The prestigious London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) chose Funnelback to power its external web and intranet search.

Mr. Stephen Emmott, Head of Web Services for LSE said, "Funnelback has transformed the LSE website's search facility. We can now offer users the ability to refine results using sub-topics to help them easily pick out the information they're looking for. Moreover, Funnelback's excellent support team have helped us optimise the search facility's performance, something we can't reasonably do in-house."

Mr. Stuart Beil, Executive Director of Funnelback said, "LSE is recognized as one of the world's leaders in social sciences research and the fact that they have put their faith in Funnelback as a means to deliver key information to their website users, including the latest research outcomes, is a testament to our core search technology and service delivery model."

LSE have set up Funnelback to search all external LSE website content as the default. Searches can also be restricted to specific groups or faculties.

The public events search facility on the LSE website is also powered by Funnelback. This helps users find out when and where events such as the next concert or public lecture are to be held.

The new Funnelback website search service for LSE is now live on http://www.lse.ac.uk
