Northwoods Image and logoWith over 300 web sites using the Titan CMS/Portal Enterprise Content Management System Titan CMS), Northwoods Software Development, Inc. can boast an impressive list of satisfied customers. Northwoods however does not stand on its laurels.

Founder and President Pat Bieser states, “In this very competitive economy we need to continue to provide innovative solutions to our customers, while maintaining a high level of service.”

The Titan Document Management System (Titan DMS), an add-on to the Titan CMS suite is doing just that. Titan DMS offers a wide range of features that allows its users to organize, classify and secure their documents and other digital assets. Titan DMS users can securely publish their managed document and digital assets to their website.

“When Northwoods decided to add a full-text and field level searching to the Titan DMS Library, the technical team chose dtSearch. “One of the key features in this decision was dtSearch's ability to simultaneously spider and index databases and directory files. dtSearch lightening fast retrieval engine was another.”

Titan DMS information is stored in a Microsoft-SQL database. This information includes (and is not limited to):
  1. Document type for many common documents such as Adobe Acrobat, Microsoft Word and Macromedia Presentation.
  2. Physical location of the actual document in the file system.
  3. Document level security classifications (who can view the document — especially common on Intranet and Extranet sites)
  4. Other user defined classification.
Using Microsoft C# programming language, Northwoods staff has developed secure custom web services and components that spider the Titan DMS database records and the associated files, indexes them and display the results based on a user defined search screen (figure 1). All results are returned as XML. This solution give Northwoods the flexibility to handle a myriad of unique customer specification in terms of how they want to classify, store and display their documents in Titan DMS.

“So far Northwoods’ customers have been impressed with the new features added to Titan DMS. As Northwoods continues to expand it service offerings and software solutions, we will look to dtSearch to continue to meet and exceed expectations.”
