Centric Software, a provider of Product Intelligence solutions for the enterprise, has announced the global availability of Centric InSight 6.0, an intelligent search application that discovers and classifies all structured and unstructured product information stored behind the firewall in disparate, enterprise-wide systems. Centric InSight enables access to product documents, technical drawings, bills of material, ERP records, and other content.
Centric InSight discovers and classifies results based on common product attributes from multiple systems, such as CAD, PLM, PDM, and ERP systems, as well as office documents, PDFs, and email files. Its features include comparisons of results, multiple options to manage results as-needed, and respect for established network and data security restrictions that protect document sources, only allowing access based on roles. Additionally the application enables access to technical drawings and manuals to control the costs and schedules of construction projects.
Additional product intelligence built into Centric InSight 6.0 recognizes duplicate results, categorizes results against data types, and gives users options to navigate through un-indexed document relationships. To manage results, users can select to share documents or organize them in a project folder for secure sharing with a cross-functional team over the internet. Selected unmanaged files become manageable with the automatic assignment of revision control identity and population of relevant data-management tags.
