Most businesses could use more internal organization, but many lack the appropriate tools to do so, especially when it comes to document organization. Aquaforest's Searchlight is a response and solution to the estimated 20% of documents that are created in non-searchable formats and then stored by businesses. These documents, which frequently include contracts, faxes, and important data documents, do not typically come up in search because they are image-only rather than text. Standard Microsoft Search only searches for tags and text, meaning that image documents are difficult if not impossible to find except through manual browsing. Searchlight locates these documents, stores them in document libraries, and then if desired by the user, converts them into a readable and searchable format using Aquaforest's OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology. AquaForest also created their technology for usability by more businesses, using a standalone platform that can be uploaded to any server, and an easy to use Graphic User Interface (GUI). AquaForest has presented a viable business solution for the problem that many business owners face.
AquaForest's OCR technology, combined with a unique merging technology, preserves the formatting of the documents but makes them searchable. The process includes recognizing text, and then merging real text into the PDF or scan, allowing Windows software to search and use it, without changing the document. The GUI allows users to quickly access, audit and search individual files or folders and then make conversions on individual or all documents that have been audited in-place, or from a new document library. Libraries are created for organization, and can be monitored to automatically add new documents.
So far, reception has been great, with users already praising Searchlight's usability and efficiency. While the product was just released, AquaForest offers free trials with audit functions for business owners to use to make a purchase decision, and the technology is already catching on.
“I believe the Searchlight product is unique and definitely a “leader” in this kind of document management workflow. The product is easy to configure and does exactly what it states it does: Automatically OCR SharePoint document libraries or Local Locations. Highly efficient, fully auditable, complete with check out & check in comments.” Says SharePoint Specialist,
For businesses, Searchlight presents a ground breaking simple method of searching within unsearchable documents and is currently one of the only alternatives to manual browsing and selection. The software integrates an easy to use service with a much-needed solution for document organizing and monitoring. Searchlight is also multi-lingual and able to use OCR conversion on more than 100 languages including Chinese, Korean, and Japanese.
Searchlight supports Windows File Systems, SharePoint 2010, SharePoint 2013,
Searchlight can now be purchased or downloaded for a free trial from AquaForest's website and can be purchased with multiple extra cost options such as metadata extraction, iFilter modules, extended OCR modules and compression, and more.
