Find relevant and secure access
to information across your organization

  • Unified access to several data sources

    Happeo provides unified access to several internal and external information sources from a single interface, including content from your intranet’s Channels, Pages and People. Employees can also access shared and private information from the connected Google Workspace app like documents, PDFs or photos from Google drive, Gmail and Google calendar. Unified access makes it possible to leverage valuable content and deliver it to employees and by giving permissions to Channels and documents it’s easy to control who has access to information. Afraid that you can’t find the information you’re looking for? 

  • Hashtags

    Hashtags are a great way to categorize content across our intranet platform and to search and find it conveniently. You can add hashtags to posts and comments that are shared in Channels and Pages to make postssearchable. Hashtags can also be used in the search bar to find related posts, people, channels or other information that contain the same hashtag.

  • Elasticsearch

    Ever wondered how tools like an intranet are able to handle and search all kinds of data? This is where Elasticsearch comes in. Happeo uses a custom Elasticsearch cluster to index posts, comments, pages, users and groups. Elasticsearch makes it possible to search and analyze big amounts of data in realtime and also enables search suggestion and autocomplete search fields.

All suggestions are based on an employee’s search logs or on content’s descriptive metadata and have information from Pages, Channels and People.

Advanced search features

semantic search
  • Semantic Search

    Organizations are forced to deal with a growing amount of information and it becomes increasingly hard for employees to find the information they are looking for. Semantic search focuses on analyzing and understanding the meaning of a query. It then not only shows results based on the keyword but also results that are relevant, including the ones that contain synonyms of the search term. Happeo provides this technique to show more meaningful and relevant search results

  • Search Analytics

    Besides searching for information and data, enterprise search is expected to help management gain actionable insights from the search data. Happeo’s advanced analytics feature shows exactly which keywords employees search for and what content and pages are most popular. Analytics like this can measure the effectiveness of an intranet and be of great help in making improvement to content and important business decisions.

  • Data Security

    Happeo makes intranet security a priority and takes several measures to implement it. As a trusted Google Cloud Partner Solution, organizations benefit from Google Cloud's technology and world-scale infrastructure. All documents and files are stored securely in Google Cloud and backed up on servers in secure data centers. Even more safety is guaranteed by controlled document access, which makes it possible to define the access rights for each document.

User friendliness

Happeo’s universal search has a simple user interface and is very easy to use, which provides an excellent user experience. Even with only partial keywords employees can find documents and people quickly. With semantic search more relevant and personalized results are provided for users.

Usage of categories

The autocompletion of queries completes words and phrases when users start typing and improves the user experience. What makes the search result page especially user-friendly is the usage of categories. View the search result page and click through the category taps to find your content even quicker. Categories include Pages, People, Channels, emails, posts, files, and calendars.

Don’t waste your time searching for anything

Who doesn’t know this situation: ‘I remember reading something at some point but I can’t remember where I saw it or I can't remember when I saw it.’ If you have the same issue, Happeo is a huge time saver. Go to the search box, type in a query and Happeo’s enterprise search will look through your personal and shared content in Channels, Pages, People as well as your connected Google Workspace apps as Google Drive, Gmail and Google calendar. Our universal search finds content in different formats like PDF, docs, images, videos and emails.

Show me the email address and calendar of our marketing director

In organizations, it's sometimes hard to know who is responsible for what, and knowing everyone’s contact details. Enterprise search is a way for employees to find colleagues and their contact details, to connect with each other and gain insight into a company structure. Searching for a colleague is especially easy because the whole profile card is searchable. Look for a name, email address, position, manager name or location and find your colleague in the search results.

Get me the latest version of my company’s policy documents

Organizations typically use an intranet to provide access to documents to keep employees informed and engaged. Use Happeo's enterprise search to make your company policies and procedures readily available. Allow employees to find documents quickly by simply entering a keyword, keyphrase, author or related search term. Having easy access to policies and procedures helps employees to stay up to date with rules of conduct such as attendance, dress code and privacy.

Show me the PDF of our marketing plan

Organizations produce content in different document types. PDFs are one of the most popular document types and it should be easy for employees to find them. Happeo’s universal search finds unstructured data like PDFs making it easy to manage and access them.

Show me photos of the last customer roadshow event

A social intranet lives from content in form of photos and videos. “Do you remember the last holiday party? Let’s have a look at the photo!” With an enterprise search, no company event can be forgotten. Happeo’s universal search finds photos based on keywords in title, content and file name.

Show me company updates and news from last month

To keep all employees informed about the latest company news Happeo provides a news feed. But what if you were on holiday for a couple of weeks? With enterprise search, it is easy to go back and find the latest news for a department, team, or any other topic.
