PC DOCS/Fulcrum unveils new enterprise table of contents

PC DOCS/Fulcrum, announced the Enterprise Table of Contents (ETOC), a new component to be featured in upcoming versions of the DOCSFulcrum enterprise knowledge management system. ETOC technology allows users to browse a hierarchy of all information available in an enterprise — similar to the table of contents in a book – by employing a neural network-based content analysis technology to automatically classify information from a variety of different sources and repositories. This eliminates the primary difficulty of not knowing precisely what to look for or where in the network to start looking for knowledge that matters to the user. Information is pulled from file systems, Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Notes, databases, document indexes, and other information systems available to DOCSFulcrum. www.pcdocs.com

For example, users can now sort documents based upon their status (checked-in or checked-out), who checked them out, and apply Outlook rules. The expanded search capabilities of DMS are made available through the usual search dialogs. Users can also move mail messages and attachments straight into the DMS without the need for a separate interface or application.
