Microsearch Site Defined
A Microsearch Site is a web-based collection of indexed client documents and associated metadata. The client Microsearch Site is secure and searchable, and because it utilizes cloud-based technology, its documents are accessible anywhere, anytime.
Microsearch provides 100% of the services a client requires to transform its collection of document into a Microsearch Site. Microsearch services related to a Microsearch Site include:
- Obtaining a unique web address
- Creating the host website
- Adding Security Features
- Scanning, converting, and indexing client documents and metadata
- Creating a Table of Contents
- Incorporating a high-powered document search engine
- Allowing browser-based document retrieval for all devices, wired and wireless.
Cloud Hosting Services
Microsearch hosts each client Microsearch Site in a secure, SAS 70 Type II secure server farm. In addition, Microsearch redundantly backs up each client Microsearch Site at a remote location, so in the unlikely event the server farm cannot be accessed, the backup location can be brought online. Finally, the client Microsearch Site contents are backed-up a third time in Microsearch’s office, in a secure vault, in the event the online Site ever should need to be rebuilt.
Archive and Storage
A Microsearch Site performs double-duty as an off-site Archive and Storage solution for client critical documents:
Search and Retrieval
A client private Microsearch Site incorporates a high performance Search and Retrieval solution, utilizing the newest version of our search engine, Websearch Studio©. Websearch Studio© searches through all the documents and metadata in the Microsearch Site regardless of format: html, text, Adobe PDF, and all Microsoft formats: Excel, Word, and PowerPoint.
Websearch Studio© is also includes a retrieval engine that is flexible enough to allow the user to set preferences to maximize the performance if the hardware/network available. Different preference settings adjust for different combinations of hardware and network, from wired workstation to mobile device with a slow connection.
