Exalead to Demonstrate Smart Search Solution for Travel and Leisure at PhoCusWright Conference Travel Innovation Summit

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - November 10, 2009) - Exalead, a global leader of information access solutions and search-based applications for the enterprise and on the web, today announced that it will demonstrate its Smart Search solution for Travel and Leisure at The PhoCusWright Conference Travel Innovation Summit. Exalead's Smart Search enables Travel and Leisure web sites to provide highly personalized and relevant advertising, promotions and information content to consumers at a modest cost. Consumers gain a more trusted, more relevant travel planning and booking experience. Travel and Leisure enterprises gain increased repeat traffic, higher conversion rates and increased revenue. Smart Search is based upon Exalead's industry leading CloudView search- and semantics-based application development platform.

"We're demonstrating what we think is a game-changing approach to personalizing on-line travel arrangements," said Paul Doscher, CEO of Exalead. "With Smart Search, we provide consumers with a 'my travel agent' experience even though they are interacting with a web site. For example, a trip could be based on an event like a New York Giants football game and Smart Search would recommend travel, accommodations, dining and complementary attractions."
