Local and Remote Searching Combined:
FlexDocs uses our innovative two-track search and display architecture. This design provides you with access to the widest possible array of document formats, while matching the viewing technology to the type of content. The user interface is web-based, straightforward, and easy to use.
Track 1: Search by Document Attributes: Many documents you wish to make available to your users are not available in an electronic form. Therefore, in your FlexDocs Repository they will not be text or HTML (Web) documents; they will be scanned images of the actual documents. These items will be carefully cataloged, with specific attributes assigned to help you locate them.
This type of search is the most precise, focused search, and brings back all documents matching the criteria entered, and sorted in the sequence your user requests.
Track 2: Full-Text Search: For a wider array of documents which are stored in either
simple text or HTML (Web) format, FlexDocs includes a Full-Text Search. In a Full-Text Search, you enter one or more keywords and FlexDocs locates documents in our indexes which contain these words or phrases. FlexDocs can index web pages and documents on your servers and/or documents across the web on remote servers, in any combination.
During an actual search, many of the text and Web format documents may be right in your FlexDocs Repository, others may be on other servers elsewhere on the Web. In either case, the FlexDocs Search Results screen links you directly to the document for viewing and/or printing.
This indexing and searching strategy gives FlexDocs the best of both worlds: Electronic document formats, and scanned or image documents. Electronic documents which reside on servers in any remote location may be included in your searchable FlexDocs index.
