Intellext Releases Latest Version of Watson Search Tool

ntellext ( announced the release of Watson 2.3, an upgraded version that adds people and company content from Zoom Information, Inc. (ZoomInfo;, a drag-and-drop feature for easy information collection, and Yahoo! Desktop Search integration. The product is designed to provide richer delivery of people and company information to Watson users. Watson is an intelligent search tool that proactively finds and delivers relevant information to users.

As part of the deal, Watson recognizes when someone is looking at information about people and companies and queries the ZoomInfo search engine for relevant results. Content from ZoomInfo is then delivered to the user in Watson's sidebar interface.

The new drag-and-drop feature simplifies the process of incorporating information that Watson finds into the user's work. Any result that Watson finds, whether a Web page, e-mail, or desktop file, can be dragged from Watson's sidebar interface into the program the user is working on, then dropped for easy information collection.

Watson 2.3 also now supports and integrates with Yahoo! Desktop Search and includes several performance and stability improvements, such as the elimination of the need to reboot after installation.
