About DocuLex WebSearch
A component of DocuLex Archive Studio, WebSearch is an easy to use, browser-based enterprise content management application developed for use throughout a business's operations to enable secure content access from any location with convenience of use that is similar, yet easier, than an Internet search engine. Searches may be performed using document specific meta data descriptions, full text content, as well as date ranges, search history, search lists and saved searches.

Driven by a convenient dashboard display featuring the program's functions menu, WebSearch is now a workflow enabler, providing users the ability to share and amend native format documents, while organizing and tracking each amended version. The program's WorkSpace enables users to group sets of documents together to be shared with colleagues, and a discussion feature has been added for users to comment on document's content. The SharePortal function of WorkSpace enables users with the ability to securely share documents with 3rd party guests.

Beneficial to the user is a Web2.0 visually appealing browser interface, with functionality that is easier to use than most Windows applications. The server-based software automates complex documentation organizational functions including browser-based file room views and group collaboration folders.

Documents of any file type may be uploaded directly to WebSearch, indexed (with additional document identifying metadata added remotely if necessary) for native format storage and ease of access.

SQL or SQL Express database support handles substantial file data storage, providing users with Microsoft's off-the-shelf database power. The Active Directory integration enables heightened security and user permission access and tracking. The program manages multiple levels of security, including Organization, Community, Group, Users, as well as individual files. Document and user activity tracking logs are always available, assisting in compliance of privacy laws.

WebSearch also serves as an off site document archival/disaster recovery facilitator, with advanced public-key infrastructure (PKI) providing encryption and digital signature security for outsourcing daily-use information access to the electronic file storage.
