It’s About Finding, Not Just Searching

Deliver a Unified Knowledge Center

Integrate with both internal and external information repositories, including in-house applications, portals and 3rd party databases.

Create Social Knowledge Networks

Encourage users to act on content and add value via Presto’s social features, such as tagging, liking, commenting and rating.

Turn Searching into Finding

Enable your users to find critical information and expose them to content that they might never have found using traditional search methods.

Advanced search and discovery

Inmagic Presto’s enhanced search and discovery makes it easy for users to find information no matter if it’s your internal content repository, data management system, or an external subscription. Inmagic Presto’s unique search engine displays search results in an optimized format for specific types of content. So books look like books, images like images, people like people, research like research, etc. And with Presto’s Amazon-like faceted search, those results can be filtered and narrowed making discovery easy and efficient.
