InSpire as the search system for our internal content as well.

Fishbowl’s Mindbreeze InSpire appliance arrived last week, and we wanted to share a few pics of the unboxing and racking process. We are very excited about the value that Mindbreeze InSpire will bring to customers, including the time savings of searching, and in many cases not finding, high-value information. Consider these stats:

  • 25% of employee’s time is spent looking for information – AIIM
  • 50% of people need to search 5 or more sources – AIIM
  • 38% of time is spent unsuccessfully searching and recreating content – IDC

Stay tuned for more information on Fishbowl’s software and services for Mindbreeze InSpire. Demos of the system are available today, so contact us below or leave a comment here if you would like to see it in action.
