GSA The US General Services Administration provides procurement and access to 44 million products from 20 thousand vendors to federal agencies across the US. With Lucidworks Fusion, they were able to move from HP’s IDOL to a faster, leaner application that provides faster response rates and higher relevancy. Users expect the accuracy of Google and the ease-of-use of Amazon and Fusion helped the team deliver a better user experience. The team migrated the entire search application from HP’s IDOL to Lucidworks in just 90 days.

eCommerce Division Director, GSA IT

"Since we've migrated to Solr, we've seen great improvement in search relevance. GSA Advantage now provides over 44 million products and services online from over 20 thousand vendors. Our users expect the accuracy of Google and the ease-of-use of Amazon. Solr has drastically reduced the time it takes for customers to find what their looking for. We've seen very positive results within just the first few months of our implementation. Lucidworks gave us great support and expertise needed to migrate our systems from IDOL to Solr in under 90 days, inside a pretty complex infrastructure."


Lower TCO, Proven Technology

Many search solutions get expensive at scale – especially since the volume of data is always increasing. Fusion is priced per node so you can scale to billions of documents while containing costs and reducing your hardware footprint. Fusion is built on top of Apache Solr, the most reliable and scalable open source search engine on the planet. Solr enables Fusion to scale cost effectively across commodity hardware or in the cloud while delivering the vital capabilities your users need.


Search the Data Lake

Many organizations have yet to see a return on their data lake investment because they don’t have an effective search app. All the data and documents are now in one place but users can’t find what they need. Fusion provides everything you need to build basic and custom search apps for the various customers searching your data lake. Fusion includes powerful, secure search to the entire data lake to quickly identify the necessary data for your application and secure it so only those authorized can access it.


Powerful Advanced Capabilities

Legacy search apps have primitive, limited functionality, no relevancy tuning, and require constant upgrading, licensing and maintenance. Fusion is built on the latest technology stack, enabling you to quickly deploy advanced features across your organization including type-ahead, suggestions, recommendations, and more.

"Fusion gave us the features we needed to replace Google Search Appliance in a matter of weeks. With Fusion’s out-of-the-box capabilities, we skipped months in our dev cycle so we could focus our team where they would have the most impact. We cut our licensing costs by 50% and improved application usability. The Lucidworks professional services team amplified our success even further. We’re all Fusion from here on out!"
