After vendor meetings, product presentations, white paper reviews, and in-house presentations to ATR stakeholders, and a 6-month - 1 year market research it was concluded that SearcbBlox was best valued product capable of meeting the Antitrust Division's search requirements as well as the lowest priced product.
