The Need
Kaboose requested Mr Horton to provide project management services¬† to create the world’s first family friendly search engine. He applied his special expertise to fulfill the contract to build the world’s first, family-friendly search engine in 2003, and consulted with Kaboose to help build their infrastructure in project management methodology, and team building up until 2005, prior to their public offering.

The Solution
Mr. Horton sourced the development team, created the project plan, developed and deployed the solution for their search engine concept. The aggressive timeline required developers to work on-site for a period of 4 months. They continually worked with Kaboose to establish their search engine application and adjust its functionality to support ongoing business needs.

The Results
The world’s first search engine application supporting banned content filters, online ad management, directory support and a fully functional administration area with multi-level permissions in order to support delegation of tasks and directory management. In addition to completing the project on time and on budget, Kaboose extended our contract for nearly two years as we lead the internal development of games, marketing and advertising campaigns and team development.

Mr Horton directed the development of the proprietary technology which integrated linux, MS Sequel Server, .net and .php technologies. The unique mix of technologies awarded Kaboose government re-embursement through SRDC funds, for contributing to the development of Canadian technology and strategy. The cross section of technologies also enabled full integration of the search appliance with the existing Kaboose system architecture.
