Modern Micro Imaging uses dtSearch to power Department of Transportation crash test safety database

“The speed was fantastic, virtually instanteous”

“The support team was fabulous.”
Modern Micro Imaging‚s mission is to help businesses connect their "old world" microfilm and paper documents with their modern digital counterparts. Recently, Modern Micro Imaging began incorporating the dtSearch Text Retrieval Engine into solutions where customers needed text search and retrieval for the massive databases that Modern Micro Imaging would create.

One such massive database was the Department of Transportation (DOT) NHTSA crash test database. A mixture of text and images, the database includes crash test results from the automobile companies. "We picked dtSearch for this project because of the interface, the features, and the speed," said Doug Jones, Director, Computer Imaging Services, Modern Micro Imaging. "The speed was fantastic, virtually instantaneous."

Modern Micro Imaging also liked the simplicity of the dtSearch Text Retrieval Engine searching API--and the ease with which it translated into an easy-to-use product for end-users. "The controls were easy to understand and use, for both in-house and for our customers," said Mr. Jones. "Training was virtually non-existent." Regarding dtSearch Corp., Mr. Jones added: "The support team was fabulous."
