PORTLAND, Maine, Sept. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Comperio, a leading enterprise search technology and consulting company, has formed a relationship with UNICEF (United Nations Children's Fund), founded by the United Nations to address the long-term needs of children and women in developing countries, to improve UNICEF's international website.

Comperio, www.comperiosearch.com, was selected as the company's technology and service partner to assist UNICEF in improving the usability and user search experience on their flagship website, www.unicef.org. UNICEF needed a robust solution that was fast, easy to implement, and offered superior design. Comperio's Front technology provided the optimal solution by leveraging the FAST Enterprise Search Platform that was already in place.

Comperio's US team has helped re-launch the site's overall search functionality and design, making it more user-friendly and providing more accessible site content. By introducing a sidebar search functionality, in addition to improving the site's main search capabilities, Comperio's Front technology will help strengthening the user experience in delivering both news articles related to UNICEF as well as relevant UNICEF site documents.

Comperio Front is a comprehensive software suite that enables highly dynamic search solutions. It is designed to provide organizations with the necessary flexibility needed to control and operate the search solution on a daily basis across a variety of content types for massive volumes of users with different needs and requests. Comperio Front provides significant upside and cost savings to companies through improved user interfaces, streamlined business process management and new insights with Front Analytics.

"As we were looking to enhance the unicef.org website and allow users the best access to information about our organization, Comperio delivered the most comprehensive search solution for us with their product Comperio Front. Comperio Front is easy to use and enables us to offer a dynamic search service for the millions of users we serve across the world. By using Comperio Front we significantly reduced the implementation time and got access to best-in-class search functionality out-of-the box. Comperio works quickly and effectively, and they will be a great partner in improving the overall user experience on our site," said Stephen Cassidy, Chief of UNICEF's Internet, Broadcast and Image Section.

Bjorn Laukli, Head of Comperio's US Operations, said, "We are thrilled to have entered this strategic relationship with UNICEF. UNICEF has such an incredible, positive impact in the world, and being part of solving their technology needs is very exciting. As we roll out new releases to the website, we will continue to improve upon site features and search functionality with Comperio's products.
