Knowledge management company Corpora has rolled out a desktop version of its successful ‘language-savvy’ document summary tool.
The new desktop Summarize costs just under £30 and is aimed at SMBs who need to quickly understand and employ the information within large numbers of text documents.
Summarize creates at the click of a button a summary of a text document that can be of any specified length – the number of words or percentage of the original length, for example. Corpora claims that Summarize is also the only tool of its kind that allows the user to skew summaries towards an area of interest using key words. Previously only available as an enterprise system, Corpora has developed Summarize desktop version in response to demand from small business users and in recognition of the growth and significance of the SMB market.
The new tool is aimed at SMB managers, most of whom need to read large amounts of text - for example to ensure they keep up to date with the latest industry papers and regulations.
Mark Thompson, CEO of Corpora, says, “We live in a world that is increasingly rich with textual information. Small business managers can succeed or fail depending on their ability to understand and employ that information in the quickest time possible. Summarize has been greeted as a breakthrough tool by our corporate customers – we believe that the time is now right to make it available to smaller companies who have less budget, but no less need.”
