Software targets technical, engineering Internet searches
Centric InSight 6.0 from Centric Software is a specialized search tool intended that provides broader and deeper searches to meet manufacturing and engineering needs. It discovers and classifies results based on common product attributes from multiple systems.
Centric InSight 6.0 from Centric Software is a specialized search tool intended to provide vertical markets such as manufacturing and engineering with broader and deeper searches than Google. The off-the-shelf, intelligent search application discovers and classifies all structured and unstructured product information stored behind a firewall in disparate, enterprise-wide systems. It is said to expedite access to the most important product documents, technical drawings, bills of material, ERP records, and other content, allowing users to spend less time searching and more time making decisions.
According to the developer, generic search engines for broad enterprise applications do not meet the demands of engineering, manufacturing, and facilities looking for technical content, drawings, and construction project data. Centric InSight reportedly has built-in intelligence for the recognition of product and technical content in any search application or engine on the market today. It discovers and classifies results based on common product attributes from multiple systems such as CAD, PLM, PDM, and ERP systems, and office documents, PDFs, and email files. Features include comparisons of results, multiple options to manage results, and respect for established network and data security restrictions that protect document sources, only allowing access based on roles.
Centric InSight 6.0 recognizes duplicate results, categorizes results against data types, and gives users options to navigate through un-indexed document relationships. To manage results, users can select to share documents or organize them in a project folder for secure sharing with a cross-functional team over the Internet. Selected unmanaged files instantly become manageable with the automatic assignment of revision control identity and population of relevant data-management tags.
