|Description||Enterprise Search Solutions|
Alcove9 is an advanced, on-premise search engine for engineering and manufacturing enterprises of all sizes and industries. It helps users to quickly find and view parts and related product data that exist in all of the enterprise’s application systems and document files – with countless content formats.
Alcove9 uses a single point-of-access to all part data maintained in simple file structures and application systems, such as PDM, PLM, ERP and ECM. Users can search and retrieve the desired content without knowing in which applications or other repositories it resides.
Alcove9 also supports accessing content with an “intuitive” structure that organizes data into commonly understood categories. Navigation is free-flowing and dynamic allowing users to quickly find all needed data. Once found, it provides: a virtual “mash up” of the retrieved data; full visualization of various document formats, including CAD drawings; and the ability to directly return to the original application – based on its security privileges.
The Alcove9 solution, moreover, is compatible with over 100 file types. It can display the content of the file without the need to log on the authoring program. This feature gives users the ability to access and view data in all information repositories.
