iLink develops Voice Activated Search Aggregator on Mobile Platforms

iLink has developed a Voice Activated Search Aggregator that can aggregate content from various sources such as Search Engines (Google and Bing), Enterprise Knowledge Base(s), Organizational Learning Management Systems etc.  This search is activated either by Voice or as a text based search.  This search is currently available in iOS, Android and Windows Mobile Platforms apart from Web.  Such a search would come in very handy to enable people search from a hub rather than go to individual content sources within and outside the organization.  The more the content sources, they can be easily configured to become part of this aggregation and the search expanse becomes broader.
This search is being extended to leverage internal collaboration feeds such as Yammer and iLink plans to extend this to integrate SalesForce Chatter, at a later date.  iLink has made this available in all Mobile Platforms such that people can use this on the move very much like Siri (Apple) or Cortana (Windows).  iLink plans to build Machine Learning capabilities into this Search Aggregator so that it can learn from your history and prompt search results appropriately depending on your earlier searches.
This search can be extended to aggregate from various content management systems used within Global Enterprises.
iLink specializes in Mobility Consulting, Mobile Application Development, Mobile enablement, Mobile Marketing etc.  iLink has developed various B2B, B2C and Enterprise Mobile Applications that cater to diverse industry segments such as Retail, Education, Commercial, O&G, Telco and has helped various ISVs launch their Mobile Platforms through turnkey projects.
