Voyager Search Adds New Community Extension in the Latest Release

By CIOReview | Wednesday, February 10, 2016

REDLANDS, CA: Voyager Search, the only spatially enabled, enterprise search and data management solution has recently released, version 1.9.7 of its award-winning search software. The latest version consists of delivery and transformation options, improved security, and a new Community Extension to its Navigo app, which enables organizations to augment their indexes with more user-generated content. By not requiring users to be developers, Voyager Search bestows the power in the hands of the people who know their content best–ensuring that data stewards can promote their top content at all times.

The Community Extension, developed in response to customer request for deeper analysis capabilities consists of tagging, flagging, and field-editing control to those most familiar with the content. With this new feature in place, administrators can easily and quickly select items to feature on the Navigo homepage so that users don’t miss the latest updates, and users can augment any field in the index using the Edit Fields tools, regardless of whether or not they are developers or engineers. Moreover, subject matter experts can create saved searches that are relevant to their community and make the searches available on the homepage as a collection.

“We’re especially excited about Navigo’s Community Extension in Voyager version 1.9.7,” said Alex Bostic, Solutions Architect at AECOM. “With it, we can tag, flag, and augment the index, which allows us to do things programmatically instead of on a user by user basis–saving time and streamlining a process that can at times become rather cumbersome. Supported by Voyager’s powerful API, this gives us that extra level of customization we were looking for, making it easier to group items from a particular data set, promote the data, or analyze how it is being used in a clearer, more useful way.”

Voyager Search serves Fortune 500 businesses, federal agencies and multinational organizations with search, data management solutions, and application customization for efficiency, simplicity, and advanced security features that enterprises require. "With this new release our customers, and their users, can directly contribute expertise back into the index, resulting in improvements in content, search result relevancy, and community building capabilities,” said Voyager’s CEO, Brian Goldin. “This is something our customers have been asking for, and we’re more than happy to deliver.”
