ISYS:spider lets you identify websites on the Internet
that contain information relevant to your business, and then incorporate
them into your ISYS index, providing a single, convenient repository for
all your information needs. ISYS:spider indexes
information from websites, Lotus Domino and Unix files, and incorporates
them into an integrated, searchable resource.
Nominate the URL of the web site you
want and ISYS:spider will scan only those areas of the site that you specify,
indexing the content and adding it to your local ISYS index. This can
then be accessed via ISYS:web on an intranet or website, or using ISYS:desktop
on a PC or network.
When searches are performed, the information
is returned in a seamless and transparent fashion. Hits from various remote
sites are intermixed with hits from your own PC or network, with no unnecessary
distinction made between them.
Best of all, you can choose which way
you view the external material. When you click on a document you wish
to view, ISYS can present the web page to you complete with hit highlighting
and hit-to-hit navigation.
Alternatively, ISYS lets you activate
your Internet browser and view the information directly from the web site.
ISYS:spider also generates local indexes
for remote Lotus Notes and Unix servers.
