Excalibur Technologies Corp. said its RetrievalWare knowledge retrieval and search system has been installed by Europay International, the European payments association closely linked with MasterCard International.
The software has been integrated into Europay OnLine, a marketing, security, and business-information service provided to the Belgium-based association's 9,000 member institutions.
Excalibur RetrievalWare is also utilized by 600 Europay employees in Europe.
Modeled after the MasterCard OnLine service, Europay OnLine is a Web- based extranet accessible to members and designed to increase productivity and information flow.
"Informed decisions are based on timely, precise, and complete information," said Olivier Pleska, Europay's manager of interactive applications development. "This process requires on-line availability combined with a powerful search solution," he said, adding that Excalibur's "goes far beyond text and document searching."
