An efficient search engine is vital if the full potential of your medium sized corporate network is to be realized. Ideally, you or your users should be able to find that important document or file almost instantly. We offer a free solution: a self-contained index-based network search engine that indexes all shared files in your local area network and provides users with the ability to locate necessary files within a few seconds. It returns blazingly fast search results to your users, even when large numbers of shared files and folders are present.
The built-in web-server and database ensure trouble free deployment and configuration while the web-based user interface enables users to enter intuitive search queries on all file types using a simple wild-card based format and via their favorite web browser. Our search engine will be delivering enhanced performance direct to users within minutes of deployment and with little or no training required.
Of course, raw search speed is not the only performance criteria. The GUI based administration console provides access to a variety of powerful features and configurable options that make it flexible enough to fulfil most needs. For example, files or folders can be selectively included or excluded from the database index while the index itself can be maintained using an incremental multi-threaded crawl mode that demands only minimal network resources. Once initial indexing is complete, Network Search Engine will not introduce unnecessary network traffic.
Do you already have a web server, such as IIS, installed? That's fine. The SoftPerfect Network Search Engine will make use of third party ISAPI & CGI compliant servers with minimum configuration issues. In most cases, configuration simply consists of copying over a group of supplied files to your web server folder.
