Using Scout is like using an internet search engine, but instead of searching websites for useful information you are actually searching your very own files within your organisation’s shared directories and repositories.
Birmingham, UK (PRWEB) June 6, 2006
Component Workshop Ltd, a UK based company, launch the Enterprise Search Engine, Scout, with a free 15 day trial. Company Director, Floyd Price, says “Using Scout is like using an internet search engine, but instead of searching websites for useful information you are actually searching your very own files within your organisation’s shared directories and repositories.”
Time Costs Money. Searching for critical business information is expensive and time consuming. Scout is ready to do that job for you. A free 15 day evaluation is offered with the launch. Scout's high performance Index structure enables quick retrieval of information in seconds rather than minutes, and saves time again and again. Company Director, Floyd Price says, “We are confident that once you have used Scout during the trial period you won’t be able to work productively without it.”
Component Workshop Ltd launch Scout, the enterprise search engine that will improve the way businesses locate their critical information across their whole enterprise. Individuals and businesses today are challenged with the daily, ever increasing need to find information filed away electronically, not least since the implementation of the Freedom of Information Act and the need for compliance, and the more we use the technology available to us the greater this challenge will become. Scout provides the solution to this problem.
Scout negates the need for expensive document management systems, it is easy to install and ready for use instantly. Scout provides the answer to locating information wherever it is filed in a network environment, supporting compliance with the Freedom of Information Act which gives everyone the right to access information held by an organization whilst the holders of information have a duty to publish information on request. Providing the correct information at the right time to the right people is not easy today. Scout provides the solution to the problem and will enable users to:
Deliver the right information to the right people at the right time
Provide access to valuable, sometimes hard to find, even forgotten, information;
Work smarter by preventing information duplication when employees re-create information they cannot find;
Provide document summaries for faster reading;
Remove the labour-intensive process of file management;
Scout uses the very latest Microsoft .NET 2.0 technology to compile your organisation’s network shares and document repositories into a high performance index that can be searched from your web browser and retrieve information in seconds instead of minutes, hours and sometimes weeks! Because Scout is optimized for searching you can find the documents you need from hundreds of thousands, indexed in a fraction of a second. The more you use Scout the better you will become at finding the documents to meet you business needs.
Director, Floyd Price says “We are delighted to be announcing the launch of Scout. Our team have over 30 years experience within the ICT and systems sector and it is clear to us as an organization, and I’m sure to anyone who has ever saved a file electronically, that the problem of file management and locating information is and continues to be a growing problem which Scout addresses“.
Scout scours the content of every file you create (or have already created) generating a master index that's ready for instant search and retrieval. Scout can index millions of documents whilst maintaining document/user level security. The disk cost of the index is approximately one third the size of your included directories. Initial indexing of included directories is totally dependent on the size of each included directory. During trials an average of 5 minutes per 1,000 documents was recorded. During indexing users will experience no degradation in productivity and Scout it ready to search during the indexing process.
