Houston, Texas, April 5, 2017 — Element Blue™, a leading IT consulting firm and solution provider of enterprise software products, today announced a strategic solution launched with Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., to enhance their consumer site search experience by implementing Lucidworks Fusion.


Konica Minolta Business Solutions, U.S.A., Inc., is a technology company that provides document management technologies and information services, including the manufacturing of office systems, printers, scanners and other systems. Konica Minolta Business Solutions information technology services includes managed services, cloud computing, and help desk support.


Element Blue, a global business and technology consultancy was selected by Konica Minolta to evaluate search technologies to address increasing customer support and marketing requirements, as well as document business requirements and implement a search solution that met Konica Minolta Business Solutions’ needs. Element Blue and Konica Minolta selected the Solr-based LucidWorks Fusion, a leading enterprise search platform as the technology solution for the search effort.


Element Blue worked with Konica Minolta Business Solutions to conduct requirements workshops, and design and develop a site search user interface, and integrated search experience that worked with existing portal technologies. “The new search implementation has made an impact to U.S. and Canadian public sites according to customer feedback. The integrity of what is being returned to users has improved considerably as well as the performance, “ said Deloss Schertz, Director of Information Technology.
