High quality search results that deliver better business outcomes coupled with lower ongoing management overhead associated with administering the site search are key outcomes achieved by this change.
Canberra, ACT (PRWEB) July 21, 2009
The Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research (DIISR) business portal, http://www.business.gov.au, is the latest high profile Commonwealth agency to use Funnelback search through the Whole of Government AgencySearch program sponsored by the Australian Government Information Management Office (AGIMO).
Mr. Mike Sibly, General Manager, Online eBusiness Services for DIISR said, "High quality search results that deliver better business outcomes coupled with lower ongoing management overhead associated with administering the site search are key outcomes achieved by this change."
Mr. Stuart Beil, Funnelback's Executive Director said, "Search on http://www.business.gov.au now features not only results from the business portal itself, but also from content contained across all Commonwealth, State, Territory and Local Government websites. This type of tiered search allows the user to localise their requests and ultimately provides a much better and more personalised search experience."
"For example, by entering your postcode in the search form, results from your State or Territory and Local Government will appear, thus providing personalised search results", said Mr. Beil.
http://www.business.gov.au is the Australian Government's principal, award-winning business website that offers simple and convenient access to government business information and services. It provides comprehensive information on planning, starting, running and exiting a business along with services such as ABN Look up to search for publicly available ABN details, and GovForms for finding and managing government forms.
