Voyager Search Announces Strategic Partnership with Safe Software; Looks Forward to Building Upon Success of York Region

Mar 6, 2018

REDLANDS, CA – MARCH 6, 2018 – Voyager Search, a global leader in enterprise search solutions specializing in geospatial data and content, today announced a strategic partnership with Safe Software, the developers of FME®, today. “Finding, sharing, and using an organization's data has never been easier,” says Brian Goldin, CEO at Voyager Search. “Voyager’s ability to index and catalog an organization's data holdings provides the framework for search and discovery. Once found, customers can quickly leverage FME’s data processing workflows to deliver content, overcoming the challenges of getting the right information, at the right time in the right way.”

This partnership marks a long track record of success, including a collaborative program that lead to the award-winning success of York Region’s data sharing initiatives. York Region’s Geographic Information Services Branch, recently renamed the Data, Analytics and Visualization Services Branch, has used Voyager Search and Safe Software’s technology as a synergistic solution to discovery, conversion, and search to develop the Self Serve Data Depot and YODA (York’s Online Data Access Catalog).

“In the past, GIS analysts within the Branch had done this work manually,” said John Houweling, Director of Data, Analytics and Visualization Services at York Region. “The conversion of data into multiple formats was time consuming and difficult to maintain. But now with the Voyager/FME Server integration, partners and consultants can download data in the format and projection system they want. Users add the data they want to their shopping cart in Voyager, and when they checkout FME Server processes the data and sends a download link to the client when the processing is complete.”

Voyager and FME work seamlessly together. Voyager provides the search and discovery of disparate data, and FME converts, transforms, and automates that data whenever and however it’s needed.

“We are always looking for new ways to make our data more accessible and discoverable for users,” said Houweling. “Voyager provides an easy-to-use experience for the user to find our data, while FME Server does all of the heavy data processing. This ensures users get our latest data whenever they need it.”

And, that’s exactly what the new partnership between Voyager Search and Safe Software is all about, bringing the best technology to industries everywhere.
