ISYS products are designed to provide
fast search engine functionality in a range of different environments.
ISYS:web and ISYS:web.asp
provide search in a web-based environment such as an intranet or website.
ISYS:desktop is a network-based
search application that can be used on a single PC, searching email and
personal documents, right up to thousands of PCs across enterprise-wide
LANs and WANs. The ISYS:sdk enables
developers to embed ISYS search into their custom applications. ISYS also
has products for email-only search, CD distribution and other applications;
see the Full Product Suite
page for more.
Whether it be ISYS:web on a corporate
intranet, ISYS:desktop across a local-area network or another one of ISYS'
search tools, ISYS products ship with a core set of out-of-the-box features
designed to guide users through the search process quickly and easily.
- Multiple Query Methods. ISYS takes into
account that not everyone is a search expert, and therefore offers three
query methods. Command Line Query enables advanced users to construct
Boolean, proximity and fielded searches; Menu-Assisted Query offers
intermediate users the same functionality in a more user-friendly environment;
and Natural Language Query provides users the means to phrase their
searches in the form of a question.
- Relevance Algorithm. All of the ISYS search engine
products incorporate the proprietary ISYS relevance algorithm. This
determines the most relevant documents in the result set, and returns
these at the top of the results list.
- Hit Highlighting and Hit-To-Hit Navigation.
Search tools, no matter how advanced, are useless without the ability
to take users directly to the relevant portions of the document. ISYS
employs Hit Highlighting and Hit-To-Hit Navigation to enable users to
quickly locate and jump between search results.
- Outline View. For large files, ISYS
offers its Outline Browse feature, which enables users to quickly view
just the relevant portions of a document, rather than having to load
and scan the entire file.
- Linguistic Handling. ISYS offers a
variety of linguistic capabilities designed to account for misspellings,
tense conflation, plurals and synonyms. With these features enabled,
an ISYS search for ‘manage’ will return results for ‘manages’,
‘management’, ‘manager’, ‘deal’
and ‘cope’ – even if the user misspells 'manage'.
- 125 File Formats, 30 Languages.
ISYS offers broad file format and foreign language support to provide
users with a truly comprehensive search solution. Supported
file formats include Microsoft Office documents, WordPerfect, emails,
attachments, PDFs, XML, databases and more. ISYS’ foreign
language support includes Chinese (traditional and simplified),
Japanese and Korean.
