Oxford, Michigan and Orange, California – December 22, 2011 – Alcove9 LLC, a leading intranet search software provider, today announced its membership in Automation Alley.  “We look forward to meeting like-minded entrepreneurial and innovative thinkers,” says Alcove9 President, Sam Abu-Hamdan.   “We’re confident that Alcove9 can make a valuable contribution to Automation Alley’s Vision statement of “…making Michigan globally acknowledged as the leading technology and innovation region in the United States…””

To that end, Alcove9 provides a product that allows companies to reduce the frustrations of sifting through masses of information by providing a simple, intranet search engine that can rapidly and easily find and access their content. The A9 advanced search capabilities provide users a single, unified access to all structured and unstructured data throughout the enterprise, regardless of its format, content or location. In addition, Alcove9 can access the unstructured content of file systems and folders that are often rich sources of data needed for timely decision-making.

Being that Michigan is so heavily steeped in manufacturing and engineering, this makes Alcove9 a natural fit with industry in this State.  Its primary focus is on the integration of commonly used engineering/manufacturing tools like CAD/CAM, PDM/PLM, ERP, ECM, MRO and MES.

Furthermore, for those companies on a Lean/Six-Sigma journey, the a9 Suite of Products further aids in increasing employee efficiency and effectiveness by providing them the means to work on value-added projects instead of wasting time in searching for what they need or have already created.
