Desktop Search for your company

Today, we are pleased to announce a new section on our website. We are now offering an Entreprise section to www.copernic.com.

Copernic Desktop Search has been beneficial to over 4,000,000 users and the business world can now also benefit from it.

According to International Data Corporation, their survey reveals that information worker, you, spend most of their time performing document-related activity. Here are some interesting facts on how workers spend their time:

  • 5 hours/week searching for documents.
  • 2.3 hours/week searching for, but not finding documents

That’s at least 2.3 hours of hours wasted per week for having not the appropriate tools. According to their studies, time wasted in document creation and management activities costs the organization $ 9,071 per information worker per week. That’s a lot in a year when you can install a tool, such as Copernic Desktop Search, for the price of $ 64.90 USD per license. The Return on Investment calculation is easily made.
