IF Metall is a large Union with over 100 years of history, focusing on equal value for all. Their 300,000 members collaborate to build equality, solidarity, and freedom within the workplace. The trade union works hard to protect the rights of their members and ensure the best working conditions. 

A Search that is Blurry.

For IF Metall it is vital for them to have a search that works, meaning they can provide equal access to information for visitors and members in order to maintain and build their union. IF Metall strives to protect all members ensuring safe working experience, fair practices, and equal opportunities, thus members need to be able to search on their site for documents when they have inquiries. Their old search was operating on outdated algorithms and technology that did not do a full sweep across all their resources, databases, platforms, and applications causing information to be lost due to keywords missing, file size or type. Additionally, these keywords do not contextually understand the questions, nor do they allow for misspellings or grammatical errors in searches resulting in inaccurate results. In short, IF Metalls search was the traditional search before, and for most of the traditional searches, they are broken.
