“Given the large array of built-in functions and the much improved user interface design platform of SharePoint 2013 Search, many customers are going to be able to quickly stand-up basic and even moderately complex search services on their own.” said Efrem Habteselassie, CEO of ACIS Consulting. “Our Search Competency Center services are intended for those customers who need to deploy more complex search portals that must be highly optimized to address core business productivity requirements. In this case we work with our customer teams to design, build, deploy and conduct knowledge transfer to enable customer teams to take over system management and upgrading to future releases.”

In a typical company, it is estimated that 10% of knowledge workers’ time is wasted searching for information. For a company with thousands of employees, this is a pretty significant amount of wasted dollars annually. Justifying a business case for improving search is fairly straightforward.
