2008 Winner Profile

Modine Manufacturing

Project Description:
The company deployed an enterprise search tool for its 5,000 employees that delivers search results in hierarchical clusters. Users looking for corporate information about a topic can more easily identify the most relevant documents. They can also tease out additional information by remixing the results. The search tool is one feature of the company's global intranet, which is used daily by 90 percent of employees. The maker of heating and cooling equipment says the intranet has generated some $3.6 million in productivity savings.
