FACT-Finder Travel is a new semantic search system that targets online travel agents. By allowing users to enter free text during search and interpreting what users are looking for, the company seeks to garner a following among online travel agencies. The system interprets what users are looking for and populates search criteria boxes with the correct information.

We found this interesting information on Semantic Web.com in their article, “Improving Travel Search with Semantic Technology.” By using semantic technology, this search system increases findability and reduces clicks before reaching the desired results.

Indexing the documents is also an efficient way to increase findability within your data. Machine assisted indexing is a great feature in any document management system and it helps to reduce redundancy, but it is very important to choose a product that makes your content findable – easily and with thoroughness. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies and associated rule bases for machine assisted indexing.
