Core Solves Accountancy Firm’s Productivity Issue with Microsoft Search Server 2008 Express. 

London, UK, 9 July 2008 – Core’s case study is published by Microsoft on its deployment of Microsoft Search Server 2008 for Brebners, a leading accountancy firm based in London.

Partners at Brebners faced issues constantly with the search tool they used to find critical information in the firm’s 250,000 document library. Brebners deployed Microsoft® Search Server 2008 Express and liberated partners and staff from regular indexing failures overnight. Now they can work more productively and maintain the firm’s reputation for personal customer service.

Brebners faced issues with finding crucial documents within in their search portal which often led to productivity suffering and staff members losing confidence in the system. Brebners decided they needed to improve the solution and enlisted the help of Core, a Microsoft Gold Partner.

Core was eager to try out a new product from Microsoft called the Search Server 2008 Express as with its no pre-set document limits it would easily handle the number of documents on Brebners portal.

The staff at Brebners were encouraged to use the new search function and the results were good news.

“Now that partners and staff have a reliable search tool, we can work more productively and improve customer service. And with virtually no effort, we have a scalable solution to grow our business.  Testing Search Server 2008 Express was a very peaceful experience” says Maurice Taylor, Chartered Accountant and Partner at Brebners.

Core was able to turn off the old search solution within just a couple of weeks and now everyone in Brebners is using the new search tool. Conor Callanan of Core commented on how effective Search Server 2008 Express is,

"It now takes six hours to index 250,000 documents, compared to three days with the old solution. We had been looking for an answer to Brebners’ problem for quite some time, and this was more than we hoped for”.
