XING, the online business social network, is now offering faster access to its search function with the help of new partner, Click.to. Click.to is a desktop accelerator tool, designed by Karlsruhe developers Axonic, which automatically starts a search query on XING when the desired word is selected. With no detours, it redirects the user to the search results page straight from XING. The Click.to application with integrated XING search is currently available for free download.
Now, if the user comes across an interesting product, company or industry, they’ll immediately be able to search for relevant information on XING just by using the Click.to XING icon. Whether it’s a Facebook recommendation from a friend, an address in an email or a business name from an online news article – it’s searchable with Click.to XING. The user just highlights the search text, presses Ctrl + C and the XING icon instantly appears alongside their mouse cursor. They are then guided to the appropriate XING search results page. The tedious business of starting the web browser and typing a search query into XING no longer applies. Click.to XING turns every highlighted word into a direct link.
Searches in Google, Wikipedia and similar websites, can also be executed immediately. In addition, highlighted text can be sent as an email, published on Facebook or kept as a note in Evernote, activities that would otherwise require up to a dozen clicks each.
Click.to works not only with text, but with anything you can copy to the clipboard: files, images, emails and HTML. Depending on the type of data, Click.to offers the appropriate action icons. With one click, photos can be opened in an image editing program and files can be added to BOX.
A win-win situation for XING and Click.to
“We’re really excited about the app published by Axonic”, said Philipp Mühlenkord, Corporate Development Manager at XING AG,“because it makes it really easy for XING users to integrate Click.to search results.”
“The service XING offers is the perfect complement to Click.to. Integrating this service into our product will really round out our portfolio by contributing the benefits of a successful business social network,” said Martin Welker, CEO and founder of Axonic. “We’re thrilled to call XING a partner of Click.to.”
