Belonging to a big enterprise, it becomes difficult to find relevant data quickly and easily from within the company data. SearchBlox is a solution that can help employees coordinate and collaborate with each other and find data conveniently. It makes information readily available which is a boon to any organization in the digital age. Like any other search engine that works on the Internet, SearchBlox works on the company intranet. The good news is that the latest version of SearchBlox also includes the new email alert feature.
SearchBlox has a friendly interface and its crawler can be scheduled to crawl the file servers at regular time intervals. Administrator gets a lot of options to customize the working of SearchBlox as per organizational needs. It also makes sure that duplicate documents are not indexed to save space and quality of search results. There is also an option to index document department wise. SearchBlox is a great tool and can be used in a hassle free way by any organization. There are no hardware and hefty software to be installed on every desktop. All the users need to have is a browser and they are good to go.
One of the best features of SearchBlox so far is that it highlights the search query in huge pdf documents. Large organizations always keep documentation and manuals etc in html and pdf formats. Most of the time, a user will be looking for a small specific information in the document and will not be interested in reading the entire document. Hence this feature saves a lot of time. It also works well with other systems like workflow software.
Apart from these features, SearchBlox 7.4 comes with an enhanced feature for email alerts. This works like Google alerts where you set the alert with certain keywords. Everytime anything new is posted anywhere on the Intranet, you will be updated on your email. You can also set the frequency of the mails whether you want them immediately, once a day, once a week etc. This is a great feature because it helps you keep up to date with the latest advancements in your domain.
Employees will have better knowledge of what is being done in their company and what is planned to be done. When the employees are well equipped with knowledge, they perform better and in a more relevant way. When they know what are the goals of the company, they can align their own goals with them and work for mutual benefit. Today, more than anything else, what an enterprise needs is motivated employees. In this way, a small investment in SearchBlox can be greatly beneficial for any organization.
With this feature, even managers and decision makers can find relevant information quickly and conveniently. The right decision taken on right time can change the rate at which the enterprise will grow. Information is power and SearchBlox is the right tool to harness it well.
