Use PROLibraries as your learning management system (LMS)? FUSE has got you covered. PROLibraries is owned by Digitell. Consider this scenario: a visitor comes to your site to research a topic they need to speak about at a regional meeting. They conduct a search using FUSE which tells them ‘here is some professional development we have that matches the term(s) you entered.’ The visitor wasn’t considering LMS content in their research. Now they can include it in their talk or share it with attendees as a resource. This is one reason we love searching/federating LMS content.
FUSE connects to your SAGE implementation so we can index your journal content. This is so important since most organizations have this content behind lock and key or expose (or search) only an abstract of the content. FUSE indexes the content in its entirety so your members can discover what it has to offer. If they’re not signed-in, however, when selecting a protected search result they’ll be prompted to do so. Talk about the value of membership!
Fun fact: Sitecore was born in Denmark. As one would expect with a leading content management system, the available API is robust and well documented. Nothing is worse than running a worldclass CMS like Sitecore only to weaken it with search that is needlessly complex or doesn’t give your users complete visibility into all of your content. Federated search with FUSE is the icing on the cake.
Sitefinity has roots back to Telerik - for all you .NET fans out there - which was all gobbled up by Progress Software, a $400mm company headquartered in Massachusetts, in 2016. A web service must be configured for FUSE (or you can use an existing one) - docs.sitefinity.com/for-developers-client-side-programming-and-web-services.
The artist formerly known as Small World Community was acquired by Personify back in 2016. Sometime between then and now it was renamed Personify Community but you’ll still see lots of references to it as ‘Small World,’ including its API which we use to get at your data.
It goes without saying, indexing your community is absolutely a key part to the FUSE value proposition — prospects (or not-very-engaged members) won’t know those great conversations are taking place otherwise.
One of the things we absolutely love about FUSE is including Tweets among your search results. Some organizations complain about members not being interested in social media - FUSE is a great way to push social media to them and leverages the investment you make in maintaining your social media presence.
We’ll use Twitter’s API to index your tweets. First, you’ll need to apply for a developer account (don’t worry, it’s painless). Of course, being Twitter, the API team has its own handle (by nerds, for nerds).
OK, OK, Vimeo was the first to support HD which was a big deal at the time. Some clients run both Vimeo and YouTube - with FUSE you can include both! We use Vimeo’s well built API to index your videos. We’ll need for you to generate an API Key and an access token for us to get started. As with all of our video integrations, we’ll show a thumbnail and abstract right in the search results listing which looks super sharp.
WordPress runs about a third of the internet. Wow. FUSE uses its REST API to get to your content. Sometimes WordPress hosts your primary website - we often come across it, however, serving an external blog, meeting or conference, foundation, public service, or similar site. If you’ve got WordPress, FUSE has you covered. Want to search using FUSE from any of your websites? No problem - FUSE’s search results can be embedded anywhere simultaneously across multiple web properties.
Many organizations have fantastic content on YouTube that their constituents rarely see - nevermind search. We really like including video content among your search results - we’ll include a nice thumbnail along with an abstract (we suggest you verify the automatic transcripts YouTube comes up with).
FUSE will need you to generate API keys for us. If you've never done this before it can seem a bit complicated. Even though it's YouTube, Google centralizes all of its products’ API access under Google APIs. So, you need to sign into the Google API Console - be sure to do this signed in as the target channel's admin. Continue reading about generating YouTube API Credentials for FUSE.
Another AMS owned by Community Brands (acquired in 2017). We use Nimble’s Fuse API (no relation) to index Nimble content. One nice thing about Nimble AMS is that it's built on Salesforce, so we can also use the huge Salesforce API options to get at any other content you may store in Salesforce.
Abilia’s netFORUM was acquired by Community Brands in 2017 and is now part of that giant’s portfolio. So what have you got? netFORUM Pro or netFORUM Pro? We use Abilia’s REST API to connect to netFORUM data. Imagine your members’ delight when they see netFORUM content results alongside content from your CMS, LMS, Publisher, Job Board, etc.!
Kentico has reached Gartner’s magic quadrant for web content management every year since it first appeared in 2015. We have a web service we’ve written so FUSE can index your unstructured content. For everything else, we use Kentico’s API. While Kentico’s out of the box search is fine, most organizations need to reach beyond and that’s where FUSE comes in.
We love connecting to job boards since they provide your site visitors an unexpected surprise: “Pssst. You may not have been looking for one, per se, but here are some open jobs that happen to match your search.” FUSE takes advantage of JobTarget’s API to pull your organization’s job listings and show filters like location, salary, travel requirements, level of experience needed, and much more (there are over fifty different metrics). You’ll need to request a “p_token” from your JobTarget account executive.
HighWire was founded by Standford University in the mid-nineties to serve organizations that produce journals and other scholarly publications. Accel-KKR purchased majority ownership of HighWire in 2014. As of 2017, Meta, underwritten by the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, will include all of the journals published by HIghWire as part of its mission to support the science and technology that will make it possible to cure, prevent or manage all diseases by the end of the century.
As HIgher Logic Partners, we use Higher Logic's API to index your organization's discussion forum content. We'll need your organization's HLIAMKey to get started (you can get this from your Higher Logic handler/representative). We get metadata over the webservice that we can use as filters in your search like the names of the forums, dates, and authors.
More details can be found in this PDF (.83 MB) of Higher Logic's API documentation.
Of note, we also used to connect to Higher Logic competitor Socious until Higher Logic acquired them in early 2017!
FUSE takes advantage of Facebook’s Graph API (one of many they publish) to index the latest posts your organization makes. We typically pull - besides the post itself - likes, application (e.g. Hootsuite, Sprout Social, Buffer), author, and date. If you have something else in mind, let us know as we have lots of flexibility here.
Widely known in Europe website management platform acquired by Accel-KKR in 2015 and merged with Ektron. We use Epi’s API to get at most of your structured content but, like Ektron, have a custom web service we use to reach the unstructured stuff.
Of note, Episerver has its own enterprise search called Find. Find is extraordinarily expensive in terms of licensing, development required for it to federate, and hosting. FUSE Search has the same features (and more) but is much more flexible (i.e. plays nicely with others) and cost-effective.
Popular publisher headquartered in Amsterdam, Netherlands for the healthcare and science community. FUSE uses their robust API to connect to your data. We’ll need for you to generate a key for us before we can get started and Elsevier has strict limits on API calls which usually means FUSE’s initial indexing can take quite a bit of time spread out over several days or weeks (i.e. index a little bit on Monday, little more on Tuesday, rinse and repeat).
After the initial indexing is complete FUSE only needs to index newly added content which, for many organizations, is once or twice a month. This rarely, if ever, comes up against an API limit.
Longtime website management platform acquired by Accel-KKR in 2015 and merged with Episerver.
Unless you already have one, we'd write a webservice that's custom to your content (e.g. Smart Forms) using Ektron's API. We have a few of these under our belt so it’s more a matter of tweaking what we’ve got. As with any content connector, all of our work is included under our fixed fee structure.
Open source website management software most often compared and contrasted with WordPress.
Are you using Drupal Views to build-out your content (at least the content you want to index)? If so, the best option for Fuse to connect to it is the Views Datasource module. If you’re not using Views, please let us know what you’re using so we can suggest something.
A career center solution under the Naylor Association Solutions family of offerings. Naylor acquired Boxwood Technology, the makers of Boxwood, in 2014. FUSE Search pulls your organization's job listings and related taxonomy. Site users can filter, for example, based on state, salary, or position type.
Members may be coming to your site for something else altogether but imagine their delight when a new job catches their eye in their search results. That's the value of membership at work.
