The SKF Group of Sweden Chooses FAST to Create Company-Wide Knowledge Management System

Leading industrial company to boost employee productivity and improve customer services with innovative enterprise search solutions.

Fast Search & Transfer, a developer of enterprise search technologies and solutions, has announced that the SKF Group of Sweden, a global supplier of industrial products, solutions and services, has signed an agreement to deploy the FAST Intranet Solution, based on the FAST Enterprise Search Platform, for search and information retrieval across the company's knowledge management system.

FAST's Intranet Solution automatically aggregates both structured and unstructured data from all corporate sources to create an intelligence portal that quickly analyzes and retrieves information that is immediately actionable. SKF is working with FAST's Nordic partner Findwise ( to implement its company-wide knowledge management system which will give employees the ability to quickly search all content repositories through the simplicity of a single search box.

"As SKF continues to grow and build its international business, we have an increasing need to share information and knowledge among our workforce," said Jens Tornquist, Director, Group Knowledge Management at SKF. "The challenge for an organization of our size is to bring people together over geographical and organizational boundaries. With FAST's Intranet Solution, we are confident we will be able to increase employee productivity and ultimately improve customer satisfaction."

"In response to the increasing adoption of enterprise search around the world, FAST has established local offices and partnerships to address corporate business needs," said FAST CEO, John M. Lervik. "FAST's new office in Sweden and our relationship with Findwise will ensure a successful implementation of our Intranet solution at SKF to boost productivity across their organization."
