AccessPro Accelerator helps governments speed up the preparation and release of information.

Privasoft Corporation, a world leader in freedom of information (FOI) case management solutions, announced today the addition of AccessPro Accelerator to its AccessPro Suite. AccessPro Accelerator is a high-speed search engine that produces search results more than 300 times faster than standard operating system searches.

Initial trials demonstrate that more than one million documents can be searched in less than two seconds using AccessPro Accelerator. With this solution, FOI officers will be able to improve the timeliness of their responses to requests for government information. AccessPro Accelerator reduces search time with features that include 'global search and redact' and the automation of identifying duplicate pages for improved processing.

"AccessPro Accelerator helps to expedite the legislative review of information prior to release" said Brian Jensen, President of Privasoft. "Its introduction into the AccessPro Suite complements our existing systems and tools that are empowering government agencies to apply best practices for open government."

The Canadian Federal government is focused on improving open government in Canada. The Open Government Act, a legislative proposal to support the Access to Information Act (Bill C-2), is currently being reviewed by the Senate and House of Commons. Under this bill, federal agencies would be mandated to provide access to records in a timelier manner, protect sensitive information such as requestor identity, and track all requests.

The AccessPro Suite is a FOI request tracking, redaction and processing solution that provides agencies with tools to streamline FOI case management. Privasoft also provides government departments with the best practices for recording and managing requests and the protection of sensitive information.
