About the project
El País, one of the largest media companies in Latin America, needed to significantly enhance its web search technologies to make it easier for media searchers to find critical information.
How we worked with the client
Working in stages with the client we developed a new search technology while taking full ownership as well as improving the architecture of this project.
Both our scientists and developers created a new search engine using several new technologies for making search easier, faster, and independent of a user’s own language or lexicon. As a result, El País now enjoys a streamlined experience while conducting searches and has extended its search technologies to a catalog-based offering.
