The company's stated goal was to develop new algorithms for ranking, independent of the type of data, and to facilitate efficient distribution and scaling of processing power and data over a large cluster of computers. Implementation of these specifications commenced in 2003, and the first version (Munax P1) was released in 2005, powering the search engine Leit.is. A second version, Munax XE, was released in 2006.
