High Monkey Partners with Funnelback

Posted: 4/6/2017

High Monkey and Funnelback are happy to announce their brand-new partnership. The Minnesota firm will be working with the Australian-based software company in a mutually beneficial partnership that began in 2016. High Monkey believes this new partnership will help to improve and transform our client’s web experiences through integrating Funnelback's innovative search technology.

Funnelback is a search engine software that is typically deployed as a vertical search or enterprise search solution. Based in Canberra, Australia, the company provides technology that solves problems, using search as a powerful tool that can bring disparate data together in a way that transforms businesses. Funnelback has been a frontrunner in search technology, and their expansion into European markets has been a huge success. The company is well-established overseas, and High Monkey is excited to be their first official partner here in the United States.

"Partnerships have been the cornerstone of Funnelback’s long history of growth in Europe and Asia Pacific. As we expand into the key growth market of North America, this relationship with High Monkey has everyone excited for what the future holds,” says Ben Tilley, Vice President of Funnelback, “High Monkey shares our vision for search and complements that with a broad range of digital services, extending the benefits of search beyond the technology. We couldn’t be more pleased to join forces and help organizations to deliver a better digital experience.”

As a consultancy that focuses on Content Strategy with search as a key component, High Monkey is very enthusiastic about this new relationship. For most organizations, search tends to be an afterthought, and a way of trying to fix poor architecture.  At High Monkey, we can utilize the strength of the Funnelback toolset to not only provide sophisticated search results, but utilize its analytical and auditing tools to help clients identify problem areas and enhance their overall digital content experiences.

 “We are very excited for the opportunities this new relationship brings to High Monkey, Says Virgil Carroll, Owner and President of High Monkey, "For those that know us, they know High Monkey is very particular about the partnerships we get involved in and we see Funnelback as a top-tier search engine which fits well in helping us enable our client's digital content strategies."

The companies are already working on two projects together, and are looking forward to see what the future holds for their ongoing partnership. High Monkey will continue updates on this exciting new venture here on our blog—stay tuned for more.
