Using a set of training documents, Categorize “reads” the content and ntelligently “learns” the type of information you expect to see in each category. The resulting definitions can then be customized and refined by expert users to ensure accuracy. Incoming documents are then “read” in the same manner and compared to category definitions until a suitable match is found at which time the document will be assigned to that category. Capable of handling over 250,000 pages of text per hour, Categorize can work on HTML, XML, MS Office, PDF, and e-mail and be used to catalog research and patent documents, journal articles, websites, analyst reports, legal briefs, etc. The administration functions allow you to continually monitor the performance of the system and make changes as needed to deliver the highest degree of accuracy. www.lexiquest.com
