To stay out front as one of the world's leading food companies, General Mills strives to get new product ideas out of development and onto supermarket shelves as quickly as possible. To help researchers take full advantage of information and expertise throughout the company, General Mills created a research-focused search application by using Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 and Microsoft FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint. Researchers enjoy faster and more accurate searches, which yields more time for innovation. Because researchers can perform more comprehensive and accurate searches, they minimize time spent duplicating efforts and benefit from the work of others.
