Over 258,359 professionals have used IT Central Station research.
Compare the best Desktop Search vendors based on product reviews, ratings, and comparisons.
All reviews and ratings are from real users, validated by our triple authentication process.
The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score.
The score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score.
(20 points for Reviews; 16 points for Views, Comparisons, and Followers.)
Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in
that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product
with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 20% (weighting factor) *
80% = 16. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 32 points awarded linearly based on our
rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution
for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews;
two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old,
as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.

What do you think of Lookeen?
I can search my Microsoft Outlook emails and my desktop files at the same time. I also love the preview function in the search pane.

We're using a shared index for our company, so everyone in the company is able to search from a single index. That means that each computer has more resources available for other things because they aren’t being used to update an individual index.
• Room for Improvement:
I would like to see SharePoint integration and possibly even mobile search.
• Use of Solution:
We've used it for nine years.
