PowerSearch Software, a developer of affordable and accessible search technologies based in Toronto, has launched its eponymous application that enables users to cull their data prior to collection and to quickly find all files while reducing collection time and costs by 80 percent or more.
With PowerSearch, users simply point the software to their local drive or network repository to quickly generate a snapshot of all available files. PowerSearch is the only product on the market today that allows users to extract, process, search and cull documents before collecting them at no cost. PowerSearch has:
- Built in pre-processing – PowerSearch identifies files that require pre-processing, including .pst and .nsf email formats, as well as zipped and image files.
- Ability to index and analyze files – PowerSearch indexes files for searching and generates exception reports.
- Fast and powerful search capabilities – PowerSearch gives almost instantaneous search results, even on massive amounts of data. Complex searches are easy to construct using drill down technology and the onboard dictionary that shows all the words that exist in the identified files.
- Informative dashboards – PowerSearch includes charts and graphs to show status of the data and project.
“PowerSearch is a great addition to my e-discovery tool set,” stated Marty Musters, director of forensics at Computer Forensics, Inc. and a PowerSearch beta-tester. “It has an easy-to-navigate user interface making it simple to get search results. In addition, the company’s many technical support options ensure there is someone available if I need help.”
“As a records manager, attorney or service provider, knowing what data you have is the foundation of delivering value to your organization or client,” stated Girts Jansons, founder and CEO of PowerSearch. “We wanted to give the legal and records management industries an easy way to access data without large costs involved. We are proud to bring the capabilities of PowerSearch to the market at-large and have received very positive responses from beta testers.”
PowerSearch uses proprietary technology to locate and search files on local drives and network repositories. PowerSearch extracts email repositories and zipped files, indexing the content of emails and electronic documents making them fully searchable. Search results can be saved in folders and if necessary, exported into current tools for further processing.
Unlike other collection and culling products, with PowerSearch there is no charge for deploying the software or for searching or culling. Users only pay for final results, files they ultimately deem relevant and decide to save, by using a system of tokens purchased via PayPal at a fraction of a cent per token. PowerSearch ships with 1,500 tokens.
