Lucidworks announces new SaaS platform

Springboard is a multi-tenant SaaS platform that powers applications for search, browse, and discovery that offers outcome-optimized solutions for non-technical users.

“The Springboard design philosophy is that high-quality search at scale should be easy for anyone to deploy and cost efficient. Customer feedback drove our roadmap of applications for specific solutions, including our first publicly available application, Connected Search,” said Will Hayes, CEO of Lucidworks. ”We’re making it easy for customers to create connections between people, capture and understand signals that show preference and intent, and improve the total experience for customers, service agents, and employees without requiring search or development experience.”
