Premirus Technologies Corporation specializes
in the creation of large, integrated document
solutions that include full-text research capabilities,
multilevel indexing, fielded searching, automatic
cross referencing, integrated OCR, document imaging,
and other features. Premirus consultants have
worked with data repositories ranging from a few
hundred documents to terabytes of data. The largest
implementations completed by Premirus consultants
are hybrid combinations of SQL Server, dtSearch,
and other industry leading components, running
on Windows.NET Advanced Server.
Premirus’ flagship product
is Premirus Imaging, a multi-server Web-based
document management component with OCR and full
text indexing. Premirus Imaging provides for multi-scanner
support. Documents can be entered into the system
from multiple different scanner points, with OCR
performance in the background. Premirus Imaging
then sweeps the documents from local servers into
a central repository each night. In addition to
OCR’ed text, Premirus Imaging also accepts
into this repository all major word processing
formats and imaging formats, as well as other
popular "Office" files like Excel, Access,
use a number of built-in document fields,
as well as including through dtSearch's xfilter
several on-the-fly fields that we picked up
while indexing. Even with incremental dtSearch
xfilter-enabled builds, search time was generally
less than a second.
For indexing and searching the central repository,
Premirus chose the dtSearch Text Retrieval Engine.
"Each day, the dSearch Engine does an incremental
daily build to add documents to the index."
Premirus liked the broad range of search options
provided by the dtSearch Engine. "We use
fuzzy searching, phonic searching, stemming, thesaurus,
fields, the whole dtSearch works."
For fielded data, Premirus used the dtSearch
Engine’s "xfilter." "We use
a number of built-in document fields, as well
as including through dtSearch's xfilter several
on-the-fly fields that we picked up while indexing.
Even with incremental dtSearch xfilter-enabled
builds, search time was generally less than a
Premirus also liked the flexible nature of the
dtSearch Engine product as it fit into their own
components. "Our components are all written
in C# and C++.NET. dtSearch worked wonderfully
with managed and unmanaged C# and C++ code within
the .NET framework. The final results coming out
of dtSearch are converted to XML by the middle-tier
server, and can be presented as either XML or
HTML following a search, with the retrieved data
then converted to ADO.NET data sets."
