What is Alchemy® ?
Virtually any industry, any department in your enterprise, and any business application can benefit from the power of Alchemy.
Documents are maintained in their original file formats that may include scanned documents, ERM/COLD files, CAD files, web pages, text documents, e-mail and more.
The software is easy to install and use, requiring no database management skills, no programming, and no client-server expertise. The system is Windows and web compatible.
Alchemy also has powerful programmable interfaces for integration with other business applications.
With an Alchemy solution, you can integrate and organise hundreds of different information formats including computer reports, electronic documents and paper-based records; and provide open access to them for everyone in your business via Internet technologies, LAN/WAN, Intranet or portable media such as CD and DVD.
What makes Alchemy the best choice?
Alchemy Build is used by those responsible for creating and contributing to document databases. It includes a very powerful engine for full-text, document field, folder field and annotation text indexing.
Alchemy Build can archive an entire document database (documents, data, full-text index, search program and viewers) to any storage media (CD, DVD, RAID etc). Alchemy remains the industry leader in this and is popular in all industries that are required to archive electronic documents.
Alchemy databases are compliant with the Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) industry standard and can be accessed using SQL tools and applications. Unlike other client/server database or document management systems, Alchemy requires no database management skills, no programming, and no client/server expertise to operate.
Alchemy Search is the full-featured Windows client used for read-only access to the document databases created with Alchemy Build. Each database can have one to hundreds of simultaneous users. Access to databases means the end user can query by full-text or data fields, view a hit list, view the contents of a document or data record, and print, fax, or email the document. Accessing databases using a Web browser is simple, through the optional Alchemy Web Server
Unlike similar sophisticated and powerful search engines and document managers, the Alchemy user interface is simple to learn and use. Customers range from microfilm researchers to CEOs.
