Everything you want to find and more with Universal and Federated Search
Create more productive teams by giving everyone easy access to the information they need. Happeo's Search will find everything in your platform, Google Drive, OneDrive and SharePoint. Add Federated Search and content from third-party platforms will show up in the same search bar.
Find and get quick, relevant and secure access
to information across your company portals
Make your Universal Intranet Search even more useful with suggestions, also called "autocomplete predictive search". To get started, type a search query and you'll see the first search suggestion in the search box with more queries suggested right below the search bar. All suggestions are based on an employee's search logs or content descriptive metadata and have information from Pages, Channels and People.
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 posts searchable. Hashtags can also be used in the search bar to find related Posts, People, Channels or other information that contain the same hashtag.
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.
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. And it doesn’t stop there. With Happeo’s Federated Search, you can also search through various apps. That’s right, one search bar with results spanning from across different mediums and locations.
Advanced search features
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? Happeo’s hashtags and advanced search features predict and autocomplete your search queries and help you find information faster and easier.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Browse through different file formats and data sources
With Happeo's Universal Intranet Search you can search and browse through different formats and content types — regardless of whether the data is structured, or unstructured, like in documents. You can search and browse through different formats and content types, including documents, tables, PDFs, e-mails, photos, and videos.
