The applications offer a user-friendly directory search feature with results shown in real-time as you type. The system searches automatically among multiple fields so there is no need for the user to create explicit search queries. To find John in the sales department, just type “joh sal” and all users matching this string will be shown with their current presence state displayed. The presence information of the search results is updated in real time as they change without any need for a new search.
Integrating with Microsoft Outlook provides additional search results from the user’s Microsoft Exchange account. Corporate directory search is also supported through 3rd party IP desk phones.
The search engine searches simultaneously in private and company directories and displays both search results in individual result fields in PC, Mac and mobile devices. Mobile applications for Android and iOS provide a synchronization option where users sync directories making them available for offline use. This enables low cost and faster searches when traveling or out of data access.
