BRANCHBURG, N.J., Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Zetetic releases Connect, a search tool for company whitepages, to serve an economic climate ripe with mergers and acquisitions.

The period following the close of a merger is often characterised by increased cross-team communication. In an M&A scenario, Connect seamlessly brings both parties' contact and messaging data together in a single web-based interface with a great mobile experience, so employees get unified search capabilities from Day One, even across different directory platforms, e.g., Exchange, Notes, and Zimbra.

Deployed in hours, Connect accomplishes what is normally the arduous process of spanning separate company phone books and messaging systems. The result is an easily navigated search and self-service tool for locating and managing personnel and group information.

Connect is a "white label" product, flexible and tailored to reflect company branding through color scheme, logos, and language. Easily customized to satisfy each company's needs and brand, Connect publishes contact details such as name, job title, reporting hierarchy, personal photo, email, phone numbers, etc.

Connect's built-in mobile interface is optimized for iPhone, Android and BlackBerry to suit professionals on the go -- tap to call, email, and navigate reporting hierarchy and groups intuitively.  Connect also includes powerful tools for managing user passwords, security groups, and distribution lists with minimal impact to existing infrastructure.

Not limited to corporate use, Connect is ideal for any organization in need of fast, flexible contact management. Large educational institutions and health providers with disparate directories benefit tremendously from Connect. Speaking of Connect's immediate value at Coriell Institute, CIO Scott Megill says: "Connect eliminated an age-old manual process of printing and distributing an employee directory... Now, information about our staff is accessible everywhere and always up to date."

Connect is a simple, practical, web based whitepages application that integrates with Active Directory, LDAP, Oracle, SQL Server, and other database platforms to publish company contact information. For more information visit
