No Site Search Solutions will manate to cover all the needs of a company. Even though key functionalities of Copernic Search Server and Azure Search are obviously a priority you should also thoroughly explore the integrations supported by each solution. Quote frequently your team will already be working with other types of B2B software in your company and it’s much wiser to select products that integrate well with each other. That way you will be able to ensure a smooth transfer of information between your teams and software used, which can considerably reduce time devoted to migrating between one service and the next.
