Agent Software, providers of intelligent search solutions, has announced Precision Recall, a desktop application that takes the concept of federated search to the individual to improve the accuracy of research, boost productivity, and enable users to more easily share research files.
Precision Recall allows users to collect, organize, and publish content from a variety of resource repositories including local files, email, and the Web. Precision Recall accomplishes this within one integrated application interface. Precision Recall is fully complementary with search tools including Google, and extends and enhances Apple's Spotlight technology introduced in their recent OS X 10.4 Tiger Release. Precision Recall is an integrated search application that returns results to queries based on user-defined properties. Its categorization technology creates an interactive topic view into a local repository that organizes results into relevant groups and dynamically creates virtual folders containing content users can customize. Users personalize results within areas of interest through evaluation of the appropriateness of the content, which they can then edit, annotate, and rate. Plug-ins for RSS feeds, subscription sources and other search tools are under development.
Pricing for Precision Recall starts at $99.00 per individual user depending on features and system configurations. Discounts are available for government, education, and non-profit organizations. Precision Recall for the Apple 10.4 Tiger platform is available now; the company will offer a Windows platform product and support Microsoft's Office desktop suite in Q1 of 2006.
