FORT MYERS, Fla., Oct. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Yippy, Inc. (OTC: YIPI) ("Yippy" or the "Company") a unified enterprise search company, today announced due to rapid growth it has expanded its staff with two key hires in an effort to stay ahead of an impressive growing pipeline of Yippy Search Appliance orders.
The Company is in an excellent position to capture a significant share of the search appliance market, which we estimate to be a $500 million market as of 2016. In February 2016, Google announced that it was sunsetting the Google Search Appliance (GSA), the leading product in the search appliance market. The potential result is a significant market dislocation, as thousands of organizations are facing a time-sensitive need to replace the Google Search Appliance.
"I want to personally welcome two of my former colleagues from IBM," stated Mike Pointer, Chief Operations Officer, Yippy, Inc. "Mr. Mike Maguire, and Ms. Morgan DeFelippis both veterans of Vivisimo and the IBM Watson team who will serve Yippy as Director of Enterprise Search Technology and Director of YSA Support respectively. Due to the rapid growth of our pipeline for the Yippy Search Appliance (YSA) and my desire to give our customers the best experience from concept to delivery demands the right people and Mike and Morgan are top in their respective operational capacities."
"Yippy has taken the search appliance market by storm with our Yippy Search Appliance (YSA) since the sunsetting announcement of the Google Search Appliance (GSA), the former leading product in the search appliance market. Since the launch of the Yippy Search Appliance the company has had multiple installations in the Healthcare, Oil and Gas, and Communications sectors," stated Richard Granville, CEO, Yippy, Inc. "The response has been amazing, and we have beaten all competitors in the market very easily due the quality of our product, speed of installation, and of course the depth of our software stack and search results."
To further increase its footprint Yippy is hosting a webinar Thursday, October 6, 2016, at 3pm EST, for largest international Google Search Appliance (GSA) resellers to introduce them to the Yippy Search Appliance (YSA). With Google and other companies moving away from the appliance space to the cloud there is a huge need for companies who want to keep their information behind the firewall. The combination of Yippy's document and field level security are allowing enterprises to empower their employees with critical information in a safe and secure manner. Registration closes at 5pm ET, October 5th, 2016. The presentation will be made available at www.yippyinc.com/webinar for those who missed the event.
