Mold-Masters Marketing Portal With Custom Search

"I Envision... a quick, easy, and effective method for users to find relevant documents stored in our new portal." - Mike Ellis, Marketing & Communications Manager

The Cli​​ent

Mold-Masters® is the largest dedicated manufacturer of hot runners and temperature controllers in the world.  Established in 1963, Mold-Masters® designs, manufactures and supports a full range of hot runner products, including hot runner systems, temperature controllers, hot valves and gating technologies. Headquartered in Georgetown, Ontario, Mold-Masters®  has facilities worldwide employing over 1,000 people, and serves customers in over 40 countries.

The ​Solution

When Mold-Masters upgraded their 2003 SharePoint Portal Server to Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, part of the process included migrating the old marketing portal’s files and metadata to a new SharePoint site.  The document library holding  all the relevant documents was vast - and users would have difficulty finding relevant documents with the out-of-the box SharePoint search functionality.  Envision IT created a custom search interface that allows users to search for documents based on keywords and drop-down lists, providing options that are tied to the metadata columns in the document library. Search results may be sorted by preference - and provide valuable information on document usage and modification.
