When one of Italy's largest pharmaceutical conglomerates needed a high performance general purpose search solution for their internal and external websites, they turned to MaxxCAT. Farmindustria was looking for an internationalized appliance that could handle multiple languages, but that would not be overly complicated to install and configure. Two days after receiving their EX-5000, Farmindustria was up and running with a minimum amount of configuration or customization effort.

"MaxxCAT has done a good job of simplifying search without sacrificing performance" states Farmindustria. "We entered a handful of URLS into the administration screen of the appliance, and were getting output shortly thereafter. The challenge of building multiple user interfaces to query the appliance was straightforward because of the use of JSON. We spent most of our time working on the search page user interfaces, and very little time struggling to learn how to use the appliance. It just worked".

Farmindustria was looking for a low-maintenance solution to their search problem that would not require a specialized staff to operate or configure. MaxxCAT has allowed the existing Farmindustria staff to meet the organization's search requirements without disrupting their other projects or schedules. Furthermore, because MaxxCAT is an open solution, the API was intuitive and based upon tools (JSON, JavaScript, HTML) that are already familiar to everybody in web development. Enabling character support for ISO Latin character set is straightforward, and the appliance can provide output in multiple languages, or limit searches to a given native language.
