“The dtSearch configuration we chose gave users the ability to search in parallel on the offline DVD data and on new material from the Internet.”
A leading Swiss IT services company, ELCA has helped its clients successfully leverage information technology innovations for more than 30 years. ELCA currently has a workforce of more than 300 highly skilled engineers. Headquartered in Lausanne, ELCA has subsidiaries in Zurich, Geneva, Bern, Paris, London and Ho Chi Minh City.

A major international organization tasked ELCA to provide search access to its multinational database through a number of different vehicles. As the search engine in all of these applications, ELCA chose the dtSearch Text Retrieval Engine. "We choose dtSearch because of its versatility, speed, reliability and its ease of use," explained a Manager of ELCA. "We liked dtSearch's ability to build indexes incrementally, and to search on multiple indexes for documents spread in many directories."

First, the organization asked ELCA to post its data on the Internet. The organization's operating system of choice for this vehicle was Linux. Second, the international organization asked ELCA to write an application allowing the organization to automatically master DVDs containing its data. "Using a fully functional version of dtSearch as the search engine on the DVDs, ELCA was able to provide end-users the ability to search the data on DVD without requiring installation on the workstation. The dtSearch configuration we chose gave users the ability to search in parallel on the offline DVD data and on new material from the Internet."

Bridging the gap between business and IT, ELCA believes that new technologies will create real value for companies who consider these opportunities as strategic. ELCA proposes original solutions and services on a European basis. Ranging from consulting to software development and product integration, ELCA delivers value by combining technology and design.
