Dieselpoint customers include retailers, wholesalers, publishers, government, healthcare, technology firms, and companies in a variety of other industries. Applications that are leveraging our Java search and navigation software include product catalogs, document search, site search, intranet/enterprise search, knowledgebases, and embedded OEM search.
Here are a few success stories for customers that have deployed our search software:
McGraw-Hill is a leading global information services provider meeting worldwide needs in the financial services, education and business information markets. Its publications include Business Week and Aviation Week.
When editors and others at McGraw-Hill voiced a need to search the company’s publication archives, the IT team turned to Dieselpoint. The archives comprise 700,000 articles and several gigabytes of data.
McGraw-Hill evaluated a number of search software alternatives. They chose Dieselpoint for the project because Dieselpoint offered robust functionality at an affordable price. Speed was an important selection attribute. Dieselpoint, known for its performance, lived up to its reputation and brought back results very quickly.
It also provided a way for users to navigate through articles by date, publication, author, and other document metadata.

With annual revenues of over $1.3 billion, PSS/World Medical is the country’s largest provider of medical supplies to the physician, long-term care provider, and home care provider markets. It distributes thousands of products to 100,000 offices in all 50 states.
PSS/World Medical chose Dieselpoint Search to power its online catalog, which is the primary source of product information for its customers and its 750 field sales representatives. It is also installing Dieselpoint on the laptops of its sales representatives to provide offline access to detailed product and pricing information for over 130,000 different medical products.
The company considered EasyAsk, Mercado, and Endeca, but ultimately selected Dieselpoint. They chose it for its flexible support for attribute search and navigation, pure Java architecture, small footprint (required for laptop deployment), performance, direct access to the API, and the quality of the search results.
The support for attributes made it easy to create a sophisticated site that allows users to navigate, search, compare, and display product characteristics.

The hospitals and clinics of Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) provide leading-edge health care services to patients throughout Oregon and the Pacific Northwest.
Dieselpoint powers the search capabilities of OHSU Health, an online health information resource that provides information on general health topics, OHSU doctors and OHSU clinics.
OHSU evaluated Google Search Appliance and Dieselpoint. They chose Dieselpoint for the project because Dieselpoint provided web site search like Google, but provided much more control over relevance ranking and the design of search results pages. OHSU also liked Dieselpoint’s ability to work with SQL databases, which was lacking in Google.
