Frisk Retrieval can be implemented as a simple and effective tool to help businesses improve efficiencies, reduce operational costs and enhance their ability to meet the requirements of legal and regulatory bodies.
What is Frisk
Frisk is a document search and retrieval appliance developed in Australia and New Zealand.
- Once connected to your network, Frisk holds an index of where to find documents and allows you to search via a simple web browser.
- Frisk indexes text searchable documents (Microsoft Office documents, Open Office documents, text searchable pdf’s and other text based documents across your network shares and intranet. Frisk also indexes email + attachments within Microsoft Exchange databases.
- Frisk indexes every word and number on every page of the document and also indexes the file name.
- Frisk does not index picture format documents such as older pdf’s, jpeg’s etc.
- Frisk is easy to operate, search functionality includes most standard search functions including wildcard, exclusions, phrase searching plus advanced searching which includes searching via date ranges, specified file types and within certain shares/directories.
- Frisk is secure, it honours your network permissions and will only deliver search results based on your permission to see/read them.
- Frisk has been developed to return search results in under a second, giving you time to refine your search easily if required.
- Your data can be structured or unstructured, because Frisk indexes every word and number on every page of a document, it can eliminate the risk of human error. If you misfile/save a document in a wrong location or name it in a manner that others may not interpret, Frisk will still find it as long as you know something about the content of the document.
- Because Frisk indexes text searchable content only, it has reporting functions to identify documents that could not be indexed, enabling you to review and consider converting them to a text searchable format. Frisk relationship managers can advise and assist with conversion processes.
