Award recognizes Perficient`s expertise in enterprise search and successful
implementations of the Google Search Appliance platform
ST. LOUIS--(Business Wire)--
Perficient, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRFT), a leading information technology consulting
firm serving Global 2000 and other large enterprise customers throughout North
America, today announced Google Enterprise has named Perficient the Google North
America Deployment Partner of the Year 2012 for enterprise search. The award was
presented at the Google Enterprise Global Partner Summit in Mountain View,
Calif., and recognizes Perficient for its technical understanding of enterprise
search and proven track record of deploying the Google Search Appliance (GSA)
platform for customers. 

"At Perficient, our clients look to us to provide strategy, planning and
deployment expertise for the GSA platform," said Chad Johnson, Perficient`s
Google practice director. "We`re extremely honored to be named the Deployment
Partner of the Year. This award demonstrates that we can lead our enterprise
content management clients successfully through the enterprise search deployment
process from start to finish. We remain committed to providing leading-edge
search solutions for customers, allowing them to experience cost savings and
increased productivity." 

The GSA provides secure search across all enterprise content, including both
internal and external content. It can search web servers, portals, intranets,
file shares, content management systems, databases and real-time data in
business applications, doing so through the Google search platform. As a Google
Enterprise Professional Partner for more than five years and the first partner
to achieve the new Qualified Deployment Specialist certification, Perficient
helps companies realize the full potential of the GSA by enhancing the search
experience, implementing custom connectors to index enterprise content, and by
providing training and hands-on assistance. The company has developed content
connectors for applications such as Salesforce.com, Atlassian Confluence, IBM
Web Content Manager and IBM Quickr, among others, and it has provided complete
search interface solutions for customers. 

During 2012, Perficient implemented numerous GSA implementations for
organizations across all industries, including solutions for pharmaceutical,
e-commerce and software companies.

* A large pharmaceutical company needed a search tool with the ability to search
multiple repositories, including a clinical trials management system to find all
documents relating to the production of a specific product. Using GSA, they
could honor and preserve the security of systems in place to comply with their
document handling and regulatory requirements, and easily find all documents
related to the pharmaceutical in production. 
* An e-commerce site implemented Google search to materially enhance their
customers` ability to accurately search for products and product information.
The client anticipates increased client satisfaction and higher purchase
conversion rates due to the successful implementation. 
* A software company needed a way to search across multiple repositories.
Perficient partnered with the client and Google to improve the search experience
for their employees and customers using the GSA. Perficient helped migrate the
software company from their old search platform onto the GSA, improving customer
satisfaction while reducing maintenance costs.

"We are excited to provide this recognition to Perficient. The company has
consistently demonstrated sales, deployment and support excellence to our
customers throughout 2012," said Mark Hodgson, head of global partner programs
at Google.
