Information Retrieval

Information Retrieval














































The supply of information on the Internet is outrageous. There is barely any topic not covered. However, due to its uncontrolled nature, the Internet contains a lot of redundant, 2nd hand and sometimes even misleading information. A typical Internet research yields a ratio of 1:100 or even higher between useful and useless information. Besides the difficult choice of the right search engine leading to repetitive time-consuming searches, you also have to screen the results for the few raisins of helpful information.

InfoTom uses the Internet for information retrieval since more than 8 years, spending 10 hours and more per day online. This excessive behavior resulted in a well-founded experience in choosing the right search engines for the specific needs of a retrieval. Our knowledge in the software market allowed us to pick the most elaborated metasearch bots allowing to further reduce time spent online and to increase the effort of searches.
