Award-Winning Desktop Search now available to the more
than 118 Million Users of IBM Lotus Notes
PASADENA, CA - May 5, 2005
X1 Technologies, Inc., a recognized leader in desktop search solutions, today announced the immediate availability of X1 Desktop Search with support for the IBM Lotus Notes® email messaging system. The more than 118 million users of Lotus Notes now gain access to critical knowledge stored in their email, attachments, contacts and files via one of the most robust, award-winning desktop search tools currently on the market.
"We've received hundreds of requests from Lotus Notes users in businesses around the world asking for a desktop solution that doesn't require them to change the way they work," said Josh Jacobs, president of X1 Technologies. "We're thrilled to provide these users with the rich search experience that tens of thousands of Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora, Thunderbird and Mozilla® users have come to depend on - enabling them to be substantially more productive."
X1 Desktop Search is the fastest way for PC users to find what they're looking for and puts an end to the frustration of searching and waiting that users experience when attempting to locate a particular email or file. X1 is easy to deploy - just download, install and index. Once it's installed, X1 sorts through the thousands of email messages, attachments, files and other information on a local or network-attached hard drive to find just the one the user wants. X1's comprehensive solution is comprised of a powerful set of features, including:
In addition to these capabilities, X1 Desktop Search for Notes provides users with:
- Search as you type. With each new keystroke, results are displayed and refined immediately with search terms highlighted in contrasting colors - in the list and in the documents themselves.
- Comprehensive file support. X1 indexes the content of more than 225 different types of files including Word, Excel, PDF, PowerPoint, ZIP, audio files and more.
- Contextual previews. In addition to indexing more than 225 file types, X1 also displays search results in their native format without requiring users to open the application it was created in - or even have it installed.
- Find and then act. Once users find what they're looking for, X1 provides a myriad of post search actions within the application itself.
"Our employees are looking for a way to better manage their increasingly large amounts of data, whether it's stored in Lotus Notes email message and attachments, files or company servers," said Gen Miake for Clarion Corporation of America. "X1 will provide us with an easy-to-use, comprehensive way of gaining immediate access to critical information in these data stores, thereby allowing us to work more efficiently."
- The ability to instantly search and refine all of their Lotus Notes email messages and attachments.
- Search capabilities for locally replicated Lotus Notes databases and Lotus Domino® hosted databases.
- Instant access to search contacts stored within Lotus Notes.
- Post search actions - the ability to reply, forward, print, move, delete and more - all without leaving the X1 interface.
X1 Desktop Search for Notes users will also be able to upgrade to X1's forthcoming product, X1 Enterprise Edition, which builds upon the success of X1 Desktop Search by adding additional capabilities that businesses and workgroups have requested, including better deployment and administration tools and a centralized index and search capability. Enterprises are looking for solutions to provide the information from disparate corporate data stores to their employees in a secure but easy to manage fashion. X1's solutions are scalable and extensible to fit within a company's existing data management infrastructure. Additional information about X1 Enterprise Edition can be found on the company's web site.
