A recent survey suggests that just half of all employees are confident about their company's search software.
The study by research group AIIM found that 49 per cent of those surveyed are unhappy with the situation, and feel that finding company information is a difficult and time-consuming process.
Additionally, 69 per cent believe that less than half of their company's information is searchable online, and 38 per cent estimate that less than a quarter of the information they need can be found by way of a search query.
The result, according to the researchers, is a frustrated and disappointed workforce.
"Despite the advances made in search on the internet, enterprise search leaves most users frustrated," said AIIM vice president Carl Frappaolo.
"The pain of finding enterprise information has moved from the piles of paper on the desktop and in storage cabinets, to the digital landfill of file servers, email inboxes, digital desktops and content management systems."
The researchers blamed the problem not on the indexing and search systems, but on the corporate direction of the companies.
Of the 500 businesses queried in the survey, only 10 per cent considered the ability to find documents 'imperative'.
The researchers noted that many businesses have yet to set specific plans and formal goals for collecting and properly indexing company information.
