This information is then used to create metadata that is loaded into your database and available for searching and browsing. GathererPLUS also incorporates automated classification tools that allow you to create a taxonomy – either based on a local thesaurus, created from the built-in taxonomy shipped with the product, or created based on training from documents available within your organization. With GathererPLUS, you classify documents based on this taxonomy and use the taxonomy as the basis for creating browsable directories that are incorporated into searching.
RESOURCE OPTIONS PRODUCTS

RO ImageBase NEW!
IMAGE MANAGEMENT SOLUTION

Resource Options is proud to present a new package that has been developed using the Inmagic product suite DB/Text workgroup. This new package is called RO ImageBase and is a comprehensive package that enables you to manage your image collections with ease. This Package is able to categorise your images and give you complete control of what information is displayed to you or your users. Most industry standard formats are supported including *.jpg, *.gif, *.tif and *.bmp etc…

Each Image in the ImageBase contains a unique ID to separate each record for easy searching and categorising. An optional bar-coding system can be used if you are also managing tangible Images that also have a digital copy. In this method you can control not only the digital image in your ImagBase but also the actual tangible image.

RO ImageBase comes in one or two interfaces these being 32bit windows or a web-based interface. It is also important to remember that these interfaces are customizable to your requirements, either to suite yourself or your business requirements. If you do select the web interface this enables you to publish your
image collection to your intranet or the internet. From both interfaces you can add records, display records and their images, edit records and delete records.

RO ImageBase is a comprehensive tool to help categorise and manage your image collections today.

Maxus Overdue Emailer NEW!
SEND OVERDUE NOTICES TO YOUR BORROWERS VIA EMAIL

This means that Borrowers with multiple items overdue may receive a large number of email messages. Maxus Overdue Emailer bypasses this problem through a combination of report design in DB/TextWorks and the installation of an email utility on your Web Server. The email utility will run on any web server running Microsoft IIS and an SMTP server. WebPublisher PRO is not required.
