Forsvarsbygg (The Norwegian Defence Estates Agency (NDEA) is an organization ensuring optimal planning, construction, administration, leasing and sales of defence estates and properties. It has approximately 1400 employees (FTE´s).


As very many public organizations, Forsvarsbygg has an ECM application as the central repository for their important information and for process support. Their ECM application is Ephorte, one of the leading applications in public sector. The ability to better find, reuse and consider the information available in this single system will clearly assist Forsvarsbygg in their operation and continuous improvements.

Forsvarsbygg has hence implemented “IntelliSearch for Ephorte”, a one-application search solution inside the ECM application. With its search functionality, the search engine further improves the productivity and quality performed by the employees within the case management.
