Xerox Premier Partners Team Up with GraphicBrain.com
Press release from the issuing company
August 20, 2002 -- In their continuous effort to provide added value to their Premier Partners, Xerox has teamed up with GraphicBrain.com, the industry search engine. Xerox offers Premier Partners full access to the GraphicBrain.com resources. The Premier Partners can not only retrieve and access nearly 3 million documents, they also have the ‘personal assistant’ at their disposal. And even a private virtual network has been created specifically for them.
"This is great news both for us at GraphicBrain.com and for the Xerox Premier Partners. We know that we are providing an unrivalled service, but the fact that an industry giant like Xerox is backing us, certainly adds to our credibility", says Eddy Hagen, manager of GraphicBrain.com. "It’s a validation of the fact that our continuous efforts to improve our service are highly appreciated by people who know and use GraphicBrain.com."
The goal of the Xerox Premier Partners Program is to share knowledge between graphic arts professionals. The GraphicBrain.com service perfectly fits in with this goal. The search engine makes it possible to retrieve very specific information, e.g. magazine articles or messages from discussion groups on a certain topic. And the personal assistant lets you formalise a recurring query into an agent. At a user-specified frequency these agents will send an overview of the documents that fit the query.
The most futuristic service is the ‘this week’s special’, which gives the user an overview of documents that fit the user’s profile. A profile that is automatically generated in the background, based upon the queries launched and documents consulted. With the virtual network that has been created for them, the Xerox Premier Partners can find colleagues with the same interest and share their experiences.
