“Customer response has been phenomenal. And the search features in FileCenter powered by dtSearch have been well-received and widely praised by customers, partners and pundits.”
Lucion develops and distributes applications that enhance and streamline day-to-day business tasks. The company’s FileCenter is an easy-to-use, low-cost electronic document and file management software suite. It enables smaller, document-intensive offices to save, image, find, send, share and backup all critical documents and files. FileCenter’s integrated feature set and electronic file cabinet also allow smaller offices to enhance and streamline day-to-day business tasks at an affordable price point.

“Designed from the ground up for small offices with small IT budgets and little to no IT support, FileCenter is the first product of its kind and its price point,” said a representative of the company. Architecting the software to meet the small office market presented many challenges. Among the challenges were designing the software without a backend database, without profiling, and without costly and dedicated hardware. “The underlying assumption in the development of the product was that a combination of clean organization of file structures and a robust search engine could achieve the same end as cumbersome profiling techniques and expensive database driven approaches. That said, we needed a robust and proven search technology.”

To meet FileCenter’s unique needs, Lucion chose the dtSearch Text Retrieval Engine. “dtSearch has been indispensable in meeting those requirements. dtSearch is by far the most powerful product for desktop searching we have found. We quickly and easily integrated the product into our workflow, providing our users an integrated search experience previously unavailable. We were easily able to embed the dtSearch Engine and add our own interface for a seamless end-user experience.”

“Because FileCenter integrates a scan process, which OCRs incoming documents and saves them as full-text searchable PDF's, the use of fuzzy logic and stemming within dtSearch has been indispensable. No filing system is perfect, nor is any OCR technology. Anyone who has tried using OCR knows that it is not a perfect technology and does not always correctly translate documents. This is why powerful search has become indispensable to our customers. In effect, dtSearch makes up for OCR’s shortcomings with its powerful fuzzy and stemming search methods.”

The end result has been a big success for the small office market. “Customer response has been phenomenal, And the search features in FileCenter powered by dtSearch have been well-received and widely praised by customers, partners and pundits.”
