Case Study: General Mills
General Mills Frees More Time for Innovation with Research-Focused Search Application
"By using FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint, our researchers can refine their searches and find exactly what they are looking for. They spend more time innovating than looking for information."
- Michelle Check, Research and Development Systems Leader, Global Knowledge Services, General Mills
To stay out front as one of the world's leading food companies, General Mills strives to get new product ideas out of development and onto supermarket shelves as quickly as possible. To help researchers take full advantage of information and expertise throughout the company, General Mills created a research-focused search application by using Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 and Microsoft FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint. Researchers enjoy faster and more accurate searches, which yields more time for innovation. Because researchers can perform more comprehensive and accurate searches, they minimize time spent duplicating efforts and benefit from the work of others. General Mills was able to meet 85 percent of its search needs with the out-of-the-box functionality available in the two Microsoft programs, and it is considering extending the solution companywide.
