("Copernic") (NASDAQ: CNIC), a leading software development company in the technology sector, specialized in internet, desktop and mobile search products, announced the signing of a comprehensive partnership agreement to combine their expertise in search technology.

This partnership simplifies the information landscape for joint customers, merging content from the desktop, disparate data sources and business applications to provide a simple and unified search experience.

This partnership will extend the capabilities of Copernic’s desktop search solution to all enterprise content with Sinequa Enterprise Search.

This agreement between Copernic and Sinequa gives their customers the best of both worlds”.
