ORLANDO, FL (PRWEB) February 25, 2004
312, Inc., a software development and Web services company, today announced the release of LeanIndex(TM), a platform-independent personal search engine and LeanSwap(TM), a free Web-based information sharing service and key component of 312's LeanOn312(TM) Web services solution.
LeanIndex personal search engine is simple to use and finds information fast. It runs from a profile created by the user that contains keywords to look for, Web sites to search, the time between searches and how the user wants to be alerted. LeanIndex only searches Web sites the user pre-selects and trusts to keep them up-to-date with reliable news and information. LeanIndex is platform-independent and runs on Windows(R), UNIX(R), Linux(R), Macintosh(R) or any other JAVA(R) enabled system.
LeanIndex simplifies a user's ability to find what they need allowing them to make better-informed personal and business decisions. Three Twelve's LeanSwap service creates a new Web community for sharing LeanIndex search profiles, tips, tricks and ideas. "312 created LeanSwap so people searching the Internet can now find other people who have similar interests and exchange ideas, tips and Web information sources," said Brian Neilson, 312's co-founder and chief executive officer.
A New Era of LeSS - 'Lean Social Searching'
"LeanIndex and LeanSwap join together to introduce the concept of LeSS(TM) - 'Lean Social Searching(TM)' - by establishing a process methodology for retrieving and distributing information, the foundation of knowledge management and most importantly, knowledge transfer," said Andrew Kiolbasa, 312, Inc. Chief Operating Officer and head of product development. "The value stream map has been reduced to a single Lean process. With LeanSwap, companies can establish a community for collaboration their customers and suppliers can Lean on for timely information and knowledge transfer," Kiolbasa explained.
312's LeanIndex ends the information overload and frustration of searching the Internet. "I used to surf my favorite Web sites, page-after-page, scanning the headlines looking for pertinent information, now LeanIndex does it for me and saves me a lot of time and aggravation. It also alerts me throughout the day with breaking news and information that could impact my business," said beta tester Kathy Yurks, founder and President, All Things Environmental, Inc. "With LeanSwap for sharing search profiles and ideas, LeSS is more. I'm searching more topics and getting important data in the time I used to spend just scanning. Now I'm researching not searching and that represents real value to me and my business," Yurks added.
