AssetTradex asked Flax to assist with performance tuning of an Apache Solr-powered search engine for construction, mining, farming, transport, medical and shipping equipment.

‘We turned to Flax to help us in the development of a structured search engine for used equipment. As the system required a fast search capability we chose to use Apache Solr, however our own developers struggled to get the required performance. Flax performed an initial diagnostic and followed up with revised search code the performance of which exceeded our expectations. During the first meeting, Flax demonstrated deep domain expertise and immediately understood our functional requirements – more importantly they ultimately delivered on their promise. Very refreshing!’
