Products Overview

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.

Core Features

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. These include:

  • 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.
